Guillaume de Posch, who has led company since 2012, to leave his position on 1 January 2018.

Luxembourg-headquartered RTL Group's co-chief executive will step down from his role at the helm of the company.

Guillaume de Posch, who has led the company since 2012, will leave his position on 1 January 2018, according to a statement from the broadcaster.

He will continue to serve as a non-executive member of RTL's board of directors.

Bert Habets, who has been co-CEO since 19 April, will now lead the group as sole CEO.

He will have overall responsibility for the strategy and day-to-day management of the group.

De Posch said it was the "right time" to hand over to Habets, who was previously CEO of RTL Nederland.

Elmar Heggen will remain CFO at RTL Group and become the group's deputy CEO.
