CuriosityStream has named media, entertainment and digital education veteran Bill Goodwyn to the newly created role of Chief Revenue Officer and Executive Vice President of Strategy, Business Development & Partnerships. CuriosityStream President and CEO Clint Stinchcomb, to whom Goodwyn will report, made the announcement.
Stinchcomb said: “Imagine if Bill’s fellow Tarheel Michael Jordan returned to the NBA with no erosion in his physical skills. That is the comparative level of impact Bill can make on our global business lines. The CuriosityStream team was strong and today it got infinitely stronger. Bill is a consummate dealmaker whose relationships around the world and track record building high performance teams and businesses lends CuriosityStream a tremendous competitive advantage in the dynamic and evolving media landscape. Our success depends on our ability to rapidly expand our businesses in multiple directions all over the world and I am thrilled that Bill has agreed to lead the charge.”
In his new role, Goodwyn will oversee all revenue-generating strategy and execution worldwide. Goodwyn’s oversight encompasses global distribution including sales, marketing and partner channel teams, sponsorship, advertising and business development. He and his teams will develop and implement partnerships and strategic growth plans for the company.
Goodwyn is a 30-year veteran of Discovery, and has served in numerous executive leadership roles in digital media, television, and digital education. He currently holds the post of Vice Chairman of Discovery Education and was formerly President and CEO.
