I joined Redbox in 2017 as Chief Strategy and Digital Officer. And in this role, I currently oversee all of our growing digital businesses which include our transactional video on demand service, our recently launched ad-supported linear TV service and video on demand businesses, and our digital media business which includes digital-out-of-home. I have had the pleasure of leading the launch and growth of these businesses and work with a stellar and passionate team to that end.
I came to Redbox a background in both digital media and entertainment, with a focus on early-stage companies. I’ve held a variety of roles in mobile entertainment at Helio and Virgin Mobile, digital video at Fullscreen, Warner Bros. Digital, and Netflix, and media at product-placement focused marketplace, NextMedium. I love working in both early-stage and digital as those companies provide a great environment to learn and grow, to have more exposure to more parts of the business, and to have an opportunity to truly make an impact. And what I’ve learned most from those experiences is the importance of culture, empowering people to collaborate together and do their best work in a dynamic and rapidly changing environment. And I’ve found that once you’ve experienced a great culture, it will be something you seek throughout the rest of your career.
I feel like I have found that culture in my time at Redbox. We are a team of talented, smart and passionate individuals that are curious and continually look to improve our products and processes, to create better customer experiences, and to continually innovate new ways for our customers relate to Redbox. We are a diverse team that come together to challenge each other and share ideas in an effort to create, with many opportunities to learn and contribute, as we have launch and grow our digital businesses and seamlessly integrate those new businesses with our established DVD rental business.
Together, we have built a transactional video on demand service, recently launched an ad-supported on demand and free linear TV service, grown our digital advertising business, and continued to improve our DVD rental business, and I am excited to be a part of the team as we continue on our mission to make it ridiculously cheap and easy for America to get the home entertainment it wants most.
