On 6 September 2019, the Luxembourg Government Council appointed Paul H. Lorenz as the new Managing Director of the Luxembourg Independent Media Authority (ALIA).

Paul H. Lorenz has extensive experience in the media industry at both national and international level. In 1990 he joined the Luxembourg group CLT as a senior executive, initially responsible for the administration of the group’s television activities and then moving on to develop new markets in Central and Eastern Europe.

In this capacity he provided strategic advice on development and operational issues in the media industry.

“With his thorough knowledge of the media industry, Mr Lorenz will be ideally placed to support the Authority’s efforts and develop the initiatives launched over the past five years. The Board of Directors and the entire ALIA team are delighted at the prospect of working with him. I would also like to thank outgoing Managing Director Romain Kohn for his dedication and commitment in recent years,” said Thierry Hoscheit, Chairman of the Authority’s Board of Directors.

Paul H. Lorenz is set to take office on 15 September 2019. The Managing Director is appointed for a five-year renewable term.
