Senior Director, OTT Video (CBC Gem) | Canadian Broadcasting Corporation
Roma Kojima is Senior Director, OTT Video, in charge of the CBC Gem service. Her mandate is to oversee the evolution and growth of the CBC Gem brand – extending Canada’s Public Broadcaster into the rapidly evolving digital video space.
Roma began her media career in 2000 at Carat Mumbai. At Mid-Day Multimedia (India), she worked on most aspects of print publishing – as a journalist and copy editor, in ad sales and even branded event management . Switching gears to digital, as Director, Marketing and Partnerships at Interactive Ontario, she worked to support the growth of the province’s digital media companies within national and foreign markets.
Prior to joining the CBC, Roma spent seven years in various roles at Rogers Communications Inc. Canada, including digital strategy, business development and innovation enablement for the Media division, and was part of the team that launched the big data solutions practice in 2014. She also built and managed the company’s first cross-functional, virtual sales team responsible for the growth of the consumer wireless e-Comm channel in an innovative model combining strategy, operations, creative services and data-driven experience optimization.
Fun fact: Roma can’t smell skunks, which is basically a superpower if you live in North America.
