Humanoids Names Matthieu Coppet as Group Chief Operating Officer
Humanoids has announced today the appointment of Matthieu Coppet as its Group Chief Operating Officer. In this newly created position, Coppet will work directly with Humanoids’ CEO Fabrice Giger to scale the company’s operations. Humanoids recently secured a multimillion-dollar development fund with a strategic partner for the production of film and television content based on Humanoids’ vast IP catalog.
Coppet will supervise the operations of Humanoids’ headquarters in Los Angeles, including overseeing the launching of new business lines, as well as that of the branches in Paris (France) and Tokyo, and across Humanoids’ portfolio of imprints and brands. Humanoids’ catalog spans a varied collection of genres—including science-fiction, thriller, comedy, horror, fantasy, action, adventure, children’s, and more. The company has published some of the most talented and celebrated artists and writers in comics, including Alejandro Jodorowsky, Mœbius, John Cassaday, José Ladrönn, Juan Giménez, and Naoki Urasawa.
In 2019 Coppet got a first hand experience in the gaming industry as a Chief Strategy Officer of Wonder, a game platform startup that was acquired recently by Atari. Before that, Coppet was Executive Vice President, Corporate Strategy for Legendary Entertainment. In this role, Coppet was responsible for targeting and assessing strategic opportunities on a global basis and in advancing such initiatives, including acquiring and growing new divisions. Matthieu joined Legendary in 2010 from UBS where he served as Global Media Strategist overseeing the firm global media equity research practice.
