Paramount Global


President & CEO, Streaming

Ryan, long a digital-media and e-commerce entrepreneur, is in charge of the Paramount+ subscription service and free, ad-supported Pluto TV. And he’s done some heavy lifting, overseeing the rebranding of CBS All Access as Paramount+ in early 2021, the expansion of its content slate and international rollout and continuing to grow Pluto’s worldwide user base. This summer, he launched an update to the Paramount+ platform that integrates Showtime in a bid to boost bundle subs. He also helped negotiate a pact with Walmart to include Paramount+ as a perk in its new Walmart+ membership program. Ryan signed on in 2019 when Viacom paid $340 million for Pluto TV, which he cofounded and led as CEO.
