Hulu has hired Google’s Heather Moosnick to lead its content acquisition team. The new senior vice president of content partnerships will report to CEO Randy Freer beginning on Nov. 12.
“Heather is a highly strategic, creative and relationship-oriented executive who has spent her entire career driving change and innovation,” said Freer. “As Hulu looks to transition television from a gatekeeper-driven experience to one that’s led by the consumer, Heather’s leadership and fearless approach to evolving antiquated business rules make her a perfect fit for our team.”
In her new gig, Moosnick will lead and continue building Hulu’s content and network acquisition team and will work closely with the company’s originals, marketing, product, and technology leadership to create more personalized, localized and curated program offerings for consumers, per the Tuesday press release announcing her hire.
Moosnick was head of global business development, strategy and content partner management for YouTube TV and Google Fiber, including all TV networks and affiliates, at Google. Prior to that role, she was head of music label partnerships for YouTube. Moosnick’s resume also includes jobs at Warner Music Group, CBS Interactive and MTV Networks.
The former attorney is the co-founder of Women in Digital Media, a networking group for women in the digital entertainment industries. She sits on the Board of Directors for the Vineyard Theatre.
Moosnick holds a bachelor of science from Northwestern University and earned her Juris Doctor from UCLA School of Law.
