Company Announcement
Management team changes
MTG today appointed Peter Nørrelund as Executive Vice President and CEO of
MTG
Sport, and Gabriel Catrina as Chief Strategy Officer. Joseph Hundah
has
meanwhile left his position as Executive Vice President and CEO of MTG
Africa.
Peter Nørrelund, a former Editor in Chief at Danish public service
broadcaster
DR, joined MTG in 2003 and rose to become MTG Head of Sport in
2013. Peter is
responsible for MTG’s global sports organisation of 200+ people
that acquires
rights for MTG’s online and offline platforms across multiple
territories; runs
the technical play-out of MTG’s sports channels; and produces
the local language
commentary and programming around coverage of events
including the Olympics,
UEFA Champions League, English Premier League, Danish
Superliga, Formula One,
the NHL and NFL.

Gabriel Catrina joined MTG in 2013 as
Head of Group Strategy, and has worked
closely with the Group’s operating
businesses. Gabriel was previously Head of
the Media, Communications and
Technology Practice for management consulting firm
Booz & Company in the
Nordics, where he spent 8 years advising leading companies
globally on
strategy, innovation and operations. Gabriel was also CFO and COO
of
Argentinian digital education company Educ.ar, and VP of Business
Development
(Europe & Latin America) for US-based telecommunications software
company TCS.

Joseph Hundah joined MTG in 2011 as CEO of MTG’s African
operations and has been
an MTG EVP since November 2012. MTG EVP Jette
Nygaard-Andersen now takes on
responsibility for MTG’s African operations,
which comprise free-TV channels
Viasat1 Ghana and TV1 in Tanzania, as well as
Modern African Productions.

“Peter has done a great job building up an
unrivalled sports portfolio for our
channels and platforms around the world.
Not only do we have rights to the top
global franchises but also very strong
local editorial offerings. This step up
in the organization reflects how
central sports is to our consumer product
offering.

Gabriel has substantially
enhanced our strategy work and been instrumental in
our strategic
transformation. This new role reflects the importance of dedicated
strategic
thinking and planning to the future of MTG as a leading global digital
video
entertainment business.

Joseph leaves with our thanks for his contribution to
the development of our
African business and our best wishes for the
future.”

Jørgen Madsen Lindemann, President & CEO
