CNN promotes APAC’s Andrew Demaria to international role

Andrew Demaria, the Executive Producer of CNN Digital Asia, has been promoted to Vice President and Managing Editor of CNN Digital International.

He has spent the last few years based in Hong Kong but will relocate to London in the coming months.

He will be responsible for leading all editorial efforts and new initiatives across CNNI’s digital platforms and CNN Arabic. 

The announcement below was made by Meredith Artley, who is the Editor in Chief of CNN Digital.

In addition to being a senior leader for CNN Digital, CNN International and beyond, Andrew will work tightly with news gathering editors and managers around the world to lead us to more distinctive digital work on the biggest stories of the day. He’ll collaborate with the sales teams to generate dazzling features and specials that appeal to both audiences and advertisers. He’ll also help identify new audiences and opportunities in new markets, working with teams across CNN Worldwide to seize what we all believe is a huge global digital potential for CNN across mobile, social and desktop. 

Andrew was most recently the Executive Producer for CNN Digital Asia.  Before that, he was the Editor in Chief for CNN Travel where he launched and led a vertical that showcased creative work produced in 5 languages resulting in gangbuster growth. He’s spent time as a producer on the TV side, was part of the launch teams for CNN.com Asia and later CNN.com International and has had stints at the BBC and ABC (in Australia).

He hails from Melbourne and as a result embodies the two big Melburnian passions — decent coffee and Australian Rules football. 

Andrew’s scope and teams span the world. To that end, he will be spotted very often in London, Atlanta/NYC, Dubai and other corners, including Hong Kong, where he will be based for the next several months as he prepares to relocate to London.

He officially starts at the beginning of April.
