Industry Veteran Joins in Newly Created Role of GM & SVP of Ranker Insights

Part of our focus for 2020 is to productize our first party data offering with Ranker Insights, which is the backbone of Watchworthy, a game-changing personalized TV recommendation app that we are launching this quarter.

Ranker, known as the world’s leading publisher for fan-powered rankings on just about everything, announced the continued expansion of its all-star team with the hiring of former Rovi/TiVo and Groove Mobile VP, David Yon, as General Manager and Senior Vice President of Ranker Insights.

Yon will be the evangelist for the development of Ranker Insights and go-to-market strategies, build revenue generating partnerships, and maintain a successful pipeline around Ranker’s emerging products.

“We’re thrilled to have a superstar like David who can bring solid product management expertise as we continue to expand in both the B2B and B2C marketplace,” said Clark Benson, Founder and CEO of Ranker. “Part of our focus for 2020 is to productize our first party data offering with Ranker Insights, which is the backbone of Watchworthy, a game-changing personalized TV recommendation app that we are launching this quarter. A mobile web version is in beta now and can be found here.”

With over 20 years of experience in the B2B entertainment data industry, Yon has led technology sales and management teams to launch innovative, award-winning products and generate new revenue streams for media and entertainment companies, including Rovi/TiVo, Groove Mobile, and LiveWire.

"I’m impressed with the amount of unique data from more than one billion votes Ranker has collected over the last 10 years, and how it compliments brands and studios on what their users consume,” said David Yon. “Coming from years of entertainment data experience, I can see how Ranker Insights can fill many of the ‘blind spots’ for our customers, and I’m excited for what the future holds."

Yon has a Master of Science (MSc) in Management from SKEMA Business School (Nice, France), and a BA in Financial Markets & Economics and a BA in Commerce from University of Economics (Nice, France).
