Tony Goncalves

United States



EVP / Chief Revenue Officer

Goncalves’ career has been riding the rising tide of the streaming business. In 2018, AT&T appointed him CEO of Otter Media, its joint venture with The Chernin Group (TCG). AT&T subsequently bought out TCG’s share, then put Goncalves in charge of streaming service HBOMax, which launched in the wake of the pandemic and sat side by side with theaters as WarnerMedia’s primary movie distribution outlet. In August 2020, AT&T restructured its leadership once again, naming Goncalves EVP and chief revenue officer of WarnerMedia, with a purview that includes U.S. advertising sales, networks and HBO Max distribution along with Otter Media. As AT&T prepared to spin off Warner­Media into a joint venture with Discovery, it sold off Otter holdings including anime streamer Crunchyroll, which went to Sony in August.
