Warner Bros. Discovery EMEA boss Priya Dogra to exit after 14 years

Warner Bros. Discovery EMEA boss Priya Dogra is leaving the company after almost 14 years.

Dogra, a well-respected industry veteran, served as president and managing director of EMEA since the 2022 merger of Discovery and WarnerMedia, having previously held a similar role for WarnerMedia that also covered Asia, excluding China.

Based in London, Dogra has been responsible for integrating and operating the Discovery and WarnerMedia International orgs across the region. Going forward, Variety understands that the company’s EMEA leadership will report directly into Gerhard Zeiler, Warner Bros. Discovery president of international.

In an internal memo to staff, seen by Variety, Zeiler notes: “Priya has been a key partner to me and has been instrumental in many important developments at our company during her tenure. Priya is a hugely popular leader and is familiar to many of you, having been with us for nearly 14 years, during which time she has made a significant and lasting impact.”

Dogra first joined WarnerMedia in 2009 as director of mergers and acquisitions, and rose in the ranks within the department. In 2018, she was appointed executive VP of strategy and corporate development, and in 2020, she was named president of WarnerMedia EMEA and Asia. Dogra previously worked for seven years at Citigroup, where she was VP of media and telecom investment banking.

“Priya has shepherded the business through several organizational changes proving herself a strategic and empathetic leader,” wrote Zeiler. “Managing the EMEA business has required working closely with multiple stakeholders across the organisation and Priya has fostered a collaborative culture focused on driving company-wide success.”

Dogra’s departure comes just weeks after the exit of Robert Blair, president of international TV distribution, who left the company after 25 years. Like Dogra, Blair’s role is also not being replaced. Variety
