WarnerMedia names EMEA, APAC chief
WarnerMedia has promoted Priya Dogra to a new role overseeing its entertainment networks in Europe, the Middle East, Africa and Asia Pacific.
Dogra has been named president of WarnerMedia Entertainment Networks EMEA and APAC. She will retain her current responsibilities as exec VP of strategy and corporate development for WarnerMedia for the time being, the company said today.
Dogra is taking on responsibilities from Giorgio Stock, who stepped down at the end of June, and will report to Gerhard Zeiler, chief revenue officer WarnerMedia and president of WarnerMedia International Networks.
In her new role, Dogra will have executive oversight and responsibility for programming, advertising, distribution and operations of the WarnerMedia Entertainment Networks, which include the basic Turner and premium HBO networks in Europe, the Middle East, Africa and the Asia-Pacific region.
She will share responsibility for the kids’ business in EMEA and APAC with Tom Ascheim who was recently named president of global kids, young adults and classics at Warner Bros.
Zeiler said: “Priya is a world-class executive who has been driving WarnerMedia’s overall corporate growth initiatives and in particular our direct-to-consumer strategy internationally. Her leadership, passion and knowledge of our international businesses will make an immediate impact on our organisation. She is a great addition to my leadership team and to our EMEA and APAC businesses.”
Dogra added: “I am excited to take on this role particularly now as we refocus our efforts to connect our beloved brands and high-quality content directly with consumers around the world. I look forward to working closely with Gerhard, our broader leadership team and the EMEA and APAC organisations to strategically position us for continued success in a highly competitive marketplace.”
Dogra has been with the company since 2009. Prior to her current role she was the head of mergers and acquisitions for Time Warner. Prior to joining Time Warner, Dogra was a VP in the Technology, Media and Telecom Investment Banking Group at Citigroup.
