Endemol Shine Group President Tim Hincks to Step Down

Executive had been with company for 17 years

Tim Hincks is departing his role as president of Endemol Shine Group.

A 17-year veteran of the production company, Hincks will step down officially later this year.

“The last 17 years have been an incredible and exhilarating ride,” Hincks said in a statement. “Playing my part in helping build a world class content creation company across so many countries, genres and platforms has been an honour and a privilege. And working with unrivaled creative teams across the world has been a quite ridiculous amount of fun. But it really is time for a new adventure.”

Hincks joined Endemol in 1999 after nine years working on nonfiction programming for the BBC. He became president of Endemol Group in 2012 and retained that position when the company merged with Shine Group in 2014.

An announcement naming Hincks’ replacement is pending.

“The role Tim has played in the success of the business has simply been exceptional,” Endemol Shine Group CEO Sophie Turner Laing said in a statement. “Throughout his time at the company he has combined outstanding creative leadership with a keen entrepreneurial spirit, not to mention a brilliant sense of humour and fun.”
