Discovery Networks APAC hires Gary Chin as international sales director

Gary ChinDiscovery Networks has appointed a new director of international sales for the Asia Pacific region, bringing in Gary Chin, who joins the television network with a digital background.

He brings to the role 17 years of experience in digital media, both in the US and APAC region, with CBS Interactive, Admax and Zuji.

He joins Discovery from 6Estates, an analytics company he co-founded in 2014, and will report to Vikram Channa, head of international sales and also VP of production, development and commercial partnerships.

Chin’s arrival comes some months after long-time VP of sales Jacqueline Tok joined Sony Pictures as VP of media and sponsorship after 12 and a half years with Discovery. Channa was appointed to his current dual role to replace Tok.

Chin joins the firm at a time of considerable change under new regional boss Arthur Bastings, who has rebooted the company’s strategy for Asia as the media owner giant activates a large-scale global cost cutting programme.
