Posted: 19 Feb 2010"Bloomberg has expanded the remit of commercial director Lindsay Oliver for Europe, Middle East, and Africa to encompass Asia, as the television network looks to expand its global footprint. Oliver, a former CNBC Europe network director, joined Bloomberg at the start of 2009, with responsibility for the financial network's five European language channels. ... Oliver's promotion comes as Bloomberg looks to strike new distribution deals across Asia. It claims that Oliver was fundamental to increasing the English-language network's presence from 28 million households in 2008 across Europe, Africa and Asia, to more than 140 million last year. Previously, Oliver was commercial director at Al Jazeera, where she launched the network in 80 million households."
