It’s almost like one of those cartoon films where big cats keep jumping out from the barrel at frequent intervals. Turner International has announced one more major exit, and this is concerning the big man himself. Yes, Steve Marcopoto has announced he will step down as President and Managing Director, Turner International Asia Pacific at the end of his contract in December 2013. He’s not going away immediately though as he will stay on as a Senior Advisor to Turner International President Gerhard Zeiler to ensure a seamless transition and provide continuity on current new initiatives. The succession will be announced in due course.


Said Gerhard Zeiler, President Turner Broadcasting System International: “I thank Steve for his outstanding achievements in his 15 years with Turner Broadcasting. Steve has guided Turner Asia Pacific through a period of rapid change.”


Steve Marcopoto added: “Turner is poised for a great run and now is the best moment for the company to put a fresh set of hands in charge. It feels right to initiate the handover now as I complete 15 years in this job, and I intend to hand over Turner Asia Pacific to my successor in an optimal state.”
