Gazprom Media Changes the Management Team for Its Entertainment TV Subholding

Gazprom Media, the leading diversified media holding in Russia and Eastern Europe, has announced new appointments for its Entertainment TV subholding. Svetlana Fefilova, acting deputy CEO of Gazprom Media, and Ruben Oganesov, advisor to the CEO and deputy CEO as of July 16, were named managing directors of Gazprom Media Entertainment TV. Starting July 7, 2020, they will oversee the management of the subholding alongside Roman Petrenko, who will continue on as managing director. The decision for these appointments was taken by the Board of Directors of Gazprom Media Entertainment TV. 

“Gazprom Media is the leader in the entertainment and sports television segment in Russia. We have built a large production base and brought together great expertise and accumulated experience in launching successful projects. Gazprom Media Entertainment TV channels are exemplary outlets in national broadcasting. The work of our entertainment assets has a huge influence on the operational and financial performance of the Holding. In today’s unstable climate, when the industry is undergoing extensive transformation, we took a logical and well-researched decision to increase the Holding’s involvement in the management of this segment and to increase the involvement of Gazprom Media’s management in the strategic and operational management of Gazprom Media Entertainment TV. I am confident that the new managing directors, Ruben Oganesov and Svetlana Fefilova, will help the subholding’s team take our Entertainment TV segment to a whole new level”.
