London, October 1, 2020 – WarnerMedia, a division of AT&T Inc., has today announced its international leadership team, led by Gerhard Zeiler, Head of WarnerMedia International.
In Latin America, Whit Richardson will continue to lead the networks business, adding the Warner Bros. activities in the region to his remit.
Priya Dogra will continue to lead the networks businesses in EMEA and Asia (except for China). She will also take on responsibility for the Warner Bros. businesses in each of those territories.
Adam Presser, who has worked for many years in Warner Bros.’ international operations from Burbank, will take on responsibility for the company’s businesses in China, Australia and New Zealand. Adam will also act as liaison officer to the Studios & Network and Commercial organizations in the U.S. representing WarnerMedia International in various interactions.
Also joining Zeiler’s leadership team are Robert Blair who will continue to lead the international licensing business and Ronald Goes who will continue to lead the Warner Bros. International TV production arm.
WarnerMedia International will see most territories become part of a country management-led organization, with strong functional leaders in certain areas. It will also work very closely with all other parts of the wider business, particularly commercial, theatrical, programming, franchise management and consumer products as well as working closely with Johannes Larcher, Head of HBO Max International, and his team to roll out HBO Max, as the direct to consumer business grows and launches in new territories.
Gerhard Zeiler said: “This new structure, where we have a real geographical focus, will allow us to effectively benefit from all of our local activities to optimize our growth, whilst also responding to changing consumer habits, serving our customers more effectively and building stronger relationships with our various local partners. I couldn’t be more excited about the future of the company. With Adam, Priya, Robert, Ronald and Whit forming my senior leadership group, we can now move forward as one team, act as one team, and win as one team.”
