Endemol's long-serving chief creative officer Paul R?mer is stepping down, as part of the Big Brother producer's latest boardroom reshuffle.
Endemol's president Marco Bassetti, Endemol UK's CEO Tim Hincks and David Goldberg, chairman of Endemol North America, will now sit on a new 'Creative Board' overseeing all global creative development at the superindie.
Additionally, executive director of creative support Iris Boelhouwer has been promoted to MD of creative operations worldwide.
Endemol CEO Ynon Kreiz said the new board would offer support to its local production hubs and seek to sychronise activities.
R?mer, best known for developing the Big Brother format with John de Mol and exec producing the orginial Dutch version, leaves the company after 15 years to "pursue other opportunities," according to Endemol.
He held roles including MD of Endemol Netherlands and became global head of programming in January 2009, becoming CCO later in the year.
Kreiz said: "Paul is one of the company’s longest-serving executives. He has had an outstanding track record at Endemol and has made an invaluable creative and commercial contribution to the business in a range of key senior roles. We are extremely grateful for all he has done and wish him all the very best for the future."
R?mer added: "During my time here there has been a complete transformation of the TV and digital media landscape, and Endemol has played a central role in that. Now, after 15 incredible years, the time feels right for me to move on to new challenges."
His departure follows a major shake-up of Endemol's French operations earlier this month after MD Yves Bigot quit. The company also appointed a new MD for the Middle East after Ziad Kebbi stepped down.
Earlier in the year, head of digital media and new business Adam Valkin left along with UK digital chief Peter Cowley. Global head of marketing and former Reed Midem director of TV Paul Johnson exited in December after less than a year in the job.
