Michael Butow Joins German Production Group H+V Entertainment

Takes over from Philip Voges as co-managing director.


COLOGNE, Germany -- Michael Butow will step into the gap left by Philip Voges and take over as co-managing director in German production group H+V Entertainment, formerly Hofmann & Voges Entertainment.

Butow will move from his current job as head of Eastern European production at ProSiebenSat.1 to H+V in January. He joins H+V boss Mischa Hofmann.

Both men studied together at the HFF film school in Munich and have worked together on TV productions in the past.

Earlier this year, Philip Voges left the company he founded with Hofmann to set up a new production shingle, Chestnut Films.
