Turner has announced the appointment of Peter Knag as Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer of Turner. He will report to Pascal Desroches, who has been elevated to Chief Financial Officer, WarnerMedia and Turner Administrative Officer.

Prior to joining AT&T, Knag worked for Lehman Brothers and First Albany Corporation. Knag holds a Bachelor’s degree and a Master of Business Administration (MBA) from Southern Methodist University and is on the board of directors and treasurer of Vogel Alcove.
