Ottawa-headquartered Gusto Worldwide Media has appointed Jeremy Clark as its new general manager.

Clark, who most recently served as the director of network and programming operations at Canada’s Cable Public Affairs Channel (CPAC), is tasked with growing the company’s production slate, facilitating OTT and international channel growth and overseeing its day-to-day operations. He will work closely with Gusto Worldwide Media’s president and CEO, Chris Knight.

Prior to his seven-year tenure at CPAC, Clark served in a number of roles for Canadian mediaco Rogers Communications, most recently as a regional station manager.

News of Clark’s hire comes one week after Gusto announced it had appointed Corey Caplan as senior director of international sales.

In late June, Gusto revealed that its linear television channel Gusto TV is launching in Singapore next month. The launch represents the first time Gusto has taken its linear channel into an international market, with the channel launching via the pay-TV operator StarHub TV and StarHub’s OTT service, StarHub Go.

In December, the company, which produces native 4K food and cooking content for traditional and digital media, opened a 13,000 square-foot TV studio and head office, with a view to increasing its production output in the coming years.
