Thanks to Thomas’ efforts, Starz entered into new, expanded multiplatform agreements with both DirecTV & AT&T U-verse in the past year in the wake of a 2011 deal with Verizon. His knowledge of technology trends is deep, having amassed more than 25 years experience working at companies like Times Mirror Cable, ESPN, InterVU and Akamai. Moreover, he oversaw the launches of Starz Play and Encore Play, the nets’ authenticated online services, with a number of key distributors. And when it comes to mentoring, his son’s achievements are at the top of the list. “After 18 years serving as mentor/father, my son Parker James completed his freshman year at The University of Chicago and is thriving,” he says. “I could not be more pleased.”
