MP & Silva executes new management structure

The board of MP & Silva has appointed a new executive management structure that it claims will allow the company to "continue developing its leadership in the sports industry."

Marco Auletta has been appointed as chief executive officer (CEO) of the company as Peter Hutton, joint chief executive officer, returns to the broadcasting industry in the coming year. During his tenure, Hutton gave the board strategic advice and worked in various successful projects across the globe. Konstantinos Filippas joins the group as managing director, Europe, and will supervise European operations and manage the company's Europe sales team.

Auletta said that this "marks another step in MP & Silva’s evolution" where the company has continued to "extend the reach of [its] sports partners globally". He further said that MP & Silva looks to continue "growing [its] team of international experts with local knowledge" that is the key of its strategy and success.

Meanwhile Robert Dalmiglio, currently the group commercial director, will be appointed as chief commercial officer (CCO) with overall responsibility for the execution of the company’s strategic priorities and commercial plans globally.

Dalmiglio will be supported by Roland Nikolaou, vice president of global sales, and also by Jeroen Oerlemans, vice president of global acquisitions. Oerlemans previously worked at ESPN UK whilst Filippas was the former vice president, content, at OTE Greece. Prior to this, Nikolaou was already a member of the MP & Silva sales team.
