Gerhartz, who was previously senior VP of global sales at Red Arrow Studios International and is based in the company’s Munich office, reports to Martin Metzger, chief business affairs and commercial officer at Red Arrow Studios.

He will be responsible for leading the company’s development, acquisitions, sales and marketing teams and takes over from Denton, acting president of Red Arrow Studios International.

Denton returned to Red Arrow in June last year to lead the sales arm on an acting basis following the news Bo Stehmeier was returning to European producer and distributor Off The Fence. Denton will stay on at Red Arrow Studios International until June to ensure a smooth handover.

Gerhartz first joined Red Arrow Studios International from ZDF Enterprises, the commercial arm of German pubcaster ZDF, in 2012.

Responsible for the UK, Nordic, Benelux and Italian markets, he held the position of VP of sales and acquisitions. In 2016, he moved to international music licensing agency Audio Network as head of sales and business development for Germany, Austria and Switzerland. In 2019, Gerhartz re-joined Red Arrow in 2019 as senior VP of global sales.

Metzger said: “I’m delighted that Tim has accepted the role of managing director, Red Arrow Studios International. His wealth of experience, coupled with his enthusiasm for the business, first-class client relationships, talent for building excellent teams, and of course his in-depth knowledge of Red Arrow Studios International, makes him the ideal executive for the job.”

Gerhartz added: “I’m very proud of the fantastic team at Red Arrow and our impressive slate of internationally successful dramas, formats and factual content. I’m really looking forward to working closely with my colleagues and our outstanding global network of producers – both in-house and third-party – to bring more of the bold, distinctive and successful content Red Arrow Studios International is well known to our many broadcaster clients around the world.”

Red Arrow Studios International coproduces, finances and distributes scripted, formats and factual titles around the world, from a network of inhouse and third-party producers.

Key titles include returning premium dramas Bosch, Vienna Blood and Departure, format Married at First Sight, and The Weekly: Special Edition collection of event documentaries, which includes Framing Britney Spears.
