In February, Rani Raad was appointed to a top job at one of
the world’s biggest news broadcasters. It’s the culmination of an incredible
rise in the TV industry, that started fifteen years ago when he first took a
job with Turner Broadcasting.
He started his career with the company in New York City and
within five years was promoted to Vice President for Regional Advertising Sales
in the Middle East, Africa and Southern Europe, at CNN International’s London
headquarters, which remains his base of operations. After substantially growing
revenues from those markets, Raad was promoted to Senior Vice President and
tasked with a global remit.
