Disney Branded TV Europe ups three

Execs rewarded for expanding pay TV presence

MADRID — Simon Amselem, VP and managing director of Disney Branded TV Iberia, has moved across to the same position in France.

Amselem’s relocation is one of three promotions at Walt Disney Television Intl. in Europe.

Jose Vila has been upped from VP and deputy managing director of Branded TV Iberia to Amselem’s former position, while in the U.K., Simon Bailey has been upped to VP-managing director of Branded TV U.K.

All three appointments are rewards for execs who have helped transform Disney’s pay TV channel business from a single feed into a multiplexed array with powerful market reach.

The execs will report to John Hardie, senior VP and managing director of Branded TV Europe, Middle East and Africa.

“Amselem, Bailey and Vila have been the driving force in the success of the European Branded TV business, and in these new positions they will continue to ensure that the business thrives,” Hardie said.
