Based in the UK, van der Wal has held the role for over a year, before which he spent five years at the company’s subsidiary Turner Broadcasting System.

“Having made the decision to move our family to Amsterdam almost a year ago, we have had ample time to ensure a smooth transition. I therefore leave with great excitement about WarnerMedia’s future and confidence in the company’s ability to continue to evolve and innovate for years to come,” he said.

Gerhard Zeiler, chief revenue officer at WarnerMedia and president of WarnerMedia International Networks, added: “I’ve had the pleasure of working alongside Aksel for the majority of his time here.

“In that time, Aksel has held a variety of executive positions and, among other achievements, optimised the international technology and operations, integrated HBO and Turner teams, set up our international data platform and the Hatch innovation programme as well as launched new D2C products.”
