The general manager of the Technicolor India animation studio has been named Country Head for all of Technicolor.
Biren Ghose will retain his duties as general manager of Technicolor India as he assumes the larger role, one of several new country head positions within the company.
The role will see Biren join the Technicolor Senior Leadership Team. His first priority will be to drive an in-country ‘one company’ approach toward employees, local customers and support function structures.
‘We are extremely pleased that Biren has taken up this challenge and that he will continue to use his considerable personal profile to spearhead Technicolor’s ever-expanding efforts in India,’ stated Frederic Rose, CEO of Technicolor. ‘India is a key growth region for Technicolor, currently a centre for our animation and games industries, it already serves as the creative hub for our dedicated DreamWorks and Nickelodeon teams and is the future home for Technicolor’s IP animation production.’
Since his appointment to Technicolor in 2009, Biren has brought a wealth of knowledge to the company from his long experience in the Indian entertainment industry.
