Namiech Joins Target, Rayson Steps Down
Target Entertainment announced last week a key change to its management team as founder Alison Rayson steps down from her position as CEO and hires a new managing director, Emmanuelle Namiech.
Rayson is leaving the company after 13 years to explore new ventures. The company was sold last year to Metrodome Group. Rayson has worked closely with Metrodome’s chairman and CEO Mark Webster to bring in a managing director with the skills and experience to continue Target’s growth both in the UK and internationally.
Namiech will join Target in November. Recently, she was senior vice-president of global content at Fremantle Media Enterprises and prior to that was director of acquisitions and co-productions at ITV global entertainment.
She will work with Mark Webster and the management team at Target to expand the company’s core business of international rights management.
