MUMBAI: The board of MP & Silva has announced a new executive management structure that will enable the company to continue developing its leadership as the fastest growing media rights group in the sports industry.



But, with this announcement has also come the news of MP & Silva joint chief executive officer Peter Hutton leaving the agency to be returning to the broadcasting industry in the New Year. During his tenure Hutton gave the board strategic advice and worked in various successful projects across the globe.



“It’s been a thoroughly enjoyable two years with a remarkable company. I’m sorry to leave some great people in a thriving business, but have decided that after a small break that the time will be right to return to the broadcast industry,” said Hutton.



 “In particular I’d like to thank the MP & Silva board and owners for their backing and vision in my time with the firm and look forward to watching their continued success,” he added.



Commenting on Hutton’s departure, MP & Silva CEO Marco Auletta said, “It’s been a pleasure working with Peter and I wish to thank him for his contributions over the past two years.”



In the new structure, Roberto Dalmiglio, currently group commercial director, has been appointed the chief commercial officer (CCO) with overall responsibility for execution of the company’s strategic priorities and commercial plans globally.



Dalmiglio will be supported by Roland Nikolaou, as vice president of global sales, and by Jeroen Oerlemans, as vice president of global acquisitions.



Konstantinos Filippas has joined the group as managing director, Europe, supervising European operations and managing MP & Silva’s Europe sales team.



Oerlemans was previously at ESPN UK and Filippas was former VP content at OTE Greece, whilst Nikolaou was already a member of the MP & Silva sales team.



Marco Auletta has been made the chief executive officer (CEO) of the company.



This structure reflects the interconnected nature and strategic importance of day-to-day operations, the company’s relationships with its clients and partners, and the international vision of MP & Silva.



“This marks another step in MP & Silva’s evolution. After a very successful year, in which we continued to extend the reach of our sports partners globally, we look to continue growing our team of international experts with local knowledge, which is the key of our strategy and success,” said Auletta.
