Morten Mogensen takes on the new post following a six-year stint as programming chief in Denmark.
He joined MTG in 2005 as commissioning editor, before becoming head of in-house/own productions two years later and programme director a year after.
In his new role, he reports to MTG’s executive VP of Scandinavian free TV and radio operations Anders Jensen.
“Morten has done a great job in Denmark and I am confident he will bring great value across our Scandinavian operations,” said Jensen. We operate in very competitive markets where some of the world’s best content is created and produced. The appointment of Morten will guarantee that we are a truly great partner and that we drive and plan our needs for the best content.”
