Over-the-top entertainment and technology company, Ownzones Media Network, has appointed former Netflix exec Nick Nelson as its head of product innovation.
Nelson will oversee the innovation of Ownzones’ suite of products and services and will report to chief technology officer Aaron Sloman. He will be based in Los Angeles.
“We are thrilled that Nick has joined us to further develop and refine our consumer OTT interface and user experience,” said Sloman.
“He’s highly regarded in the industry for his knowledge to build and rollout brilliant OTT and streaming offerings, most notably in the early days of Netflix and recently with Seeso.”
Nelson worked as head of product creative at Netflix from 2012 to 2016 and grew his team from five to fifty-plus employees as the SVOD giant expanded internationally.
Most recently, Nelson set up a company called Technically Creative and for the past year has consulted with NBCUniveral-owned over-the-top service Seeso, which looks set to shutter after a strategy change at parent NBCUniversal.
