A+E Networks has appointed Prem Kamath as deputy managing director for Asia Pacific, effective immediately.

Based in Singapore, Kamath will be in charge of the commercial, financial and operational functions of A+E Networks Asia, A+E Networks' wholly-owned Southeast Asia business. He will also provide strategic support for A+E Networks' portfolio of businesses throughout the Asia-Pacific region, and will have oversight of negotiations with affiliates, suppliers, clients and institutions for the company's portfolio of channels, including HISTORY, Lifetime, H2, Crime + Investigation and BIO.

"Prem is a proven innovator with a stellar track record of taking international media brands and not only making them genre leaders but also expanding the genre in local markets," said Alan Hodges, managing director of Asia-Pacific. "Prem's strategic and operational experience will be crucial for driving growth and commercial development in this region."

Kamath joins A+E Networks from STAR India, where he was executive vice president and general manager, overseeing Channel V and Star Pravah.

Kamath also held the top marketing post for all of the Star Network channels before becoming the business head for Channel V and Star Pavah. And prior to joining STAR, he held the position of associate vice president at Leo Burnett Worldwide in India.
