A+E Networks Ups Glen Hansen & Ellen Lovejoy


A+E Networks International has promoted Glen Hansen to senior VP of content sales in the Asia-Pacific region, and Ellen Lovejoy to senior VP and head of sales in the Americas and formats.

Hansen’s new role will expand upon his duties to include territory manager across Australia and New Zealand. He has overseen international content sales across the Asia Pacific, developing and implementing sales strategies for A+E’s programming catalog in the developing region, since joining A+E Networks in 2014. He joined the company from Zodiak Rights, where he was senior VP of sales and acquisitions for the North American market.

In her new position, Lovejoy will take on additional leadership responsibilities in the region while continuing to grow A+E Networks’ format business around the world. She joined A+E Networks in 2011 as senior director of international content sales, overseeing sales into Australia, New Zealand and Canada. She was promoted to VP in 2013, and again in 2017 to VP and head of sales in the Americas and formats. Hansen previously held roles at Beyond Distribution and Target Entertainment.

Both Hansen and Lovejoy report to Richard Tulk-Hart, managing director for content sales and co-productions.
