Leading independent distributor all3media International continues to expand its regional sales operations with the appointment of Amreet Kaur Chahal as Sales Manager, Asia Pacific, in Singapore.
Reporting to Sabrina Duguet, EVP Asia Pacific, Amreet’s role will encompass representing all3media International’s catalogue for Formats and Finished Programming in South East Asia and India. Amreet joins Kit Yow, who has been appointed to the position of Sales Manager Asia Pacific, responsible for northern Asia including China, Japan and Korea, and Alexander Euler as Executive Assistant to the Asia Pacific management and sales team.
Amreet Kaur Chahal brings extensive experience in the distribution of international content to the Asian market to this newly-created position, having previously worked as Sales Executive at NBCUniversal International Television Distribution and as Account Executive at BBC Worldwide Advertising Sales.

All3media International marked the opening of its Asia office at the recent Asia Television Forum, hosting a packed event at Gordon Ramsay’s Bread Street Kitchen in Singapore’s Marina Bay Sands. The company also sponsored the inaugural ATF Formats Pitch, which was won by Singapore-based production company Xtreme Media. The winning format - Hit It - sees two teams competing against each other in a series of comedic challenges that put a hilarious, high-pressure spin on sports. Winning a prize worth S$20,000, Xtreme Media will be working with all3media International to develop Hit It for pitching to international broadcasters.
Sabrina Duguet commented, “I’m very pleased to announce the growth of our Singapore team, which reflects the huge potential here for our outstanding portfolio of formats and finished content. We were delighted to celebrate the opening of our Asia office with our clients and friends at Gordon Ramsay’s Bread Street Kitchen, particularly as Kitchen Nightmares and Hotel Hell are proving to be very popular in the region, and are looking forward to working with Xtreme to launch their fantastic new format on the global stage in 2017.”
Amreet Kaur Chahal added, “Joining such a dynamic and forward-thinking global company is a great honour and I’m looking forward to working with the team to bring all3media’s international content to Asian broadcasters. Initiatives such as the ATF Formats Pitch underline the company’s strong ambitions for growth across this diverse and vibrant region.”
