Asia Ireton has returned to the role of general manager of History Japan, a role she previously held from 2001 to 2004.

Ireton will be based in Tokyo, overseeing the channel operations of the joint venture between A+E Networks and Super-Network.

She will report to Alan Hodges, managing director, Asia Pacific for A+E Networks, and Shoji Iwamoto, president of Super Network and representative director for The History Channel Japan.

Previously, Ireton held roles including head of marketing and distribution for Marza Animation Planet, senior marketing positions with Allied Integrated Marketing and Imagi Studios, and was also the editor-in-chief of trade publication Movie/TV Marketing.

“Ms. Ireton’s passion for our content, knowledge of the Japanese media market, and roots on both sides of the Pacific make her uniquely qualified to manage the growth of A+E Networks’ brands in this vital market,” said Hodges.
