Jeremy Doig, CTO of Disney Streaming, joins from Google

Disney has hired Jeremy Doig, an 18-year Google veteran, as its streaming organization’s new chief technology officer, who will lead the global technology teams that operate Disney Plus, Hulu, ESPN Plus and Star Plus.

Doig is taking on Joe Inzerillo, a key architect of Disney Plus and Mouse House’s other streaming services, who joined SiriusXM in January as chief product and technology officer.

Doig will join Disney next month, reporting directly to Michael Paull, President of Disney Streaming.

At Google, where Doig was most recently VP of Engineering, he led the development of new standards for video technologies that support YouTube and the Chrome browser. These included the adoption of compression approaches for audio and video, media streaming protocols for real-time and on-demand delivery, and spatial experiences. Before joining Google in 2004, Doig held technology positions at the BBC, Multimedia Corp. (a subsidiary of the BBC Interactive Television Unit), Online Magic, an early internet and e-commerce company, and Microsoft.

“Jeremy is a true visionary who has been at the forefront of making online video streaming possible over a nearly 30-year career at the intersection of technology and media, and we are thrilled to welcome him to the Disney Streaming leadership team to be called,” said Paull. “We have an exceptional team of global technologists, and Jeremy’s experience leading transformational initiatives in complex and dynamic environments will make him an incredible asset to leading this world-class group.”

Doig said in a statement, “I am thrilled to be joining The Walt Disney Company at this pivotal moment in the entertainment industry. The penetration of streaming services in the market has reached new heights and there are so many opportunities for technology to push boundaries and create stunning new viewing experiences for Disney Plus, Hulu, ESPN Plus and Star Plus subscribers. Disney’s strong brands, content and talent are second to none and I look forward to working on this incredible adventure immediately.”

Disney Streaming is part of Disney Media & Entertainment Distribution (DMED) led by Kareem Daniel. DMED is responsible for monetizing content from Disney’s studios and networks.
