Jihee Nam has been named vice president and general manager for Nickelodeon Networks Australia and New Zealand, a joint venture between Viacom International Media Networks and Foxtel.
The announcement was made by Ben Richardson, senior vice president and general manager, Viacom International Media Networks Australia and New Zealand.
Nam replaces Richardson, who was promoted to his current position in February.
Nam joins Nickelodeon Networks after serving as the vice president and head of digital media for VIMN Asia since 2009.
In her new role, Nam will be responsible for the day-to-day management of Nickelodeon’s brands in Australia and New Zealand, overseeing a diverse business consisting of 24-hour subscription television networks, digital platforms, live events, recreation destinations, consumer products, local production and program sales.
