“Michael is a high-level strategist and a successful leader. His business acumen and strategic thinking have contributed greatly to the success of Shout’s overall business. He has driven the growth of many business verticals by super-serving our content partners and maximizing business opportunities. All of this and his strong leadership skills have made him an invaluable leader at Shout!,” stated Gene Pao, EVP of Strategy and Digital at Shout! Factory.
“After nearly 20 years at Shout! I remain energized and excited by the opportunity to not only connect fans with the movies and series they love, but to also introduce them to new ones that just might become the classics – or cult favorites – of the future,” said Ribas.
Ribas joined Shout! Factory in 2003 and most recently served as Vice President of Marketing. Before Shout, he held editorial and product-management positions for WetFeet in San Francisco.
