Shondaland names Megha Tolia president and COO


Shondaland has appointed Megha Tolia as the company’s first president and COO.

In this newly created role, Tolia will oversee company operations, including strategic planning and finance at the US-based Bridgerton prodco, which was founded in 2005 by Shonda Rhimes, to whom she will report.

Before joining Shondaland, Tolia served as VP of e-commerce and strategy on the management team of US cosmetics and cleaning supplies multinational SC Johnson’s lifestyle unit.

In that role, she oversaw brands including Method, Mrs. Meyers and Babyganics, and she previously worked as a brand manager for Neutrogena as brand manager.

Shondaland is currently under a deal with Netflix, which was extended earlier this year, with Rhimes currently working on the second season of Bridgerton, as well as spin-off Queen Charlotte and Inventing Anna for the streamer.

“Over the past few years, Shondaland has expanded into many new business areas while simultaneously growing the number of people working in each of our departments,” commented Rhimes.

“Megha brings with her invaluable knowledge and experience to help Shondaland continue to successfully manage this growth while identifying new business opportunities and endeavors for the company.”
