Fullscreen Bolsters Media Cred With New Engineering VP
Los Angeles-based YouTube network Fullscreen has bolstered its team--and media credibility--with a new hire, the company said Wednesday. Fullscreen said it has hired Tim Mohn, the co-creator of the HBO GO app, and former Vice President of Technology for NBCUniversal/Comcast as its new Senior Vice President of Engineering. Fullscreen, which is headed by George Strompolos, said that the move will help it push Fullscreen's technological innovation to the "next level". Fullscreen's Strompolos has been hiring a significant number of industry insiders as part of its growth, most recently hiring CAA vet Larry Shapiro last month as head of its talent operations.
