NEW YORK -- DISH today announced that digital media industry veteran Kevin Arrix has been tapped to lead the DISH Media Sales group, including its operations, analytics and advertising sales for DISH TV and Sling TV. He is the former chief revenue officer of mobile advertising platform Verve. Joining DISH as a senior vice president, Arrix will report to Warren Schlichting, DISH executive vice president of Programming and Media Sales, and president of Sling TV.

"Kevin brings with him a wealth of digital and mobile expertise that fits the progression of DISH Media Sales' offerings," said Schlichting. "Kevin will lead a dynamic team that has introduced industry firsts such as household addressable advertising on DISH TV, the rapidly evolving growth in Sling TV's programmatic sales and cross-platform addressability across both." While at Verve, Arrix was responsible for building out the mobile marketing platform's sales, sales operations and customer success services. Prior to Verve, Kevin was the chief revenue officer for Viggle Inc., a mobile-based entertainment rewards platform.

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
