Tomas Speight has joined Panther Media GmbH as Chief Executive Officer. He will initiate a drive to grow the business into a global presence. Panther Media has a range of initiates relating to clients, international partnerships, as well as new content lines that will be launched in the near future. Further innovations beneficial to both photographers and clients are in the pipeline.

Panther Media GmbH is Germany‘s leading stock photo agency with images from more than 50 million royalty free and right‘s managed images from more than 50,000 photographers.

Speight is well-known in the global stock photo industry for his work at Masterfile where he was instrumental in increasing the company’s global footprint. Before that he led zefa visual media as co-CEO for four years. Prior to joining zefa, Tomas established and managed European operations for The Stock Market Photo Agency.

Tomas will be responsible for Marketing, Sales and Product-Strategy including managing all artist and supplier relationships, as well as international distributor and reseller relationships.
Says Robert Walters co-CEO and founder at Panther Media: "We have developed a lot of technology in recent years and have seen good results in Germany so far, but it's time to take Panther Media to a new level internationally and, with Tomas Speight, we believe we have found the right person to make that happen.
Tomas Speight adds: "I have always thrived in environments where I can build something and that is exactly the opportunity that I have found here. I am confident that the potential of Panther Media even as it stands now, is far greater than the levels of success so far enjoyed. Beside that the company's ability to innovate and think outside of the box attracted me to this challenge.
