SPE Networks Asia expands with new hires, promotions

He established and strengthened the AXN brand, met the group's target revenue and maintained its 99 per cent market penetration in the country. Besides being a key player in the successful launch of Animax Taiwan in 2004, he also developed and oversaw the sponsorship of local production Taiwan AXN Xtreme, which was held in Taipei in 2003 and 2004.

While from programming in AXN Taiwan former programming manager Taiyi Liu will lead the programming of AXN and Animax in her new position as senior programming manager. Having joined AXN Taiwan since 2000, Liu has contributed to AXN's viewership growth with excellent programming strategies that meet Taiwan viewers' needs.

On the operations front at the company's headquarters in Singapore, Simon Wong has been promoted to the position of director operations from his previous position as associate director operations. Since joining SPE Networks Asia in 2000, Wong has demonstrated leadership skills in the operations department and he was one of the key people who contributed to the launch of Animax in 2004. He has facilitated the restructuring and running of network presentation, content services and post production for both channels; designed and rebuilt the post production facility of the company.

Eric Tan, previously the account director advertising sales, has been promoted to senior account director. Having moved from the print media industry in 1999, Tan successfully grew the company's client base and built the advertising sales network. He was a key figure in the advertising sales team, which persevered to break new grounds in increasing the channels' advertising revenue.

The AXN marketing team too has gained three promotions. AXN marketing manager Tay Ying Hui, who looked after the East Asian countries including Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, Philippines, Thailand and Hong Kong, has been promoted as senior marketing executive. Hui was instrumental in executing and overseeing the marketing communications of AXN since 2002 and led the brand team since January 2005. She has been a contributing factor in organising and executing five out of the seven AXN Challenges held in Singapore, Malaysia, Philippines and Hong Kong.
