Jean-Pierre Barry, founder of Euro Media Group, has passed away

It is with deep sadness that we inform you that Jean-Pierre Barry passed away. Aged 70, Jean-Pierre Barry was the founder of Euro Media Group.

Jean-Pierre Barry marked the history of the television industry in France. In 1983, Jean-Pierre founded Euro Media Television with his wife Chantal and his childhood friend Luc Geoffroy.

After becoming the French market leader through the acquisition of numerous companies, he looked for international growth and created the first truly European Film and TV facilities provider, Euro Media Group, by merging Euro Media Television and UBF Media Group. As an entrepreneur and an iconic figure of audiovisual and TV industry in Europe, Jean-Pierre liked a good living and was an aviation enthusiast. He gave the group a lot with his entrepreneurial skills, his total commitment and his kindness to his workforce. The TV industry loses a great man. All our thoughts go to his wife Chantal, to his children and grandchildren.
