We think it is now time to capitalize on the synergy potential by appointing Rémi Chasles as their CEO.” He added: “On behalf of Euro Media Group, I salute the work accomplished by Gilles Chasson throughout the last 2.5 years as CEO of Netco Sports.This integration is part of a continuing product strategy which consists of adding new digital services working in tandem with existing broadcast services, and implementing them in connected media centers. We wish Rémi Chasles all the best in his new role aimed at developing this strategy for our Group. We are confident his experience in product development will be instrumental in the creation of a common product strategy for both On Rewind and Netco Sports.”
Rémi Chasles, 33, joined Euro Media Group in 2017 after On Rewind’s acquisition by EMG. He co-founded On Rewind in 2015 after two years of research & product development. Chasles has a strong expertise in product engineering, new technologies, and a true passion for developing innovative companies.
“I am very much looking forward to stepping up to drive the digital services of Euro Media Group further”, said Chasles. “I am confident that the association of Netco Sports’ skills in IT development together with On Rewind's OTT products is absolutely key to enabling us to address the growing demand of the OTT market. Both companies already complement each other very well and I hope to establish even more successful synergies between them.”
