FremantleMedia has further reshuffled its Asian operations, naming FremantleMedia Australia exec Paul O’Hanlon as its new MD for Asia.

O’Hanlon has been promoted to the role after most recently serving as executive producer for production and development with FremantleMedia Australia. He will start the new role next month and be based in Singapore.

The news comes after Fremantle promoted Ian Hogg, then CEO of FremantleMedia Australia, to the newly created position of CEO for Asia Pacific in July. O’Hanlon will report to Hogg, and will be responsible for the business performance of FremantleMedia’s production operations in Asia.

“FremantleMedia has a thriving business in Asia with more than 45 local formats in production this year alone,” said Hogg. “Paul will oversee the current production slate as well as driving new business, creatively and commercially, across Asia.

“He has an intuitive understanding of the region with extensive experience and great success in both management and production.”

Prior to joining FremantleMedia Australia in February this year, O’Hanlon was international adviser and program director with Next TV in Taiwan, responsible for the strategic programming development for the launch of a new television platform.
