MBC recruits BET online chief to lead tech team
Medical Broadcasting Company (MBC) has tapped the former online chief of urban marketing giant, Black Entertainment Television, to lead its growing technology team.
Navarrow Wright, former chief technology officer for BET.com, signed on as SVP of MBC's technology division.
Wright told MM&M he plans to merge his mass-market media experience with his knowledge of the latest technologies to help healthcare marketers reach their target audiences.
“In expanding areas such as broadband video and mobile across multiple distribution platforms, consumers and physicians can have greater access to key information to make decisions,” he said. “I look forward to taking that to the next level.”
Wright's resume lists 13-years experience in the design and development of Web applications. While at BET.com, he was able to double the number of the Web site's registered users and unique visitors. He also served as VP of technology for 360HipHop.com, a start-up created by entertainment mogul Russell Simmons.
Philadelphia-based MBC has a well-rounded pharma client roster that includes clients
Merck, Eli Lilly, GlaxoSmithKline, Johnson & Johnson, Pfizer and Wyeth, among others.
