Vevo appoints Nielsen veteran Jonathan Carson as its first chief revenue officer. Carson will lead the music video and entertainment company’s global sales team across advertising and brand partnerships, and will effectively fill some of the duties held by former Vevo sales chief David Kohl, who left in April. “In the coming years we’re going to see a convergence of video marketplace television, online and mobile collapsing into a single ecosystem, and that’s going to have a dramatic impact,” says Carson, who is based in New York and reports to Vevo president/CEO Rio Caraeff. “Vevo is extremely well-positioned to take advantage of that.” Carson most recently served as CEO of digital at Nielsen. A thought leader in social media marketing, he also co-founded BuzzMetrics, the trade group Word of Mouth Marketing Assn., interactive development firm Intercities and music industry platform OuterSound.com.
