Turner hires P&G exec as Philippines boss

Turner Asia Pacific has appointed an executive from consumer goods company Procter & Gamble as its country manager in the Philippines.

Jia Salindong-Du

Jia Salindong-Du is tasked with expanding Turner’s children’s and entertainment business in the Philippines, which includes developing local content opportunities, creating more consumer experiences and expanding the brands’ fanbase.

She will also support ad sales and operate in tandem with the consumer products and licensing team for Cartoon Network.

In addition, she will be responsible for the channel distribution of Turner brands locally, including CNN International, Cartoon Network, Boomerang and Warner TV.

Salindong-Du joins from Procter & Gamble, where she worked on the beauty and haircare products portfolio.

Vishal Dembla, general manager of Turner’s business in South-East Asia, said: “Jia has worked in a number of brand management and business development roles, and she will be an excellent leader for our highly ambitious team in Manila.

“The Philippines is one of our most important markets in South-East Asia and, with Jia now in place, we are confident of continued growth there.”

Earlier this year, Turner appointed the former VP of distribution and sales at FremantleMedia’s children’s arm as regional syndication director for the UK and Northern Europe.
