Chang will oversee all of the streaming platform’s sales activities with multichannel video and digital distributors in the U.S. She’ll be based out of the New York office and will report to Hoffman.

Chang is a veteran with over 20 years of experience in the industry. She previously served as president of distribution at Warner Media where she led distribution revenue for all HBO branded digital and linear channels, and navigated its subscriber and revenue growth, increased market share and improved profit margin.
