Discovery Communications has appointed former Viacom executive, Christopher McGrath, as senior vice president of data and analytics.
Reporting to chief technology officer John Honeycutt, McGrath will be responsible for the vision and execution of Discovery’s global data strategy, with a focus on driving innovation and growth across its brands.
According to the company, he will oversee a global group tasked with designing and delivering solutions that monetise Discovery’s insights and data assets in new ways.

“Chris’ expertise and strategic ability to implement solution-oriented technology across our business will allow us to scale and widen our digital footprint for deeper consumer engagement.”
