“This is the hardest part… these are all extremely talented leaders, longstanding colleagues and friends to many of you, and their contributions to the success of HBO Max cannot be overstated. Taking HBO Max from one to 61 countries and positioning the service quickly as one of the most in demand among consumers is an incredible accomplishment,” he added.
