Georgette Schlick is replacing Eric van Stade as chief executive of Dutch broadcaster SBS Broadcasting.
Van Stade has left the company following the channel’s purchase by Talpa Media and Finnish media firm Sanoma earlier this year. Schlick joins from technology company Dutchview, where she has been chief executive for three years.
“Sanoma and Talpa are happy to get Georgette Schlick as part of our team. We unanimously agreed that Georgette should be the one to lead SBS. She is friendly and decisive at the same time. Exactly what we need at SBS to conquer the challenges that the company faces now and in the years to come to increase its market share,” said Dick Molman, CEO, Sanoma Media Netherlands.
