Australian video streaming and syndication company Spondo appoints former Time Warner and Turner Broadcasting Senior Executive Peter Brack to its Board of Directors. Mr. Brack, also known for his publicly listed companies Redgate Media and One Media Group, establishes a beachhead for Spondo in Asia.
Peter Brack’s distinguished media career began when he led the expansion of Turner Broadcasting’s content channel offerings into Asia, including the launch of the CNN and Cartoon Network. Mr. Brack then held senior executive roles at Time Inc. International, where he was responsible for the revenue and overall profitability of TIME & FORTUNE’s Asia editions, overseeing the Hong Kong, Singapore, Tokyo, and Sydney offices.
Most recently, Mr. Brack was co-founder and CEO of two companies, both of which went public on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange. He is an active member of the internet and digital media communities in New York, Los Angeles and China.
“When Spondo was first introduced to me it resonated because it’s front and center in the area where content meets technology, specifically where the monetization of content takes place using technology,” said Mr. Brack. “I’m placing a bet on Spondo. I like the team, I like what they’re doing, I love Australia and I’ll be digging in and helping as much as I can.”
Spondo had been seeking a Board member with strong, international media, M&A and strategic expertise to complement its existing leadership. Mr. Brack fits the bill perfectly.
“Peter Brack joining our board further enhances the collective intelligence of this company,” said Spondo CEO and Executive Director Chris Adams. “His ability to think about and help us execute on the future of digital content distribution cannot be underestimated in its importance, especially as Spondo aims to be a true global company. You cannot be truly global unless you are in Asia.”
Mr. Brack, who is an American based in Hong Kong, will assist the company, not only at a strategic level – helping to analyze and penetrate global markets – but also provide an all important beachhead for the company as Spondo expands into Asia. This appointment follows the company winning a spot in the prestigious Red Herring Top 100 Asia and Red Herring Global 100 Awards in 2013.
