Brand Director Middle East & Africa, Discovery
United Arab Emirates
Made Fatafeat #1 in digital footprint
The chance to run all things brand for the world's biggest real-life entertainment company saw Henry move to Dubai in late 2017 to join Discovery's Africa and Middle East team. Running ad sales, PR & marketing, digital and research for 15 channels, including Food Network, TLC, Discovery Channel, HGTV and Fatafeat (the Middle East's biggest Arabic food channel), he's become very familiar with the phrase Inshallah. Before Discovery, he was London-based as Head of Marketing at Global, one of the UK's largest media groups with over 24 million weekly listeners across its radio portfolio that includes Heart, Capital FM, LBC and Classic FM. Prior to that he was at Hearst magazines and ITV. It wasn't always thus — preceding his time in media, he completed a PhD in American foreign policy at UCL in London.
