TVA Group announced that the company leader, who expanded the business while launching a virtual production platform service during the pandemic, is leaving his position to pursue new challenges; existing executive team will establish a leadership transition plan and ensure continuity in company’s business activities.
After three years at the helm, MELS’ president Martin Carrier, is stepping down from his position on March 24 to pursue new challenges. The announcement was made by TVA Group with Pierre Karl Péladeau, President and Chief Executive Officer of Quebecor, thanking Carrier for his contribution to the company.
In addition to his role in developing MELS’ business, Carrier launched a virtual production platform during the pandemic to offer local and foreign productions new creative possibilities.
“I leave with the knowledge that MELS is on the right track,” said Carrier. “During my tenure, I have had the opportunity to take on major challenges with highly skilled professionals, to get through a pandemic, and to make a major technological shift towards virtual production. I leave behind me a strong management team in which I have full confidence to ensure MELS’ future success.”
The current management team will be establishing a leadership transition plan and ensure continuity in all of MELS’ areas of activity as follows: Frédéric Boucher for equipment rental, Julie Brabant for production mobiles and generators, Geneviève Brodeur for soundstages, Richard Cormier for virtual production and advertising, and Marie-Christine Jean for post-production.
