Scripps Networks Interactive has hired Henry Ahn, ex of NBCUniversal, to
replace former distribution chief Lynne Costantini, who left in June.
SNI said Ahn is joining from NBCU, and will be based in Knoxville, Tenn., reporting to SNI president John Lansing and serving as a member of the company's management committee and diversity council. His title is executive vice president of content distribution and marketing. He starts Oct. 1.
Ahn's last title at NBCU was EVP of TV networks distribution. Earlier in his career, Ahn was a financial analyst at HBO and Comedy Central.
"Henry is a respected industry leader with the ability to influence and maintain key relationships at all levels," Lansing said in a release. "He has extensive cross-divisional experience and has demonstrated excellent problem-solving skills, which is vital in today's competitive business climate."
