WarnerMedia rejigs HBO Europe as CEO Hervé Payan replaced by Christina Sulebakk
WarnerMedia’s ongoing restructure has continued with the exit of HBO Europe CEO Hervé Payan and the appointment of Christina Sulebakk to take on his remit.
Sulebakk will become GM of HBO Europe and lead the linear networks and streaming service across the continent, effective immediately. She reports into Priya Dogra, who was appointed president of WarnerMedia Entertainment Networks for EMEA and APAC earlier this week.
Sulebakk replaces Payan, who had served as CEO of HBO Europe for eight years and who will be leaving the company at the end of August.
The exec has been at HBO Europe for over eight years, most recently serving as EVP, CMO & head of distribution.
She has previously worked for the company in Madrid, Budapest and New York, playing a key role in expanding its streaming operations in Central Europe and launching HBO España.
