Paramount Global announced a pair of leadership appointments on Monday (May 16) to further its international expansion of streaming products like Paramount+ and Pluto TV.
Marco Nobili (pictured left) will take on the role of executive vice president, international general manager for Paramount+, where he’ll lead the strategy and execution of the streamer’s worldwide expansion. Meanwhile, Olivier Jollet (pictured right) has been promoted to executive vice president, international general manager of Pluto TV, with a mandate to oversee the FAST channel’s growth.
Previously, Nobili served as senior vice president of international market, data and analytics for Paramount Global’s streaming division. He also previously worked at Netflix and Amazon. Jollett, meanwhile, previously worked as senior vice president and general manager of Pluto TV internationally.
Both Nobili and Jollet will report to Raffaele Annecchino, president and CEO of international networks, studios and streaming, and to Tom Ryan, president and CEO of streaming.
Annecchino said in a news release that this year will be an important one in Paramount’s streaming strategy, with Paramount+ and SkyShowtime expected to launch in 60 markets by the end of the year and Pluto TV continuing to expand as well. Paramount+ is scheduled to debut in the UK, other European countries and South Korea this year, and in India in 2023. Pluto TV, meanwhile, is set to launch in the Nordics this month, through a partnership with NENT Group.
