CMT hires Campos as VP of programming

CMT has tapped Turner Broadcasting veteran Hector Campos to serve as vice president of programming and strategy.

Campos will be responsible for planning and implementing short-term schedules for the network’s linear and video on demand program platforms. He also will oversee the day-to-day management of the program planning and scheduling department.

“Hector is joining CMT at a time of significant growth, and we know that his experience will be an asset in managing our expanding slate of programming,” Katie Buchanan, CMT senior vice president of programming strategy and acquisitions, said in a release.

Campos comes to CMT after working more than a decade at Turner Broadcasting System in Atlanta, where he most recently served as director of program acquisition and sales. In that role, he acquired licensed series and movies for all Turner Entertainment Group Networks stations (TBS, TNT, TruTV, TCM and Cartoon).  He also provided acquisition support to Turner's news division stations (CNN and HLN) and was responsible for monetizing Turner's existing programming assets.

Campos graduated from Villanova University and earned an MBA degree from Emory University’s Goizueta Business School.

Vern Davenport has stepped down as CEO of M*Modal and will be replaced by former QuadraMed President and CEO Duncan W. James, the company announced today. 

Additionally, Graham O. King has been named the M*Modal's board chairman.

King is a long-time health care industry official and strategic consultant, formerly head of the two of the largest health care information technology companies in the world, Share Medical Systems, which is now part of Siemens Corp. and HBOC, which is now owned by McKesson Corp. He has served as a director on the boards of seven companies, most of which were publicly owned and technology based across industries such as health care, engineering, manufacturing, real estate and retail.

In related moves, M*Modal also announced that Ron Scarboro, chief financial officer, has been appointed chief operating officer. He replaces Amy Amick, who has decided to leave the company.
