Turner APAC restructure sees elimination of several jobs
12 October 2012
Turner International Asia-Pacific has completed its year-long regional restructure, which has resulted in several roles being made redundant.
As part of the restructure, the company’s management has been separated into three operating regions of North Asia, South Asia and Southeast Asia/Pacific.
Siddharth Jain has been named Turner Asia-Pacific managing director for South Asia, Yew Ming Lau managing director North Asia and Sunny Saha will lead its Southeast Asia/Pacific operations. Phil Nelson has been appointed vice-president of business development. All will report directly to Turner International Asia-Pacific president and managing director Steve Marcopoto.
Turner’s portfolio of 24 networks, 29 websites and other businesses covers 23 territories across the region.
The reorganisation has also resulted in the elimination of a number of positions, in a move related to the efficiency of the organisation. It is not clear which roles have been affected.
“This important rationalisation completes a process we began last year to optimise the operating and financial performance of our core business while positioning ourselves for further investments to drive our next stage of growth,” says Marcopoto.
“All of these steps make us a more agile organisation with enhanced focus and decision-making in each market of this large and complex region of regions,” he adds.
