Tim Mutimer, executive vice president of Banijay Rights for the EMEA zone, will become the new CEO of Cineflix Rights.
Mutimer replaces Chris Bonney, who is retiring this year to play golf and travel the world. Mutimer has worked at Banijay Rights for almost eight years, including five as CEO. He left the CEO seat to take on the EMEA position after the Endemol Shine International merger last year, in which Cathy Payne was installed as his boss.
Mutimer will lead Cineflix Rights’ team of 30, overseeing a show roster that includes Apple Tehran and ITV / Netflix series Marcella. Cineflix rights count Property brothers and Border security among its factual successes.
“Tim has a wealth of industry experience, working successfully with producers, broadcasters and broadcasters to maximize IP opportunities. We are confident that he will lead Cineflix Rights into the next phase of its growth, ”said Cineflix Media co-founders and CEOs Glen Salzman and Katherine Buck.
Mutimer added, “The team enjoys an excellent reputation in the industry for their excellent results through a collaborative business approach, and I am delighted to have this opportunity to work with them.” Bonney added that Mutimer was at the top of his list of successors.
