CASBAA chief executive Christopher Slaughter resigns after 5 years

The chief executive officer of Pay TV industry body CASBAA is to step down after five years.

Christopher Slaughter will officially exit the industry body on December 31, remaining in the role while a search for his successor is undertaken.

Based in Hong Kong, Slaughter previously ran an independent media production house, Asia-Pacific, Vision for seven years, before taking over leadership of CASBAA in 2012.

During his 26-year career across Asia’s media broadcasting scene, Slaughter has held roles at CNBC and NHK, as well as at the American consultancy Yankee Group. He also served as CASBAA convention director in 2004.

CASBAA did not reveal Slaughter’s next move after leaving the organisation.

“The board deeply appreciates Chris’ stewardship of the Association over the past five years. He has spearheaded structural reform of the organisation, created new events, and delivered on CASBAA’s aim to represent, inform, and connect its membership.  We are grateful for his service to the membership and the industry,” said Joe Welch, chairman of CASBAA’s board of directors.

“It has been a tremendous privilege to work so closely with some of the most inspiring leaders of Asia’s multi-channel TV industry, both on the board and among CASBAA’s members. In addition, it has been an honour to serve alongside the passionate and dedicated staff in the executive office.  My time at CASBAA has given me a unique perspective on what has been a transformational period in the industry,” added Slaughter. “I want to express my deep appreciation to the board for this fantastic opportunity over the past five years.”
