NBCUniversal has named Maggy Chan managing director and executive VP of global advertising and partnerships, effective Jan. 16.
Chan will oversee sales teams in the U.S., Europe, Africa, Asia and the Middle East, which constitute more than 1 billion viewers across 150 countries, the company said. In addition, she will be charged with expanding NBCU's cross-portfolio advertising product, One Platform, to the international markets, inclusive of innovations in ad tech and measurement.
Chan will be based in the U.K. and report to Linda Yaccarino, chairman of global advertising and partnerships.
“Partnerships power this business—period,” Yaccarino said in a statement. “I’m so excited for Maggy to leverage her global perspective to help us continue creating a platform, network and ecosystem that’s fueling growth for every business. I can't wait for her to become the BBC's best gift to NBCU since ‘The Office.’”
