Maurice van Sabben
Hello, I am Maurice van Sabben, a Board Advisor at Spectrum.
I am an international business executive with 20 years’ experience in the media and technology sectors.
I provide strategic services in all aspects of business development, sales, content rights, distribution and licensing for video entertainment providers. I have special affinity for high-quality engaging experiences that surprise audiences and that build on new technology and data. My experience is extensive in TV, VOD, OTT, mobile video, Paas solutions. VR is of specific interest to me.
My career covers corporate and entrepreneurial activities having successfully founded 3dotZero, a digital media strategy company. Before that I was President of National Geographic Ventures International overseeing National Geographic businesses outside the USA including Television, Digital Media, Home Entertainment, Music and National Geographic Interactive Platforms.
Prior to National Geographic I have held senior positions at IMG and APTN-owned SNTV, Three UK, ONO and a period at Fox Kids Europe (now part of the Walt Disney Company). I have learnt how to monetise content on technology platforms.
Given that content, rights ownership and technology are becoming increasingly central to business growth strategy I am keen and excited to contribute my energy and expertise to Spectrum.
