Banijay retains Anne Van Sprang as HR lead

Van Sprang reports to CEO Marco Bassetti in her new role.

MUMBAI: Banijay has confirmed that Anne Van Sprang will continue to lead its HR department as chief human resources officer. Based in Paris, she is the group’s global strategic departmental head, consulting on the company’s worldwide structure, operations and employee relations.

Championing best practice, Van Sprang joined Banijay from Kering Group, where for two years, she was at the forefront of devising and implementing the business’ HR strategy, as well as overseeing the HR function for the technology and digital division across its 13-territory footprint. Prior to this, she was human resources director at Canal +, providing full HR support to the technical and IT division thus contributing to the digital transformation of the group. She has also held roles at TDF Group and Carrefour.

A leading HR partner, Van Sprang has spearheaded Banijay’s integration with Endemol Shine Group, supporting chief executive officer, Marco Bassetti, and the global leadership team, in building a footprint comprising the world’s best creative entrepreneurs. Overseeing the department’s worldwide operations, she continues to collaborate with the footprint’s HR partners to combine teams and systems, and drive a joined-up, inclusive and responsible approach. 

Marco Bassetti said, “Shortly after Anne joined us, we embarked on our acquisition of Endemol, and from the start, she has been a key player in the process. Guiding us on the integration and driving the successful merge of these two businesses, she has been an invaluable partner and voice in our biggest move yet. With her help, we are proud to be building one of the world’s most significant and innovative creative engines.”

Anne Van Sprang said, “Talent has and will always be key to Banijay. Our creative community is at the heart of all we do and since the recent acquisition, we can categorically say we have 22 territories brimming with the most inspired minds in the business. And, with a great global HR team by my side, I am confident we can continue to attract, develop and retain the best talent in the content industry while driving new employee initiatives and best practice across our far-reaching operations.”
