Jaap Bruijnen, current deputy managing director, Benelux, will serve as managing director of Warner Home Video Benelux, effective May 1, 2008. Ruud Lamers, the current managing director, said he will leave the company at the end of April.
“Jaap exemplifies the qualities and talents of a world-class managing director and I fully support his appointment to this integral position,” said Ron Sanders, president, Warner Home Video.
Bruijnen and Lamers worked closely to make the studio the first to deliver download-to-own movies day-and-date with the sale of the DVD. Bruijnen also led the integration of Warner Home Video's finance and corporate finance groups in Benelux, the economic union made up of Belgium, the Netherlands and Luxembourg.
