Sunny Saha to step down from Turner International Asia Pacific

Sunny Saha has announced his decision to step down as Senior Vice President and Managing Director of Entertainment Networks, Turner Broadcasting System Asia Pacific, Inc., with effect from the end of February 2014.

Commenting on the development, Gerhard Zeiler, President, Turner Broadcasting System International said, “Turner owes Sunny a great debt of gratitude. With passion and great professionalism, Sunny has safely guided Turner’s Southeast Asia Pacific business and its kids networks in Asia Pacific through a period of rapid change as a thoughtful business leader and strategic mind.”

On his decision to quit, Saha said, “Turner is set for new growth. At the same time, I am looking for new challenges. Leaving on a high note ensures that the transition will be handled smoothly for all our employees and business partners.”

Since joining Turner in September 2000, Saha has led, in turn, advertising sales and research for India & South Asia; the Asia Pacific regional ad sales, promotional licensing, marketing, interactive and research teams; all kids and entertainment networks across Asia Pacific; and most recently the company’s business for Southeast Asia Pacific.

He has also continued to have strategic oversight of Turner’s kids businesses across the Asia Pacific region. He has launched several TV channels, built five kids brands in the Asia Pacific region, and expanded Turner’s portfolio by developing general entertainment brands in India, Japan, Korea and Southeast Asia.
