Vivendi-owned pay TV operator Canal+ Group has made further changes to its management line-up.
The group has named Thierry Cheleman as director of sports, replacing Thierry Thuillier, whose new role has yet to be spelled out. Didier Lupfer has meanwhile been appointed as director of cinema, replacing Nathalie Coste Cerdan, who is leaving the group.
Guillaume Zeller has been named as editorial director of news channel iTélé, replacing Céline Pigalle, who is leaving the group. Zeller will be advised by journalist Philippe Labro.
Canal+ has also appointed Jean-Christophe Thiery, the newly appointed president of Canal+’s group management board, to take charge of the development of the channel, following the departure of Cécilia Ragueneau, previously CEO of iTélé.
The changes come as Vivendi chairman Vincent Bolloré continues to stamp his authority on the pay TV operator and integrate it more fully with the parent company.
