XpanD Makes Bold Strategic Move: Names Jonathan Ross President of Content & Distribution
Marking a strategic step forward as the emergence of 3D for television broadcast and Internet streaming becomes a reality, XpanD, the world’s leading developer of 3D active-shutter glasses, has appointed Jonathan Ross as the company’s first worldwide President of Content & Distribution.
Ross joins XpanD having previously managed international Digital Cinema deployment and operations for 20th Century Fox during such recent global blockbusters as Avatar and Ice Age 3 in 3D.
Ross brings more than 18 years experience in operational, managerial, production, creative, strategic planning and new business development positions across the film, television, cable and new media industries, both internationally and domestically. Prior to his most recent position with 20th Century Fox, Ross served as the Assistant General Sales Manager of Theatrical Distribution for Fox Searchlight Pictures, where he helped to distribute such critically acclaimed box-office hits as Little Miss Sunshine, Juno and Slumdog Millionaire.
In 1999, Ross founded ROQ Group, a boutique management consulting firm, which he ran for more than five years before joining Fox. With ROQ Group, Ross led engagements with such diverse clients as the New York Times Digital, MP3.com and Louis Vuitton, Moet-Hennessey (LVMH), among others. Ross has also previously held business development and strategy roles with BMG Entertainment and Showtime Networks.
As XpanD’s President of Content & Distribution, Ross will be responsible for generating content from third-party producers and developers that will be compatible with XpanD’s industry-leading line of 3D active-shutter glasses. Ross will also work closely with technology OEMs and integrators globally to ensure that a steady supply of entertainment and alternative content is made available to a vast range of products and services using XpanD’s proprietary 3D solutions.
“3D is here to stay and XpanD’s global domination of the 3D active-shutter glasses market speaks to the company’s superior technology and commitment to innovation,” Ross said. “My goal is to help transform XpanD into a household brand name and make it synonymous with 3D, like Google has become to search or Xerox is to the photocopy. I look forward to further consolidating XpanD’s leadership position across markets where 3D is being utilized today and in the future, including theatrical, broadcast, home entertainment, consumer electronics, corporate, gaming, Internet and mobile, educational and many more.”
“With the skyrocketing popularity of 3D technology, XpanD is challenged with establishing and maintaining relationships with the content creation community as more and more 3D content is being developed,” said Maria Costeira, CEO of XpanD. “Jonathan Ross is an immensely accomplished and talented professional who will bring a wealth of experience to our company and will benefit us greatly as we continue to work closely with content developers around the world.”
