Jan Peter Kerstens (49) is well respected in the international television industry as a result of his 10 years at Endemol, where in his lastest role he was CFO of the Endemol Group from 2005 to 2010. During that period, Endemol’s revenue grew to over € 1 billion and he successfully guided the company through difficult market conditions and important events in the company’s history. Under his leadership as CFO, Endemol went public in 2005 as well as the sale of Endemol NV to its current shareholders in 2007. This past year he was the CFO of Metalcorp Group. Beginning 1 April 2012, the Board of Eyeworks will consist of Reinout Oerlemans (CEO), Ronald Wechem (Managing Director), Robert van den Bogaard (COO / Head of Television) and Jan Peter Kerstens (CFO).
Reinout Oerlemans, CEO and founder of Eyeworks concerning the appointment of Jan Peter Kerstens: ‘A CFO with so much experience in our industry is unique and therefore we think that Jan Peter is the perfect man for the new growth phase in which we now find ourselves with Eyeworks. Under the financial leadership of his predecessor, Peter Rademaker, Eyeworks realized its best financial performance in its history in 2010 and we have continued on that path in 2011 with another year of significant growth. We thank Peter Rademaker for his contribution and wish him all the best in his new position with CMI. Our management team is complete, we are therefore secure both creatively and financially. Eyeworks is only ten years old and full of ambition. The best is yet to come.’
Jan Peter Kerstens: ‘After working ten years in a large international television production company, I must confess that I am wedded to the creative industry. When Eyeworks approached me I had an immediate good feeling which only got stronger the more conversations that I had with my new colleagues. Eyeworks has a unique position in the international television production industry. This sector is developing in a time where video entertainment for consumers and advertisers is becomng increasingly more important. There awaits us a great challenge.’
