CNN International has hired former Viacom executive Liz Nunn as head of its UK-based ad sales unit.

Nunn, formerly Liz Rakowicz, was previously vice-president, international sales at Viacom.

Nunn will head CNN’s ad sales in the UK, the Netherlands and Finland and will also coordinate CNN’s business relations with media agencies globally.

She will report to Petra Malnicka, vice-president, ad sales for western Europe.

Malenicka said: “I am thrilled to be working with Liz again, having seen first-hand what she brings to our sales operation.  The UK is a hub of creative excellence and the centre of critical media agency relationships, and we want to build on our leading pan-regional position here.  Liz’s energy, sharp mind, market knowledge and industry network are second to none.  She will greatly strengthen CNN’s competitive advantage in this key market.”
