BBC Worldwide strengthens south Asian sales team

MUMBAI: BBC Worldwide has promoted Sunil Joshi to head of distribution for BBC Global News in south Asia, and appointed Stanley Fernandes as sales director for south Asia.

Joshi was elevated from his prior role of heading up distribution for the north and western India. In his new role, he will oversee the distribution sales of BBC Global News' content, including television, online and mobile productions.

Both will be based in Mumbai and report to Myleeta Aga, SVP and general manager for India and content head for Asia.

Joshi will partner with Sirsendu Chakravarty, who handles the eastern region; Hemang Pathak, who handles the west; Sethuraman Sathyanarayanan, for the southern region as well as digital; and Sandra Fernandes, for corporate.

In Fernandes' new role, he will build and lead BBC Worldwide's television content sales to linear channels and digital platforms in India and the subcontinent. Previously, he was the senior manager at Disney Media Distribution.

"Sunil has a great depth of relationships in the distribution network and wealth of insights that will help contribute to our next phase of growth in south Asia," said Aga. "Stanley has joined us at a very important time as we move into the new regional structure with strong market focus."
