Ali Gursoy has been named in the role at New York-based Fashion One Group after a spell at Hong Kong-based Commercialize TV.
He has worked in international programming for more than 15 years, with experience in content licensing and curation in territories such as North and Latin America, Europe and Asia. He also has spent time in the technology and media sectors.
Fashion One hasn’t had a CEO for some time, with former chief Ashley Jordan stepping down from the role, and as chief exec of Fashion One parent Bigfoot Entertainment, in January 2015.
In the past fiscal year, Fashion One has expanded its mix of entertainment, lifestyle and fashion programming in Africa, Eastern Europe and Asia.
“Ali is going to take Fashion One to the next level,” said Fashion One chairman and founder Mick Gleissner. His in-depth experience prowess in our industry, both fashion and content, combined with his network and ability to develop innovative products make him an extraordinary fit for Fashion One.”
