Turner announces new Southeast Asia organization and new general manager

Turner Asia Pacific has announced the establishment of a new Southeast Asia organization and the appointment of a new regional lead to be based in Singapore.

Vishal Dembla has been named Vice President and General Manager of Turner Southeast Asia. In this new role, he has been tasked with growing all of Turner’s commercial and channel operations within this increasingly important region, as well as the day-to-day management of its kids and entertainment businesses in Southeast Asia.

“For the first time, we have aligned all our Southeast Asia efforts under one executive and these changes will enable Turner to better develop its growing business in this region,” commented Phil Nelson, Turner’s Managing Director of Southeast Asia Pacific and North Asia. “Vishal has been an integral member of our senior management team – forging new initiatives and driving growth – and is well-positioned for this new role.”

In addition to overseeing all commercial lines including ad-sales and content sales, Dembla will lead the region’s programming, creative services, and marketing departments for all of Turner’s kids and entertainment brands. The team will also handle the network distribution side of the business focusing on further expanding the reach of brands including CNN International, Warner TV, Oh!K, Cartoon Network and Boomerang in Southeast Asia.

In his previous capacity, Dembla was responsible for Turner’s distribution and content sales in Hong Kong, Thailand, Vietnam, and the Philippines. His expanded geographical remit now also includes Singapore, Malaysia, and Indonesia.
