fuboTV is adding its first chief strategy officer to the live TV streaming company’s management team with the appointment of sports media executive Hannah Brown. Effective immediately, Brown is based in fuboTV’s New York City headquarters and reports directly to David Gandler, co-founder and chief executive officer.
In her new role, Brown is tasked with all strategic development and execution as fuboTV accelerates its sports-first cable replacement business in the US and enters new territories internationally.
Since November 2017, Brown served as senior vice president, corporate development at Relevent Sports Group, where she was responsible for executing and delivering development opportunities either via mergers and acquisitions or organic development. Prior to Relevent Sports, Brown spent almost 10 years at Sky, most recently heading business development where she led investments and partnerships with start-up and emerging sports businesses. While at Sky, an early fuboTV investor, Brown was appointed as a board observer for fuboTV.
“We are thrilled to continue working with Hannah, first as part of our board through Sky and now in-house at fuboTV,” said Gandler. “Hannah’s longtime support for our vision and her expertise in corporate strategy for media and sports companies are valuable additions to our executive team. I look forward to Hannah’s guidance as we continue to innovate and grow fuboTV both in the U.S. and abroad.”
“I am delighted to be joining fuboTV,” said Brown. “At Sky we were incredibly impressed by David and his team’s tenacity, allowing them to get fuboTV off the ground in the most competitive and valuable media market in the world. Their ability to execute brilliantly under resource and time pressure was a standout. In three years fuboTV has taken market share in the US vMPVD space with their laser focus on customer requirements. The business has developed significantly over the last 12 months and I’m very much looking forward to contributing to the next stage of its development.”
