Greg Bond takes the newly created post at Jukin of VP of global licensing, overseeing and coordinating operations between the firm’s LA headquarters and its satellite offices in New York and London.

He was most recently at Wazee, previously known as T3 Media, working with the company’s content suppliers, which include film and TV studios, broadcast and cable networks and OTT platforms.

Bond will be based in LA and report to Cameron Saless, chief growth officer at Jukin.

The company has also promoted Andrew Dignan to VP of licensing and David O’Hare to VP of international licensing as part of an expansion and reorganization of Jukin’s licensing division.

“The creative landscape is changing rapidly, with buyers putting a premium on engaging, organic, shareable video content,” said Bond. “I’m excited to help Jukin expand and continue to satisfy the global creative community’s tremendous appetite for UGC (user generated content) video.”

Jukin licenses short-form user-generated videos and maintains a library of more than 30,000 UGC clips for licensing.

“The demand for Jukin’s content has grown by more than 300% over the past two years thanks to an amazing acquisitions team and the hard work of our licensing team led by Andrew and David,” said Saless.

“Bringing additional talent like Greg on board will add depth to the team and allow us to accelerate our expansion into new segments and territories across the globe.”
