WarnerMedia has named Priya Dogra as president, WarnerMedia Entertainment Networks, EMEA, and APAC. “Priya is a world-class executive who has been driving WarnerMedia’s overall corporate growth initiatives and in particular our direct-to-consumer-strategy internationally,” said Gerhard Zeiler, Chief Revenue Officer, WarnerMedia and President, WarnerMedia International Networks. “Her leadership, passion, and knowledge of our international businesses will make an immediate impact on our organization.”

Dogra will replace Giorgio Stock who stepped down at the end of June. She will report to Zeiler and executively oversee and be responsible for programming, advertising, distribution, and operations of the WarnerMedia Entertainment Networks which include the basic Turner and premium HBO networks in Europe, the Middle East, Africa, and the Asia-Pacific region.

The streaming strategy executive will be partially responsible for the kids business in EMEA and APAC with Tom Ascheim, who was recently named president, Global Kids, Young Adults and Classics at Warner Bros. “I am excited to take on this role particularly now as we refocus our efforts to connect our beloved brands and high-quality content directly with consumers around the world,” she said. “I look forward to working closely with Gerhard, our broader leadership team, and the EMEA and APAC organizations to strategically position us for continued success in a highly competitive marketplace.”

Dogra has been with the company since 2009. She led the company’s global growth strategies and managed investment and M&A activity to support those strategies. Her promotion occurred a month after WarnerMedia rolled out its new streamer HBO Max across the US, with plans for an imminent expansion into Latin America.
