WarnerMedia has appointed former 21st Century Fox executive Miranda Higham as senior vice president and head of communications for its international operations.
Based in London and reporting to Christy Haubegger, EVP of communications and chief inclusion officer, Higham will be the lead communications executive for WarnerMedia outside of the US.
The company continues to grow its international presence and recently announced it would launch streaming service HBO Max in 39 territories including Latin America this June, with Europe and other regions to follow.
Higham will also work closely with Gerhard Zeiler, head of WarnerMedia International, Priya Dogra, head of WarnerMedia, EMEA and Asia (excluding China), and their respective teams.
Higham worked at 21st Century Fox from June 2013 to November 2019, latterly as senior vice president of corporate communications, which covered EMEA.
Her focus included merger and acquisition activities such as Fox’s offer for Sky and its Endemol Shine joint venture. She was also a principal advisor to Fox’s leadership team (formerly News Corporation) on issues such as the Leveson Inquiry and Sky Deutschland’s turnaround.
