Turner Asia Pacific strengthens distribution team

MUMBAI: In a move to strengthen their support to the growing demand in Southeast Asia, Australia and Pacific markets, Turner Asia Pacific has made a few management changes.


As a part of the expansion, Robi Stanton has been promoted to general manager – Australia, New Zealand and Pacific territories. She will oversee all of Turner’s commercial business relationships in these markets including ad sales, content sales and network distribution. 


The move comes on the back of several new brand launches, including the addition of Oh!K and World Heritage Channel to Turner’s portfolio, and the re-launches of Warner TV and Boomerang.


Additionally, Voo Chih Yeong has been appointed as the vice president – Southeast Asia. He will assume responsibility for all affiliate partnerships in key markets such as Singapore, Malaysia and Indonesia. Yeong joins Turner from Sony Pictures Television Networks Asia effective 3 June.


In addition, Vishal Dembla has been promoted to vice president – Hong Kong and Southeast Asia, with a remit that includes Hong Kong, Thailand and Indochina. Dembla recently spearheaded a number of initiatives including the launch of Toonami, Boomerang and Pogo in Thailand, and was part of the team that developed Oh!K, the region’s newest Korean entertainment channel.


“Turner’s rapid expansion across Southeast Asia and the significance of the Australia market has triggered this important change. We work with demanding, world-class partners and they deserve the best team to support their business. I’m confident that our outstanding brands and this new-look, high-caliber team can meet these growing needs,” said Turner managing director and SVP for North Asia and Southeast Asia pacific Phil Nelson.
