Paramount Pictures Germany announced today it has upped marketing director Florian Ritter and sales director Tobias Riehl to co-managing directors. The duo will oversee the marketing and distribution operations of the German office. Previous managing direcor Sven Sturm will exit his post as a consequence of the restructure.
Ritter and Roehl have both been with Paramount since its standalone German office was launched in 2008 following the shuttering of Universal and Paramount’s joint international operations UPI. Sturm will leave after seven years with the company.
