Martin Kriegerhas been appointed the new CEO of Studio 100 and its subsidiaries Studio 100 Film, m4e and the newly formed Studio Isar Animation (Munich / Germany).

Martin will also be responsible for the global commercial business of Studio 100 International including content distribution, licensing and consumer products for the entire Studio 100 slate and some third-party IPs.

“We are delighted to appoint Martin as CEO for Studio 100 Media, we have great faith in his ability to lead due to his already impressive accomplishments within our Studio 100 Group, “ says Hans Bourlon, co-founder and CEO of Studio 100 Group. “I trust him to successfully steer the company during this new phase and perform an essential management role in our newly formed international leadership team.”

Martin brings years of experience in media and marketing to the role, having most recently led global content distribution at Studio 100 and established its international YouTube business. Prior to that he worked for The Walt Disney Company in various marketing roles and most recently was responsible for content partnerships at YouTube.

Martin says: “I am grateful and honored by the trust placed in me. It makes me happy to return to Studio 100, its amazing team and to contribute to the group’s growth in this new role. My leadership will be based on fostering inclusion and diversity to further develop our strong culture.

The appointment of Martin Krieger follows the announcement of Barbara Stephen as Content CEO for Studio 100 International earlier this year, as the company continues to push forward with its global expansion strategy.

Barabara adds: “Martin and I established an excellent working relationship during his time as Head of Global Distribution and I’m thrilled to be collaborating with him in our new international leadership team working on Studio 100’s global expansion.”
