A+E Networks has appointed former Twitter Korea executive Youngsun Soh as general manager of its Korean division.

In her new role, Soh (pictured) will build A+E brands and audience engagement, while growing advertising sales and developing content investment plans that support those strategies. She will also be responsible for growing the network’s presence in the digital environment through investing in technology and original content.

Based in Seoul, Soh will report to Saugato Banerjee, A+E Networks GM of North Asia.
