Charles Courcier has been named Xilam head of digital production, arriving from Millimages subsidiary Amuse, where he held the same post, growing the division from three to 70 people.

During his four years at Amuse, Courcier also helped its content clock up more than 600 million monthly views across multiple platforms. Before that, he held positions at Gaumont Animation and Sacrebleu Productions.

Xilam already has a substantial digital presence and counts 10 million subscribers across its YouTube channels. It recently launched a dedicated presence for preschool series Paprika and one for Oggy & the Cockroaches in India, which has already amassed 600,000 subscribers and more than 150 million views.

In addition to growing the studio’s presence across AVoD platforms, Courcier will also develop animated web series targeted at adult audiences. He is based in Xilam’s head office in Paris and reports to exec VP of global sales development Morgann Favennec.
