WarnerMedia, a global portfolio of iconic entertainment, news, and sports brands, unveils its new regional hub for Asia (excluding China and Japan).
Officially opened by Singapore’s Minister for Communications and Information (MCI) Josephine Teo, the office signals the full integration of WarnerMedia’s business in the region that includes Warner Bros., HBO and Turner brands. It also houses the new streaming platform HBO Max, which is expected to launch in its first Asian markets in the future.
WarnerMedia expects to substantially increase additional roles in Singapore in the coming years, including those in the technology field as the company increases focus on its direct-to-consumer streaming business led by Amit Malhotra, Managing Director for HBO Max in Southeast Asia, India and Korea.
The new office is a sprawling 40,000sqft across two floors at Solaris in Fusionopolis, the city state’s media and tech business park. The modern space was designed by Singapore firm ID21 and incorporates a post-Covid and flexible work environment inspired by an “Activity Based Work” strategy.
Also, at the opening ceremony were special guests including notable Singaporean filmmakers and storytellers Eric Khoo (HBO’s Folklore, Food Lore and Invisible Stories) and Ler Jiyuan (HBO’s Invisible Stories).
