Rod Henwood, CEO of Banijay Group in the UK, Belgium and Netherlands, is to step down later this year.

His departure comes after the merger of Banijay Group and Zodiak Media earlier in the year.
Henwood oversees Banijay’s  UK  indies RDF, IWC, Touchpaper Television, Bwark, Comedy Unit as well as Zodiak Belgium and Zodiak Netherlands. He also oversees Sol, the Group’s Mumbai-based production company.

Marco Bassetti, Group CEO of Banijay, said: “I have enjoyed working with Rod since the merger and we have been discussing collaboratively over the summer how best to organise our activities, given the Group’s corporate location and Rod’s own aspirations. In reaching our amicable conclusion to part company, I want to thank him for his significant contribution to both Zodiak and Banijay and he leaves with our best wishes for the future.”
Henwood said: “Now that the merger has been concluded and bedded down, and that the business is trading well within a Group whose corporate centre is in Paris, it makes sense from all our perspectives to make a change. I have very much enjoyed my time at every stage with Zodiak and Banijay.”
He will continue in his current role until the end of November and Banijay Group says it will shortly announce the organizational changes that will follow Henwood’s departure.
