Lifestyle media company Scripps Networks Interactive has made some leadership changes at its Warsaw-based station TVN as it looks to continue to grow its business outside the U.S. market.

Chair, president and CEO Kenneth W. Lowe (pictured, left) will be appointed to the role of chair of the supervisory board of TVN. Scripps acquired the multi-platform media company in July 2015.

Meanwhile, Jim Samples (pictured, right), the media co’s president of international, has been appointed president of TVN’s management board, with daily oversight of the company. Samples had been leading the company on an interim basis since July 2016, and will continue to oversee international operations.

“Under the ownership of Scripps Networks Interactive, TVN has gone from strength to strength in the last eighteen months, across the full range of entertainment, news and lifestyle networks,” noted Lowe in a statement. “The company is central to our plans to grow our business outside the United States, and I am looking forward to working even more closely with the supervisory board as we look to achieve that.”
