Turner EMEA president takes key WarnerMedia role

Giorgio Stock named president, WarnerMedia Entertainment Networks, Distribution & Advertising Sales, EMEA & APAC.

Former Turner EMEA president, Giorgio Stock has taken on a key role within WarnerMedia Entertainment Networks.

Giorgio (pictured) has been named president of WarnerMedia Entertainment Networks, Distribution and Advertising Sales, EMEA and APAC.

He takes on responsibility for all entertainment networks, distribution of all networks, advertising sales and the kids networks operations in Europe, Middle East, Africa and the Asia Pacific region. He will continue to report into Gerhard Zeiler, WarnerMedia’s chief revenue officer.

Giorgio will be supported by the leadership team of Ricky Ow, president Turner Asia Pacific; Hervé Payan, ceo of HBO Europe; and Jonathan Spink, ceo of HBO Asia, all of whom now report into him. He continues to be based in London.

The appointment is part of Gerhard’s decision to give the new operation a focused leadership which harnesses the existing strengths of the Turner and HBO businesses, while also equipping them for further collaboration and growth.

“In an increasingly disrupted marketplace, we are uniquely positioned to evolve and further scale our truly exceptional brands and content destinations and to engage and entertain our audiences like never before,” said Giorgio. “It is a privilege to assemble the hugely talented teams across our regions and take our business to the next level.”
