Christopher Rae brings experience leading high-growth operations for digital media companies. As VP of Global Operations for Verimatrix, his team’s focus since 2005 helped scale Verimatrix from startup to becoming a global leader in content security, protecting premium movies and television on hundreds of millions of consumer-facing devices at major telco, cable, satellite, and Internet pay-TV operators in 120+ countries.
Earlier at Entriq (now Irdeto), he advised brands such as NBC Universal, MTV Networks, Viacom, Canal+, DreamWorks, MLB, WWE, International Olympics Committee, Tencent, and Prince’s NPG Music Club to secure, monetize and launch high-traffic streaming media services. He also developed web services for NaviSite Streaming Media (now Akamai), web applications for CMGI’s entertainment portal iCAST.com, and co-founded ClearKey Solutions, an early SaaS-based digital rights management and commerce platform.
Christopher earned his BA from the University of Maine, and his MBA from UC San Diego's Rady School of Management.
