Febrero 2015 Po Vernis is the new Marketing Director of DePlaneta Group

Febrero 15 Po Vernis has been appointed as Marketing Director of the DeAPlaneta Group, a fiction (DeAPlaneta Cine) and animation company (Planeta Junior), with the objective of maximising the synergies between both divisions of the Group and to provide a joint strategy for all the Planeta Junior countries.

This reinforcement in the Planeta Junior marketing area is the result of the growing interaction between DeAPlaneta Groups production and marketing of entertainment contents. The increased international presence of Planeta Junior following the companys expansion in Turkey and Eastern Europe, the incorporation of the DreamWorks portfolio, as well as the start-up of new productions, require an enhanced synchronisation of the marketing strategy.
