Red Bee names Tillieux as CEO

TV technology company Red Bee Media has hired former ProSiebenSat.1 executive Patrick Tillieux as its new chief executive following the departure of Bill Patrizio.

Tillieux will be charge of the management and strategic direction of Red Bee Media’s technology business, working with broadcasters and rights holders. He will be based in the UK and will report to Michael Cook, chairman of the board.

Tillieux, who was most recently an advisor to a number of private equity firms, was previously chief operating officer and the German broadcast group.

Cook said: “Patrick’s appointment comes at a very exciting time for Red Bee Media. His extensive knowledge and experience of the global media industry will be an invaluable asset as we seek out new opportunities for expansion and help our clients to maximise the opportunities afforded by the collision of broadcasting and broadband. We are delighted to have Patrick on board and believe that he is the ideal candidate to lead Red Bee Media into the next phase of its growth and ensure that the company remains at the very forefront of media technology, creativity and innovation.”
