Discovery Communications Tuesday named Gabe Vehovsky to lead a new team charged with developing digital businesses.
The Digital Strategy and Emerging Businesses group will be part think tank, part product and partnership and development. Vehovsky, whose current title is Executive Vice President, Digital Media Strategy and Client Solutions, will manage a pipeline of digital initiatives working with Discovery’s leadership.
Vehovsky came to Discovery as exec VP of strategy and research for HowStuffWorks.com, which Discovery acquired in 2007. Since then he’s been working with Discovery’s portfolio of websites, including Discovery.com and TLC.com.
