Paul Johnson to leave Reed Midem

Paul Johnson, Television Division Director at Reed Midem, the Paris-based organiser of international exhibitions and conferences such as the MipCom and MipTV, is leaving the company mid-March 2009 for a new career opportunity.

Johnson was appointed Reed Midem’s Television Division Director in April 2003, and was responsible for the company’s events such as MIPTV, MIPCOM, MIPDOC and MIPJunior events.

Laurine Garaude, Reed Midem’s Director of Customer Relationship Marketing and Product Development, and former Director of the interactive content marketplace, MILIA, would head the Television Division until a new Director is named. Garaude is a 15-year veteran with Reed MIDEM.

In a prepared statement, Paul Zilk, CEO, Reed Midem, said, “Paul leaves our television division in excellent condition. Over the past six years, his enthusiasm and knowledge of the entertainment industry have helped broaden the client base at our television events to include new players in digital content, mobile telephony, advertising and licensing, and attendance at the markets has grown steadily. He oversaw the launch of the MIPTV Content 360 initiative, the introduction of the International Digital Emmy Awards and the digitisation of screenings at MIPDOC and MIPJunior. We wish Paul the very best in his new position.”
