Scripps Networks Interactive has appointed former A+E Networks UK exec Kasia Jablonska (pictured) to the role of VP of affiliate sales for EMEA.
Jablonska will be charged with developing new business opportunities and managing the distribution of Scripps’ factual and lifestyle brands across the region, including Food Network, Travel Channel, Fine Living and HGTV. The latter channel is scheduled to launch across EMEA markets in November.
Based in London, Jablonska will report to Ross Hair, senior VP of commercial for the UK and EMEA.
Most recently, Jablonska served as director of distribution for A+E Networks UK working across the UK, CEE, Benelux, Africa and Middle East. There, she oversaw affiliate and new media sales, including the launch of Lifetime in Africa and H2 across CEE and the Middle East.
Prior to this, she held commercial and affiliate sales positions with NBCUniversal, Fox International Channels, National Geographic Partners and Poland’s Wizja TV.
“Kasia brings more than 15 years’ experience in international channel distribution, content sales and commercial strategy and will play an integral role in further establishing Scripps Networks as the leading provider of lifestyle media across EMEA,” said Hair in a statement.
