Sports-focused live TV streaming provider fuboTV has named Gina DiGioia Sheldon to fill the newly-created role of general counsel and corporate secretary. Ms. Sheldon will oversee all the company’s legal affairs from her base in New York, and report to CEO David Gandler. She will also be heavily involved in the public listing of fuboTV, which merged with FaceBank Group, Inc. earlier in 2020.
“Gina’s appointment comes at a pivotal time in fuboTV’s growth and I am thrilled to welcome her to the company,” said Mr. Gandler. “Her extensive experience in the media industry helping companies close transactions and diversify their business lines makes her a great asset as fuboTV prepares to enter the next growth stage.”
Ms. Sheldon boasts more than 20 years of leadership and legal experience, and arrives at fuboTV from her position as U.S. general counsel and chief operations officer for tech company Fiizy. She has served as general counsel at both public and private media companies, with experience across corporate and commercial transactions.
“I am very excited to join fuboTV,” said Ms. Sheldon. “I am impressed with the strength of the leadership team’s vision and look forward to serving as a key partner to achieve objectives and to protect the interests of the company and its stakeholders.”
