A&E Networks Shuffles Top Executive Lineup THR
A&E Networks has made a number of management changes, as newly installed Chief Executive Nancy Dubuc sets up her team of top execs.
The Hollywood Reporter’s Live Feed reports that three executive VP/general managers have been named: Dirk Hoogstra, at History/H2; David McKillop, at A&E; and Rob Sharenow, at Lifetime.
“In her bid to ramp up internally, Dubuc has moved former A&E honcho Bob DeBitetto to president of brand strategy and business development at newly launched in-house A+E Studios,” the report notes.
Additionally, Jana Bennett is joining the company as president of Bio and LMN.
In a statement today announcing the moves, Dubuc said: “At A+E Networks, we have created an amazing culture that is focused on creativity and innovation, and this has driven unprecedented success. We have the top brands that appeal to men, women and adults and we have strong brands in our emerging networks. With the ramp-up and realignment of our programming groups, A+E Networks is well positioned to reach even greater heights.”
