BBC Advertising, the commercial arm of the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC), is boosting its ad sales team in Asia to make the most of growth opportunities in the region.


In response to a strong growth forecast in advertising revenue in Asia-Pacific and combined with a global ad sales strategy to get closer to customers and identify new cross-platform opportunities, two new roles have been created within the Asia leadership team. The decision reflects the desire to build on existing success of BBC Advertising in Asia and a commitment to investment in this growth region, with a focus on key priority markets of China, Korea, Japan, India and fast-track SE Asia.


John Williams has been appointed Vice President, ASEAN & India, and will be based in Singapore. Katy Xu will take on the role of Vice President, Greater China & North Asia, located in Hong Kong. Both assume their new roles effective 1st September 2014 and will report directly into Sunita Rajan, EVP Advertising Sales, Asia, BBC Worldwide.


John has relocated to Asia from New York, where he was previously VP, International Advertising for BBC Worldwide North America.  Katy, currently Regional Director, Hong Kong & Greater China, takes on an expanded role with responsibility for more markets.
