WarnerMedia has promoted Thomas Ciampa as its new country manager for Italy, Spain and Portugal. His purview includes regional theatrical distribution and production, content licensing, home entertainment, consumer products and advertising sales.
Ciampa—who was previously SVP of theatrical distribution and local productions in those regions—takes over from president and country manager Barbara Salabè’s, whose departure at the end of the month was announced yesterday.
In his new role, Ciampa will report to Priya Dogra, president of WarnerMedia EMEA and Asia (excluding China), and he will oversee commercial strategy and marketing activities in his territory.
Ciampa will also continue to manage the distribution of Sony Pictures’ movies in Italy, and will collaborate with HBO Max and WarnerMedia’s networks in LA. He started working for Warner Bros. in 2002 as a sales manager for its Warner Village theaters in the UK, and has since served in a variety of senior management roles, including VP of theatrical distribution and new theatrical ventures.
