In his new role, Mr. Robertson will oversee the sale of television series, theatrical motion pictures, movies for TV and animation to free and pay TV operators over terrestrial, cable, satellite and IPTV platforms. He also oversees the licensing of those titles for both current and previously produced content from the Warner Bros.

Mr. Robertson has spent the past 21 years of his career at Warner Bros., making him the longest tenured sales executive in the division. Based in Sydney, he will report to Malcolm Dudley-Smith, executive vice president, international sales and business development, WBITD.
