Marie-Line Petrequin to join the management team of Igelfilm in October
MARIE-LINE PETREQUIN will leave ProSieben and join another German company, IGELFILM as managing director of animation and development in the area of production/co-production of animation. She was previously vice president and head of the animation department at ProSieben Media AG, where she has worked since 1990. At ProSieben she arranged the company's co-production participation in animated series such as "Space Goofs," "Oggy and the Cockroaches" and "Ned's Newt." At Igelfilm starting October 1, she will be responsible for sales and acquisitions of animation programs for the company, which is in the process of becoming public and expanding into the area of animation. Igelfilm's managing director Christian Lehmann said, "Marie-Line Petrequin has excellent international connections which will help us to expand rapidly into new fields of the media business, now that the company is going public. All the more so because the future of animation in Germany in the coming years will be increasingly determined by distribution companies and investors."
