Vevo has further expanded its UK team with the appointment of Richard Brant as UK Advanced TV director.
Brant will look to build on the music streamer’s increasing profile that has seen Vevo’s UK connected TV viewership grow by 24% year-over-year.
Brant joins from Dentsu Aegis Network, where he spent two years building out its CTV proposition and vision as Director of AV Product. Prior to this, he spent six years in various roles at Sky, where he was behind Sky AdVance, which uses Sky’s TV and ad viewing data to help advertisers carry out campaigns in the digital domain, both within and outside of Sky’s services.
“We’re really looking forward to Richard joining our team,” said James Cornish, VP International Sales, Vevo. “This year, Vevo UK celebrates its 10th anniversary and the next decade will see CTV play a defining role in our expansion strategy. Richard’s experience building out advanced TV products, particularly from the buyer side, comes at a pivotal time for us as we focus on bringing music video to where our audiences are across CTV.”
Vevo has recently established new partnerships with Samsung TV Plus, Hisense, and VIZIO.
