Singapore – Global sports media platform, Group ONE Holdings (ONE), has appointed David Levy, former president at American television and media conglomerate Turner Broadcasting Inc, to its board of directors. He will serve as lead director, and will be actively involved in the development and execution of the platform’s strategy.
ONE is a sports media property that broadcasts across more than 150 territories with some of the largest networks and digital broadcasters, including Star Sports, Beijing TV, and TV5, as well as Turner Sports, and Dubai Sports, among many others.
Levy brings with him 30 years of proven leadership experience in the sports and media sectors. In his previous work, Levy has led Turner Sports’ media rights and defined the division through its association with premium sports content, events, and brands like the NCAA Men’s Basketball Championship (March Madness), NBA, and MLB, as well as PGA Tour.
Levy has also overseen Turner’s addition of premium sports properties when it acquired the rights to the Union of European Football Associations (UEFA) – including UEFA Champions League, Europa League, and the UEFA Super Cup – which later became the foundation for the direct-to-consumer streaming sports destination, B/R Live.
In his appointment, he will be developing strategies to expand its live events, content platforms, and reach in the U.S. and other key international markets, including assisting in its media rights expansion efforts.
“ONE has an incredibly talented and visionary Board and management team, and I believe my complementary experiences and relationships will enable us to capture the significant opportunities that lie ahead as the demand for live sports and creative programming reaches new heights across traditional and digital channels,” said Levy.
Meanwhile, Chatri Sityodtong, the founder, chairman, and CEO of Group ONE, commented that Levy is the perfect addition to the board with his proven track record of working with the largest sports leagues in the world.
“We look forward to working with David as we accelerate our strategy to bring our popular martial arts and gaming content to the U.S. and other international markets,” said Sityodtong.
