Scripps rejigs UK team

US-based Scripps Networks Interactive has reshuffled its senior management in the UK, giving new roles to Jonathan Sichel and Nick Thorogood.

Sichel, who joined the company in 2009 when it acquired Travel Channel in the US, has been named MD of the company in the UK, Europe, the Middle East and Africa.

He will oversee day-to-day operations of the company’s international division and will focus on expanding channel distribution, reporting to chief international operating officer Bob Baskerville.

Thorogood has been named senior VP of content and marketing for the UK and EMEA, reporting to Sichel. He joined Scripps from BBC Commercial Agency in 2010 to be MD of Food Network EMEA, overseeing the channel’s launch and development.

The company’s UK-based operations include Food Network, Fine Living Network and, since March, Travel Channel International.
