Warner Bros. Discovery has set out its India, Southeast Asia and Korea (INSEAK) leadership team under Clement Schwebig, as president and managing director.
The Thursday announcement follows just hours after a similar rejig of the EMEA leadership team under Priya Dogra.
Both Schwebig and Dogra report to Gerhard Zeiler, president of international for the merged company. Zeiler, a former WarnerMedia executive, now oversees the global channels business with a “dotted line” to international streaming lead JB Perrette, a Discovery veteran. Zeiler previously held the same role for WarnerMedia, and now also has responsibility for Discovery’s international footprint.
As with the EMEA revamp, there is a strong emphasis on territory management. “Our region will be structured with a territory focused approach to be more agile and locally relevant,” Schwebig said in an internal note. “At the same time, we will leverage our scale across the business and region to provide deeper expertise and greater efficiency. This means some functions will be in-country while others are regional.”
