Phil Goodhew Upped at Warner Bros. International TV Distribution


LONDON: Phil Goodhew has been elevated to senior VP of commercial strategy at Warner Bros. International Television Distribution (WBITVD), a newly created position.

In his expanded role, Goodhew will move from an EMEA focus to covering all international territories in alignment with the recent restructuring of the international sales efforts under Robert Blair in London. Goodhew and his team will collaborate with all WBITVD sales execs as they develop sales opportunities and provide analytical and strategic support for transactions.

Goodhew previously served as WBITVD’s VP of business development for EMEA since 2007. He has been working at the company for the past 16 years. Earlier in his career, he was employed by a boutique strategy consultancy.

“Phil is a smart, experienced and strategic executive,” said Jeffrey R. Schlesinger, the president of WBITVD. “During his time in our division our business has become more complex and Phil has played a key role as we have transformed our deal-making in EMEA. With all of the sales efforts now coordinated from London, I look forward to him making an even larger contribution by becoming involved in additional regions as well.”
