Philip Alberdingk Thijm leaves Keesing Media Group
The Executive Board of TMG and Philip Alberdingk Thijm, CEO of Keesing Media Group (KMG) have agreed in close consultation for Philip to leave the organisation as per 1 January 2017. Philip has performed the role of CEO for KMG since June 2014 after his previous position as the CEO of Sky Radio Group.
In addition to geographic growth, expanding Keesing’s operations from seven to twelve countries, Keesing has grown by developing new product-market combinations. The significant increase in the number of titles in the children’s segment and the adult colouring books segment are successful examples. Among others, Philip realised a participation for Keesing in one of the top three players in the important English puzzle market.
Geert-Jan van der Snoek, CEO TMG: “The Executive Board is extremely grateful to Philip for his leadership and efforts at Keesing Media Group. We wish him all the best in continuing his career.”
