Jaunt VR hires former Hulu, Vessel exec to drive revenue

Feb 8, 2017

Jaunt VR hires former Hulu, Vessel exec to drive revenue February 8, 2017 Parks: US churn rate for OTT services is 19% Jean-Paul Colaco Virtual reality firm Jaunt has appointed former Hulu and Vessel executive Jean-Paul Colaco as first chief revenue officer. Colaco will be responsible for global revenue generation across the company and will report directly to Jaunt president and CEO, George Kliavkoff. Between 2007 and 2013 Colaco worked as senior vice president of advertising at Hulu, where he grew annual ad revenue to more than US$500 million. In late 2013 he became a founding member of the senior executive team at Vessel – the subscription, short-form video service that was set-up by former Hulu CEO Jason Kilar. Vessel was acquired last year by US telecoms giant Verizon , which bought the startup for the technology and software that underpins it. The service itself was shut down on October 31. Before Hulu, Colaco spent more than 10 years in several roles at The Walt Disney Company, latterly working as senior vice-president of business development. “With broad experience and a proven track record for generating revenue within the digital video space, he [Colaco] is the perfect complement to our management team,” said Kliavkoff. The new hire follows Jaunt’s appointment of the former finance boss of French video-on-demand site Dailymotion, Fabrice Cantou, as chief financial officer last month. It also comes amid a period of growth at the firm, with Jaunt recently announcing a scripted production slate for 2017, a partnership with English Premier League club Manchester City, deals with The Walt Disney Company and the expansion of its Jaunt ONE camera rental program. Jaunt was founded in 2013 and develops the hardware, software, tools, and applications to enable ‘cinematic VR’. It aims to make content available across all the major VR platforms – including Google Daydream and PlayStation VR. Headquartered in Palo Alto, California, Jaunt has a European business office in London and an engineering and development office in Amsterdam. Last year Jaunt also established Shanghai-based Jaunt China, a VR company formed in partnership with Shanghai Media Group and China Media Capital.
