Middle east and north African pay TV operator OSN has appointed new directors of digital and business development.
The operator has named David Hanson (picture, left) as director of digital. He has worked at OSN for over seven years, most recently as director of OSN’s movie channels and on-demand service. He will now head OSN’s digital team and take responsibility for growing the operator’s OSN Play online service.
OSN has also appointed Frederic Copper-Royer (below, right) as business development director, tasked with growing external partnerships and increasing the operator’s revenue opportunities. He joins the OSN from Nokia Corporation MENA where he was responsible for rolling out the company’s music division.
Emad Morcos, vice-president of strategy, business development and digital at OSN, said, “I am delighted to have David and Frederic join the team. David has extensive knowledge about the brand and the industry through his years with the company and was closely involved during the launch of OSN Play in the region. Frederic on the other hand has extensive experience in the music industry rolling out partnership agreements – this makes them both ideal candidates and I am confident that together we will expand OSN’s digital offerings further making us the number one entertainment company in the region.”
