Vincent Chalvon-Demersay:” I would like to thank all the Marathon Media teams and my friends at Zodiak Media for their support and trust during these 14 years. I entirely trust Marc-Antoine d’Halluin to make the right decisions to continue my action. I remain employed by the Zodiak group in Los Angeles for a long enough time to ensure the best possible transition.”
Marc-Antoine d’Halluin: “I would like to thank Vincent Chalvon-Demersay for his great contribution to Zodiak’s reputation and to that of world class European animation. I wish him the best on his future challenges.”
