Hansen came to A+E Networks International from Zodiak Rights, where he was senior VP of sales and acquisitions for the North American market.

Lovejoy, meanwhile, has had her leadership responsibilities in the Americas expanded and is also tasked with growing A+E Networks’ format business around the world.

Lovejoy joined A+E Networks in 2011 as senior director of international content sales overseeing sales into Australia, New Zealand and Canada. She was promoted to VP in 2013, expanding her remit to launch a global format sales business, and again to VP head of sales, Americas and formats, in 2017.
