Fremantle has appointed Ganesh Rajaram as CEO In Asia and Latin America

Ganesh Rajaram and Haryaty Rahman are rising at Fremantle, the producer of American Idol and Got Talent, respectively.

Rajaram will take over as CEO of Fremantle Asia and Latin America on January 1, 2023, and Haryaty Rahman will be elevated to EVP Sales to take his place.
