Reed Midem announces the departure of Laurine Garaude, television division director at Mipcom and MipTV, of the company at the end of this month. Entertainment chief Jerome Delhaye and deputy TV director Lucy Smith will take on her duties in the interim.
She leaves at the end of the month after an unprecedented year in which both markets were forced to move online because of the coronavirus pandemic. This year’s Mip TV will also take place virtually as Covid-19 continues to hit Europe.
Garaude said: “Reed Midem has been a second home to me and, after nearly three decades, the time is right to step aside. It has been a joy for me to work with such a brilliant team as well as all our amazing partners and clients from around the world in creating and delivering our world class markets and, above all, serving the global entertainment community.”
Jerome Delhaye, Reed Midem’s entertainment division director, said: “Laurine is an exceptional leader with a fantastic grasp of a rapidly evolving entertainment industry. We will miss her and we respect her decision to start on a new adventure outside Reed Midem.”
