Christoph Ott, Senator Entertainment's board member responsible for marketing and sales, is to leave the company "at his own request and by mutual agreement to prepare the founding of his own company".

His responsibilities will now be assumed by Senator CEO Hanno Huth, while the area of world sales has already been taken over by Joe Drake as president of the recently established Senator International, Inc. in Los Angeles. Ott's exit comes after the departure in recent months of Borris Brandt, board member for New Media & Music, and distribution chief Alfred Holighaus.
