March 16, 2017

TVT has announced the appointment of Yuko Suguro as Head of Operations in Japan. Suguro joins from Discovery where she was one of the team that launched the channel in the region, and brings to the new role over twenty years’ experience of operational and technical management.

TVT provides specialist media services that enable broadcasters and content owners to overcome the complexities of creative content versioning and international compliance. Japan has become a key market for TVT as content becomes increasingly globalised. The company already has an established offering in the region, working with customers like BBC World News, A+E Networks and Hulu.

Ian Brotherston, CEO, TVT commented, “Yuko brings with her extensive experience in managing media delivery and operations for one of the world’s leading broadcasters. Her experience at Discovery has given her invaluable knowledge of the technical and operational challenges of bringing international content to the Japanese market. Her appointment is a significant step for TVT as we continue to grow our presence and support an increasing number of broadcasters and content owners that distribute their content to Asian audiences.”
