Google: VP of Product Management
The decade-long Google vet founded the Chromecast business, the $35 adapter that shook up the connected-TV space, and also leads development and deployment of the Google Cast initiative allowing content owners to more easily reach digital platforms. The group he runs represents two core pieces of the Internet giant’s bid to reach living-room televisions.
Trends to watch: “In 2015, I look forward to TV shows, movies, music and other entertainment on-demand, over-the-top being made available to consumers at an accelerated pace. We’ll be bringing new experiences to Chromecast users around the world like board games, dance/karaoke apps, and others that are only possible through the seamless integration of your phone, tablet and laptop with your TVs.”
