Brightcove, Inc., an online video platform, appointed Marc DeBevoise as CEO and Board Director. DeBevoise will succeed Jeff Ray and assume his responsibilities on March 28.
DeBevoise brings more than 20 years of experience in technology, media, direct-to-consumer and streaming to Brightcove. He previously served as the Chief Digital Officer of ViacomCBS, CEO and President of CBS Interactive and held leadership roles at Starz and NBCUniversal.
During his tenure with the company, DeBevoise positioned CBS as a leading multi-platform content company with a top 10 consumer Internet portfolio and a leadership position in ad-supported and subscription direct-to-consumer streaming.

“We are still in the early days of the streaming video and device revolutions, especially in terms of enterprise adoption,” said DeBevoise in a statement. “Brightcove enables any enterprise, brand, media entity or content creator to create and distribute content on their own terms and capture their own streaming future. There is simply no better time to be a distributed, agnostic, video platform.
