NPN Media Hires New Head of Distribution

MIAMI, FL--(Marketwire - Jun 20, 2012) - John Cuddihy, President of NPN Media, today announced the hire of Tom Barreca as the Senior Vice President of Distribution. In this role, Barreca will be responsible for all content distribution to media outlets, websites and other relevant partners throughout the U.S. Barreca will also work in tandem with Cuddihy to chart and drive the company's strategic direction and relationships in the larger marketplace. Cuddihy says, "I am excited to have Tom on board. Beyond his media knowledge and multi-platform expertise, Tom brings years of digital experience, deal-making, and commercial creativity for some very popular media brands."

An industry veteran, Barreca brings a wealth of experience and relationships across the digital and content distribution landscape. Prior to joining NPN Media, Barreca was Managing Director, New Business Development at NASCAR Media Group (NMG), NASCAR's strategic content, digital and programming arm. Before NMG, he helped monetize large libraries and expand the digital footprint of several well-known media/television content-players, including Martha Stewart, World Wrestling Entertainment, AMC Networks and Cartoon Network. "NPN is a rare gem and asset base," says Barreca. "It's hard to find bodies of high-quality, popular video and such excellent story-tellers in long and short form under one roof. Their worldwide focus on reinventing the content model and a leadership team driven to tackle expanding digital and international markets are a natural fit for me."
