A+E Networks has promoted Amanda Hill to the newly created position of Chief Marketing Officer. She had been Chief Creative Officer, overseeing A+E Networks’ international marketing, communications and programming teams.
In her new role, Hill will manage marketing for A+E Networks’ portfolio of brands and businesses in the U.S. and abroad across all platforms — from linear television to direct-to-consumer to OTT and digital. She’ll be based in New York and report to Nancy Dubuc, CEO of A+E Networks. Her new domestic responsibilities overseeing marketing for all networks include those previously handled by History and A&E marketing chief Guy Slattery who went to serve as GM of A+E Networks’ Viceland.
Prior to joining A+E Networks, Hill served as Chief Brands Officer for BBC Worldwide, where she was responsible for developing the brand strategy for all of BBC Worldwide’s businesses and formats.
