BeIN Media’s director of digital, Olivier Dufour, is leaving the company after five years to return to independent consultancy.
“I am leaving #beIN after 5 thrilling years, with exceptional team. Now sharing vision & expertise as consulting with industry leaders,” Dufour said in a Tweet announcing his departure.
Dufour was charged with delivering BeIN Sports on multiple screens at BeIN Media Group. Having joined the company as head of digital for France in 2012, he became director of digital for the overall group in January 2014.
Prior to joining the Qatar-based media group, he founded consultancy outfit Otek Media Consulting, which provided services related to new media for BeIN Sports, France Télévisions, Arte, Orange and Middle East consultancy group TiviPro – where he previously worked as chief operating officer and deputy CEO – among others.
He had earlier founded user-generated video pioneer SkemA and had worked in new media roles for France Telecom and Sofrecom.
