BBC Worldwide ANZ appoints Emren Kara as Head of Legal
BBC Worldwide Australia & New Zealand (ANZ) has announced its new Head of Legal, Emren Kara. His specialist background in digital media will be an asset to the company as it grows in the region. Kara comes to BBC Worldwide with a wealth of experience from Mi9 – the digital arm of Nine Entertainment – where he managed all legal, compliance and regulatory work across the company’s businesses and assets, including ninemsn.com.au and msn.co.nz.
Kara will report to Fiona Lang, who held the role until May when she was promoted to BBC Worldwide’s Chief Operating Officer. In this role, he will oversee the day-to-day management and operations for BBC Worldwide’s legal functions, covering many areas of business and commercial activity, including television sales, digital distribution and channels operations. Kara will also oversee editorial compliance in the region, and will manage local corporate governance for BBC Worldwide ANZ.
COO Fiona Lang said that Kara’s appointment demonstrates how the company is growing strategically in a new media environment. “Emren is a great addition to the BBC Worldwide ANZ business, bringing commercial pragmatism with outstanding legal ability. His experience in digital media and new business activity illustrates how BBC Worldwide is growing to accommodate the changing needs of its audience.”
