Former MTV Networks International CEO and chairman Bill Roedy has joined the board of Mind Candy as non-exec director.
Under Roedy's leadership, MTV developed a global operation that now includes 200 channels in over 200 countries and 33 languages. The networks now reach a potential audience of over two billion people, making it the largest in the world.
As non-exec director, he will help Mind Candy as the company expands globally, develops new brands and launches linear entertainment such as Moshi TV, cartoons and films.
Michael Acton Smith, CEO of Mind Candy, said: “It’s an honour to have Bill join us here at Mind Candy. He is a fantastic businessman with a fascinating story. We look forward to benefiting from his rich and varied experience as we expand into many new areas of the entertainment industry.”
Bill Roedy added: "Mind Candy is a very impressive operation. Moshi Monsters is on the way to becoming a global 'tour de force'. It will be an exciting ride, alongside the expert leadership of Michael and his team."
