Chris Wronski a media entrepreneur, is the CEO of The Wellbeing Network and was the founder and the Chairman of Zone Vision which now operates under the name Chello Zone.[1]

Early life

At 20 years of age, Chris trained at the Overseas Film Training School in London’s Barbican district. He developed an interest in music and began managing bands and a small music studio in the late 80s.

Chris had the idea to use his contacts in the British music industry to sell music television programming to Polish broadcasters. The arrival of new satellite broadcasting technologies promised wider distribution possibilities and heightened the demand for television programmes and channels.

This was the beginning of Zone Vision which he founded in 1991.[2] He began selling TV programmes and distributing satellite channel brands across Eastern Europe growing it into a global business. Zone Vision eventually reached 200 million subscribers internationally with 18 regional offices, 12 channels brands and represented over 30 international brands for companies such as MTV, Eurosport, Discovery and Turner.

In 2005, Zone Vision, now called Zone Media was acquired by ChelloMedia,[3] the content division of Liberty Global. Rebranded as Chello Zone the company currently administers a portfolio of thirteen channel brands including JimJam, Horror Channel, Extreme Sports, Extreme Sports Channel HD and MGM. In addition to its own channel brands the company manages a number of channel services with a portfolio of 7 entertainment channels across 13 EMEA feeds with CBS Studios, including CBS Drama, CBS Action, CBS Reality, CBS Europa and Horror Channel. In 2014 AMC Networks, acquired ChelloMedia Holdings Ltd for over 1 billion dollars.

Chris is the current CEO of The Wellbeing Network, the world’s first global health and wellness platform that connects content, products and services across television, mobile and online.
