Disney Channel UK has promoted marketing director Casper Bjorner to the roles of vice-president of marketing and deputy managing director of the broadcaster’s combined region of UK, Scandinavia and emerging markets. He will report to managing director Rob Gilby.
The promotion comes as the broadcaster strengthens its management team with a number of changes. Jonathan Boseley has been promoted to vice-president of programming and Nick Fuggle moves up to the post of executive director for business operations and finance.
Last month the business launched Disney Cinemagic, a premium film channel for kids. It is still reaping the rewards from the recent launch of two of its most successful franchises, High School Musical and the series Hannah Montana.
