Chief Product Officer
Nick Nelson serves as the guiding force behind the innovation of OWNZONES’ suite of products and services. He is focused on both creating a better content-to-consumer experience by refining the company’s OTT interface and evolving the A/B testing framework and product development intelligence.
Nick is highly regarded in the industry for his knowledge in the building and rolling out of impressive OTT and streaming offerings. When he served as Head of Product Creative at Netflix, from 2012 to 2016, Nick transformed its Creative Services department from a process-driven acquisition operation to a highly strategic, cross-functional team focused on improving creative while operating at a global scale.
A strong believer in collaborative relationships, Nick recruited more engaged employees and grew his Netflix team from 5 to over 50. This was during a critical period of evolution for the global streaming service, which saw first-hand how team building is good for company culture and boosting the bottom line.
Nick previously held positions at other leading digital rights management organizations including Cognizant Technologies, Deluxe Entertainment Services and Ascent Media. Prior to joining OWNZONES, Nick served as the Owner of Technically Creative, a Los Angeles-based company he founded in October 2016.
Away from the office, Nick has spent the last 10 years honing his skills as a “Brewmeister.” He takes special pride in concocting his favorite style – pumpkin-flavored beer. On the opposite end of the fountain, Nick owns a milkshake shop with his family called Great Shakes with locations in Palm Springs and Riverside.
Nick is a graduate of the University of California, Santa Cruz, earning a Bachelor of Science degree in Information Systems and Technology Management.
