Christopher Barry

Managing Director, International Strategy and Digital Media
AETN is building up its team of digital heavy-hitters, and Barry is the latest addition. After nine years as a digital pioneer at Sundance Channel, Barry in April jumped to AETN, where he’s developing global strategies and overseeing the company’s mounting international digital operations including Web site operation, digital distribution, broadband, mobile and VOD.
