ITV Studios Appoints Hans Engholm As Chief Executive Officer Of Silverback In Sweden

ITV Studios has appointed Hans Engholm as Chief Executive Officer of Silverback, ITV's Scandinavian production company based in Stockholm, Sweden.
Most recently Creative Director at Eyeworks in Stockholm, Engholm will report directly to Kevin Lygo, Managing Director, ITV Studios.
Kevin Lygo said: "A significant part of the on-going ITV Transformation Plan to produce more of our own shows internationally. We are very pleased to welcome Hans to this important role at Silverback. He is highly regarded within Scandinavia for his creative and innovative approach and we're confident he'll make the most of UK success to gain commissions for ITV's formats in the territory. Equally, we look forward to him pitching original formats from Scandinavia back to us in the UK and our studio production network in other parts of the world."
Hans Engholm added: "I am delighted to be joining ITV Studuos just as they are entering a very exciting time for the global business and I look forward to working with the team in Scandinavia to take the most important steps for Silverback."
Engholm has a strong creative and production background in Scandinavia. Together with his business partner, Engholm founded independent production company Produktionsbolaget which focused on gala productions and big events. They sold the business to Eyeworks in 2005 becoming Creative Director and overseeing productions such as the Swedish versions of Who Wants To Be A Millionaire and Bingolotto; as well as successfully developing original formats such as Know it All and A Fight Against Death and launching a drama division in 2009. He was formerly Head of Entertainment at Meter Films & TV in Stockholm and Head of TV Business at GE Television in Gothenburg. Prior to this, he was executive producer and then director of the entertainment department at TV4 in Sweden.
Veronica Sundin who has been acting Chief Executive Officer at Silverback will revert to her previous position of Chief Operating Officer when Hans Engholm joins the company.
