Matt Coe has been appointed head of creative for BBC Studios APAC, where he will lead the Sydney and Singapore-based creative and production management teams for BBC Studios’ channels and programming.

The new hub will focus on its premium branded services in the Asia and ANZ region, including BBC First, UKTV, BBC Earth, BBC Lifestyle, CBeebies and streaming service BBC Player, which feature on platforms including Foxtel in Australia, Sky TV in New Zealand, and StarHub in Singapore, among others.
