Christine Fellowes has been named as managing director, Asia Pacific, Universal Networks International following the merger of NBC Universal and Comcast.
The appointment means that Universal Networks International’s Asia Pacific managing director Raymund Miranda will leave the company.
Fellowes, who was previously MD, Asia Pacific, Comcast International Media Group, will be in charge of the company’s bouquet of channels, which includes Universal Channel, Syfy Universal, 13th St Universal, Diva Universal, E! Entertainment, The Style Network and The Golf Channel. She will be based in Singapore.
“We are delighted to appoint Christine to lead our combined pay TV channels business in the Asia Pacific region. As one of the most highly respected and talented regional executives, she will bring a unique and compelling vision that will be vital to driving our integrated growth strategy,” said Belinda Menendez, president, Universal Networks International and TV Distribution.
