CuriosityStream Taps Bakori Davis as MD, Head of International


CuriosityStream has named Bakori Davis, an A+E Networks UK alum, to the newly created position of managing director and head of international.

Davis will focus on leading the expansion of the brand, currently reaching more than 13 million paying subscribers, across all global markets and platforms. He has oversight of all international commercial operations, including channel distribution, ad sales, marketing, content licensing and the development of digital platforms, and Davis is charged with securing and negotiating new distribution deals and developing strategic business partnerships worldwide.

He will report to Bill Goodwyn, CuriosityStream’s chief revenue officer and executive VP of strategy, business development and partnerships.

Most recently, Davis was partner and managing director of the international media services firm Niche Media Global, which he co-founded. Prior to that, Davis was VP of commercial operations at A+E Networks UK.

“Bakori’s new role signals our commitment to growing the reach of CuriosityStream’s trademark factual entertainment to regions around the world,” said Goodwyn. “He has a stellar track record of working with global partners to create value for their platforms, viewers, customers and stakeholders. This, coupled with Bakori’s deep experience in building both teams and strategic relationships, will help us accelerate our expansion into key markets.”

“With original high-quality programming and content that are second-to-none, CuriosityStream leads in a space that has clear demand among both distributors and viewers in today’s dynamic international marketplace,” said Davis. “I’m thrilled to join this all-star team to help expand CuriosityStream’s phenomenal brand experience to partners across the globe.”
