Russia’s Internet Video Association has named former CTC Media executive Askar Tuganbayev as CEO.
Tuganbayev said he would use his position to further the cause of legal online video consumption in Russia and fight piracy. He replaces Mikhail Matytsin, CEO of consultancy Rumyantsev and Partners for a five-year term.
The Internet Video Association was created last year to further the cause of legal internet video services in the country. Members include RuNet, 1tv.ru, Amediateka.ru, Ivi.ru, Megogo.net, Molodejj.tv, Now.ru, Tvzavr.ru, Viaplay.ru and Zoomby.ru.
Tuganbayev was co-founder of Russian video site RuTube and served as director of strategic development for CTC Media from 2010-12.
