Pocket.watch — the kids and family entertainment company — announced Xavier Kochhar as its first ever chief operating officer and chief financial officer. As the company’s first COO and CFO, Kocchar will lead the company’s major business units, including direct-to-consumer, content sales and distribution, advertising, consumer products, gaming, and creator partnerships. Kochhar will also head the corporate development, strategy, and finance divisions of the company.
“Xavier’s vast experience in corporate strategy and development, operations, and finance in companies ranging from startups to Fortune 100s is precisely what pocket.watch needs as we consider all the opportunities in our next phase of growth,” says Chris M. Williams, founder and CEO of pocket.watch.
