Turner International Asia Pacific has announced in a statement that Anshuman Misra, senior vice president and managing director of networks and content distribution, has resigned from his position with effect from 12 October.
After almost 14 years with Turner in Asia, Hong Kong-based Misra is to take time off before embarking on his next career move.
Steve Marcopoto, president and MD Turner International Asia Pacific said, "On behalf of everyone at Turner in Asia, I’d like to thank Anshuman for his significant contribution to the company’s success since 1998. He has been a first class colleague and trusted business partner throughout and we wish him every success in the next stage of his career.”
On his exit, Misra said, “After working without a real break for more than two decades, I look forward to taking a few months off before I start the next chapter of my work life. I hope it’s as exciting as the time I’ve had with Turner. I want to thank everyone at Turner for all the support and camaraderie. I walk out of the company very satisfied but also sad to leave such a great bunch of people.”
Prior to joining Turner, Misra was general manager, BBC World (India), where he managed the distribution and sales of the news and current affairs channel.
