FRANKFURT, March 8 European broadcast group RTL
said Anke Schaeferkordt would leave her post as
co-chief executive alongside Guillaume de Posch to be replaced
by Bert Habets, currently CEO of RTL's Dutch business.
Schaeferkordt is leaving at her own request and will
continue to be CEO of Mediengruppe RTL Deutschland, the group's
largest business unit, RTL said in a statement on Wednesday.
"Together with her colleagues on the executive committee,
she has succeeded in making RTL Group more digital, more
international and faster growing," said Chairman Thomas Rabe.
"While I regret her decision, I fully respect her reasons,"
he said, without elaborating.
