CNN International Commercial has appointed Kimmy Ho as director of content sales and partnerships in North Asia.
Based in Hong Kong, Ho will be responsible for increasing content and services available for CNN’s North Asian affiliates and partners.
The appointment comes at an important time as CNN builds on its position as the first international news brand in Asia Pacific.
The brand continues to produce award-winning news coverage as well as premium original programming under CNN Vision, while ramping up its global digital expansion through investment in mobile and off-platform programming units.
“CNN is more relevant today than ever as we continue to expand our award-winning content across all platforms. We are pleased to have someone of Kimmy’s caliber join our content sales team as she brings in an incredible wealth of knowledge and experience from the media industry and will play a key role in strengthening our growing affiliate partner base across North Asia,” said David Collet.
Ho joins CNN International from Thomson Reuters, where she held the position of Head of Sales, North Asia, and managed businesses across China, Hong Kong, Taiwan and Korea.
