David Gandler, CEO / Director / Co-Founder

David Gandler was appointed as our CEO and director in April 2020. Gandler is the co-founder of fuboTV, the live TV streaming platform that is transforming how people watch sports, news and entertainment, and has served as its CEO since January 2015. Under Gandler’s leadership, fuboTV has quickly evolved into a leading virtual MVPD with a focus on innovation.

fuboTV launched in 2015 as a streaming soccer service and today is a sports-focused cable TV replacement for the entire family. In April 2020, fuboTV closed a merger with FaceBank Group, Inc. to create a leading digital entertainment company, combining fuboTV’s direct-to-consumer live TV streaming platform for cord-cutters with FaceBank’s technology-driven IP in sports, movies and live performances. Through the merger, fuboTV began trading on the OTCQB and intends to uplist to a major stock exchange in the coming months.

Popular with cord-cutters, fuboTV is consistently first to market across a number of areas including product and technology (first and still only vMVPD to stream in 4K), advertising (launched dynamic ad insertion in January 2018 ahead of most competitors) and content (distribution agreements with 100+ channels and 770+ local network stations in 99% of the U.S.; its own fubo Sports Network with original programming). Forbes named fuboTV to its Next Billion Dollar Startups list in 2019.

Prior to founding fuboTV, Gandler had a prolific advertising career with more than 15 years of video sales in local broadcast and cable TV within both the general and Hispanic market, including at Scripps Networks Interactive, Time Warner Cable Media Sales and NBCUniversal’s Telemundo Media.

Gandler was recognized as a leading exec in Variety’s 2020 and 2019 Dealmakers List and named to the 2017 Broadcasting & Cable Power 100. He is frequently quoted in major publications and has been a featured speaker at leading industry and banking conferences.
