The largest global sports media property in Asia, ONE Championship, recently announced the addition of three new leaders to its senior management team to help lead the organization in critical areas in 2018 and beyond.

According to a media release, Hua Fung Teh is named Chief Financial Officer, Mahesh Subramanian will serve as Chief Technology Officer, and Souvik Dutta will come on board as Vice President of Engineering.

“These senior executives will add significant leadership strength to ONE Championship and will allow us to continue to scale across Asia,” Chatri Sityodtong, Chairman and CEO of ONE Championship, says in a statement.

As CFO, Teh will be responsible for all areas of finance, accounting, HR and corporate development, including oversight of key strategic projects and partnerships. He is currently a principal at leading global private equity firm TPG Capital where he is a senior member of the Southeast Asia investment team based in Singapore. Prior to TPG, Teh held various leadership positions in the Republic of Singapore Air Force and Singapore’s Ministry of Trade and Industry. He was a key member of the team that brought Formula One to Singapore, organizing the first night race in Formula One history through an initiative by the Singapore Government. He is a graduate of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and Harvard Business School, and serves on the Board of Commissioners of BUMA in Indonesia.

Subramanian will oversee all aspects of ONE Championship’s technology and infrastructure, including mobile, OTT, data and technology asset management, network architecture, and support. He brings over 20 years of experience in the technology industry with his stints in Intel, Siemens, Marvell, and Lucent Technologies. He has over 10 years of mobile video streaming experience with start-ups, such as Strmeasy and Touchfone Technology.

Dutta will be responsible for driving the execution of ONE Championship's mobile and digital technology solutions. He has a decade of experience in the role of VP of Engineering with fast-paced start-ups, Touchfone Technology, and ScoopWhoop. Dutta is a graduate of the Indian Institute of Technology, Madras.

ONE Championship announced its 2018 calendar earlier this year, promising to deliver a record-high of 24 events across Asia’s major cities. In addition, audiences can expect to see the first weekly reality TV series by ONE Championship in 2018.
