Studio One Networks today announced that Devin C. Johnson has been named chief operating officer of the company, which specializes in brand-aligned content creation and distribution.

Johnson will be responsible for strategic and operational leadership for Studio One Networks’ partnerships with online publishers and brand narjeters, in addition to overseeing the management of the company’s finances, marketing, business development and technology.

He most recently served as general manager of Digital Works@NBCU, previously known as NBC Digital Networks, where he worked with household name advertisers to create white label digital platforms to serve specific audiences. Before that Johnson led NBCUniversal’s Digital Innovation team, having previously held roles at Tribune Interactive, PepsiCo and Unilever.

“Studio One Networks has enjoyed rapid growth over the past couple of years, launching programs from clients such as Intel, Symantec, Nestlé and Procter & Gamble, while increasing our distribution network of online publishers by 20 percent – and this momentum needs to be cultivated,” Andrew Susman, CEO of Studio One Networks. “Devin’s expertise is well-aligned with our business operations, as well as our broader mission. Bringing him on board as COO is key in ensuring that we have the talent and resources to increase our capabilities and thought leadership as we take the company to new heights in 2012 and beyond.”
