Brendon Thomas is Senior Vice President of Distribution and Business Development at Paramount Streaming. In his current role, Brendon is responsible for Paramount+ and Pluto TV’s rapid audience growth via partnerships with OEMs, platforms, and other strategic partners. Prior to joining Paramount Streaming, Brendon co-founded and served as CEO of Shindig, a crowdfunding platform. Shindig was acquired by content monetization platform provider Okanjo, where he then served as President until joining Pluto TV. Brendon and his team of ten help achieve that by growing global streaming distribution through deal-making, renewals, and partnerships across the Paramount Streaming portfolio of offerings, including and especially Pluto TV and Paramount+. Brendon’s efforts have helped secure and retain Pluto TV’s spot as a leading FAST service, and accelerated distribution of Paramount+ beyond all other SVODs: Paramount+ is the fastest growing SVOD in the last year.
