StudioCanal has tapped Anna Marsh as its new CEO, replacing Didier Lupfer, who is leaving the company to pursue personal projects in production.

Marsh, who joined StudioCanal in 2008 and most recently served as managing director of StudioCanal UK and executive vp international sales, will report to Maxime Saada, CEO of Canal+ Group and president of StudioCanal.

"Anna is the ideal person to manage StudioCanal after being exec vp distribution and then managing director of our U.K. subsidiary," Saada said Tuesday in a statement. "Her in-depth knowledge of the company and our markets as well as her international profile will be essential to accelerate the development of StudioCanal in its ambition of becoming a leader in the production and distribution of European films and series.”

He added: "I thank Didier for his contribution while heading StudioCanal. Over the past four years, under the leadership of Didier, the company has taken on a new dimension, particularly in production, where he has been directly and successfully involved. We wish him every success in his projects.”

Said Lupfer, "I am very proud of StudioCanal development over the past four years. StudioCanal is now one of the leading content production and distribution companies in Europe and abroad. I warmly thank all the StudioCanal employees for their contribution and their involvement both in France and abroad."
