Tomás Yankelevich Departs Warner Bros. Discovery


Tomás Yankelevich, executive VP and chief content officer of general entertainment for Latin America and U.S. Hispanic at Warner Bros. Discovery, is exiting his role at the end of June to pursue new professional endeavors.

Yankelevich has led the general entertainment content teams for some of the most successful brands in Latin America, including the HBO Max and discovery+ (in Brazil) streaming platforms and the HBO, TNT, Warner Channel, Space and, most recently, Discovery Channel and Home & Health pay-TV channels.

From Miami, he directed the launch of HBO Max in Latin America, the creation of a hub for the development and production of local original titles, the founding of Particular Crowd movie studio (now independently managed), the launch and expansion of TNT Sports and the consolidation of the company’s family of pay-TV brands.

“I am very grateful to Tomás for his successful leadership of our content and production teams and, most of all, for having created such a solid group of professionals,” commented Fernando Medin, president of Warner Bros. Discovery for Latin America and U.S. Hispanic.

“It was a privilege to lead this team for the past six years and to work with amazing professionals who share the same passion: entertaining audiences with thrilling stories,” Yankelevich said. “As I close this cycle and start a new phase in my career, I have the satisfaction of knowing that we reached our goals and that I am leaving in place a team made up of outstanding and committed human beings.”
