SPT promotes networks digital exec

Sony Pictures Television has promoted Mark Jocson to senior VP, digital media and game, networks.

Jocson has been with Sony for six years, most recently in a VP post, but has now added responsibility for SPT’s mobile games studio division to his existing role as leader of SPT Networks’ digital product and platform initiatives.

He has overseen a second screen app for Hannibal for AXN channels worldwide, launched an SVOD service for the Animax channel in the UK and OTT services for Canal Sony in Latin America and Korean entertainment channel One in Singapore.

“Mark has been instrumental in unifying the digital presence of our nearly 100 channels around the world and has created innovative brand and channel extension opportunities,” said Eric Berger, executive VP, digital networks at SPT.

“As we evolve our business into a world where TV Everywhere and direct-to-consumer services are ubiquitous, I know Mark will be an exemplary thought leader and executer.”

Jocson was previously at Disney Channels Worldwide’s digital media division.
