Moviepilot has hired Chad Bowman as VP of sales to oversee a growing sales division out of its Venice headquarters. He’ll report to Moviepilot CEO and co-founder Tobi Bauckhage, who made the announcement on Wednesday.

Bowman will immediately take over Moviepilot’s branded video department and further establish media partnerships with entertainment, consumer goods and gaming brands.

Bowman previously served as the senior sales director for Electus Digital, managing all media sales and content partnerships for their websites such as CollegeHumor, Cracked, WatchLoud and Dorkly.

“Chad brings a real understanding of the entertainment space to Moviepilot,” said Bauckhage. “His relationships in the industry and experience with branded content is what brought us together in the first place. But his enthusiasm for what we’re doing at Moviepilot and his feel for our brand of fan-centric content made this a perfect match.”

Moviepilot averages about 25 million unique monthly visitors and has become one of the top Facebook native video publishers, topping more than 50 million views in July. As a moderated open-posting platform offering fans a voice and mass distribution, Moviepilot has also become a leader in the influencer marketing space, partnering with top movie studios to connect passionate fans with the content they love.

Bowman brings a branded content acumen and more than 10 years industry experience to Moviepilot. He’ll work closely with its expanding video department to deliver exciting offerings to movie and television studios, as well as brands targeting a young and entertainment-savvy audience.
