Studio 100 has brought in Martin Krieger as the CEO of Studio 100 Media and its subsidiaries Studio 100 Film, m4e and the newly formed Studio Isar Animation (Munich/Germany).
Krieger will also be responsible for the global commercial business of Studio 100 International including content distribution, licensing and consumer products for the entire Studio 100 slate and some third party IPs.
Commenting on the appointment, Studio 100 Group co-founder and CEO Hans Bourlon said, “We are delighted to appoint Krieger as the CEO and we have great faith in his ability to lead due to his already impressive accomplishments within our Studio 100 Group. I trust him to successfully steer the company during this new phase and perform an essential management role in our newly formed international leadership team.”
Krieger takes on this role after years of experience within the media and marketing industry including his excellent track record in leading the global content distribution team of Studio 100 previously where he successfully established its international YouTube business. Prior to this, he worked for The Walt Disney Company in various marketing roles and most recently was responsible for content partnerships at YouTube/Google.
Krieger mentioned, “I am grateful and honoured by the trust placed in me. It makes me happy to return to Studio 100, its amazing team and to contribute to the group’s growth in this new role. My leadership will be based on fostering inclusion and diversity to further develop our strong culture. It is through diverse perspectives that we are able to meet today’s audience expectations and anticipate the market needs for tomorrow.”
The appointment of Krieger follows the announcement of Barbara Stephen as Content CEO for Studio 100 International earlier this year, as the company continues to push forward with its global expansion strategy.
“Krieger and I established an excellent working relationship during his time as Global Distribution head and I’m thrilled to be collaborating with him in our new international leadership team working on Studio 100’s global expansion,” added Stephen, who’s also Flying Bark Productions CEO.
