As chief executive of Discovery Communications, David Zaslav sets the strategy and oversees all operations for the #1 pay-TV programmer in the world. Discovery networks now reach nearly 3 billion cumulative subscribers in more than 220 countries.
Zaslav has led Discovery since 2007, executing a number of initiatives that have focused the organisation on growth, performance and operational efficiency. He also has directed a strategic effort to clarify and strengthen Discovery’s world-class brands, including a renewed focus on creativity and increased investment in original content. Since Zaslav took the helm, Discovery has launched some of the fastest-growing cable networks in the U.S. Most recently, the company completed a transaction to acquire a controlling interest in top European sports platform, Eurosport International.
