Scanbox Entertainment has finalized a restructuring of its senior management team with a series of internal promotions along with a new hire.

Merete Martensen Christensen replaced Kim William Beich as interim Chief Operating Officer (COO). Beich will remain with the company as Head of Acquisitions and Special Projects. Christensen will also maintain his role as Head of Theater in Scandinavia and as Head of Local Theater in Denmark. Christensen has been part of the management group since 2014 and originally joined Scanbox in 2011.

Elsewhere, Per Bergholdt Knudsen has joined Scanbox in the newly created Sales Director and Procurement Manager. He will work closely with Torben Thorup Jørgensen, Chief Commercial Officer (CCO), taking on sales duties and joining the acquisitions team at Scanbox Entertainment. Knudsen is a senior sales and acquisitions executive who started as a film buyer in TV2's acquisitions department and worked there for five years, buying films and series for all TV2 channels. After that, Per joined Nordisk Film in 2011, where he sells films and series to TV stations and streamers across Scandinavia.

The final change in management line-up sees Rasmus Truelsen, a long-time Scanbox employee and former Marketing Manager for Denmark, promoted to Nordic Marketing Manager.

“Scanbox is entering its most significant change in the last decade, and with that comes some big challenges ahead. Our goal is to find the best team to achieve our goals and growth,” said Thor Sigurjonsson, CEO of Scanbox Entertainment. “With the new changes to the internal team and the hiring of Per, we believe we are in a great position to advance these challenges.”

Scanbox Entertainment's slate of upcoming theatrical releases includes international films such as Celine Song's Past lives It is Civil war from the A24, Back to black from Estúdio Canal, and Hitman from AGC Studios. Upcoming local films include Pomegranate by Niclas Bendixen, Inverse by Isabella Eklöf, and The movie counter by Lone Scherfig.
