The appointments of Chang and Warren as president of WarnerMedia Distribution come as part of the continuing shakeup of HBO and Turner operations following AT&T’s acquisition of Time Warner last year.
In March, former Turner International chief Gerhard Zeiler was promoted to WarnerMedia chief revenue officer and president of WarnerMedia International Networks. Chang and Warren report to Zeiler. The two will be tasked with garnering digital and linear distribution partners for the nascent HBO Max streaming service, targeted for debut next spring.
“We will have two hugely experienced leaders who know our business inside out,” Zeiler said. “Over the last few months I have worked closely with both; Sofia’s experience and success in driving HBO’s digital subscriptions has been of great value
