Christensen confirmed as Metronome MD

Endemol Shine Group-backed Danish label Metronome Productions has confirmed Tina Christensen as its permanent MD.

Tina Christensen

Christensen joined Metronome in 2006 and before that worked for 11 years with the Danish broadcaster SBS TV as its head of planning and head of production.

She then held similar roles at Metronome before being named chief operating officer in 2013. She became acting MD in June last year after former MD Kent Nikolajsen left on sick leave and remained until he died in January. He had held the role since 2013.

Karin Stjärne, CEO of Endemol Shine Nordics, described Christensen as “a very gifted leader who has been a rock these last 10 months, leading the Danish team through a very difficult time following the death of our beloved colleague Kent.

“She is ideally placed to lead our team of 150 great colleagues in Denmark and I look forward to working closely with her in the coming years.”

Christensen, who formally took on the role on February 1, added: “I’m honoured and excited to be formally appointed MD of Metronome Productions as we continue to deliver outstanding production value to our clients and audiences, while never compromising our company culture and human values.

“I always believed Kent and I would be partners forever at this fantastic company. While I miss him by my side, I have great faith in the strong organisation we have built and that, together with my dedicated management team, we are on a solid footing to tackle the challenges and opportunities our new media reality is presenting to us.

“I now look forward to continue my partnership with Karin and together to strategically develop and grow our business further in the thriving Nordic region.”
