Rosenberg was previously general manager and senior vice president of advertising while Shannon was general manager and senior vice president of content and service. Both joined the company in 2012.

Rosenberg will now lead Roku’s content distribution and related services in addition to its advertising business.

Roku said that the move combines the staff and resources of advertising, content distribution and related services and will accelerate Roku’s ability to build innovative platform products, drive user engagement, and monetise active accounts.

“Steve joined Roku in the early days of our monetisation strategy and was instrumental in developing key advertising, content and services initiatives as well as recruiting top talent like Scott,” said Roku CEO Anthony Wood.

“We are grateful for the contributions Steve made and wish him the very best as he moves on to his next great adventure.”
