Warner Bros Discovery EMEA president steps down

Going forward, the EMEA leadership team will report directly to international president Gerhard Zeiler. Dogra's role will not be replaced

Priya Dogra, president and MD of Warner Bros Discovery EMEA, is stepping down from her role after almost 14 years with the company in various guises.

In an email sent to WBD staff, and seen by TVBEurope, international president Gerhard Zeiler said he and Dogra had “mutually agreed” she will leave the company later this year.

He admitted that the news would be a surprise to many given that the two have worked closely together, and Dogra “has been instrumental in many important developments at our company during her tenure”.

“I have known Priya since I joined Turner in 2012 and she is a world-class executive, whose knowledge of our industry, and especially the international media landscape, is extraordinary,” added Zeiler. “She is as much an expert in the commercial side of our business as she is passionate and knowledgeable about content.”

Zeiler said managing WBD’s EMEA business led Dogra to work closely with multiple stakeholders across the organisation and “Priya has fostered a collaborative culture focused on driving company-wide success”.

Going forward, the EMEA leadership team will report directly to Zeiler, said the email. Dogra’s role will not be replaced.
