Advisor to the CEO, Starz
Over the past 12 months Huguez has helped Starz lock in several key distribution deals, including a major agreement with Cox Communications. With that important deal, the MSO became the first distributor to launch Starz’s PLAY TV Everywhere services. Expect to see more agreements with MVPDs soon, as he secures additional distribution for PLAY. On diversity, Huguez says the industry generally does a good job of hiring and supporting it, but it tends to fall short when it comes to the higher levels. “The only place that is lacking is in the boardroom,” he says.
