KVH Industries named Candice Pascal vice president of content acquisition, where she will head the company’s efforts in managing commercial maritime distribution rights for entertainment content.

Pascal, an experienced licensed-content executive based in Los Angeles, becomes KVH’s key person for securing and managing rights to the studio and independent film and television content that will be delivered via KVH’s new IP-MobileCast content delivery service.

“We are thrilled to have Candice join KVH and optimize the content and program offerings for the maritime audience of IP-MobileCast,” KVH Media Group managing director Mark Woodhead said in a statement. “With Candice’s expertise in content rights management and her experience developing programming for the cruise ship industry, we know she will create the must-have programming that mariners working on commercial vessels worldwide will want.”

Pascal has entertainment industry experience handling non-theatrical, home video, digital and television distribution strategy, as well as acquisitions, licensing and rights administration. She has worked at major film studios such as Paramount Pictures in Hollywood, as well as for independent film distributors. Most recently, Pascal developed and oversaw maritime content and business strategy matters, including licensing and acquisitions, for Global Eagle Entertainment in Irvine, Calif.

“I look forward to optimizing the offerings and the programming for the IP-MobileCast service and being part of this exciting development in providing engaging content for the maritime industry,” Pascal said. “KVH is unique in its approach to bringing content to seafarers, and it will be a pleasure to work with studios and content providers to ensure their material is distributed legally to seafarers on commercial vessels worldwide.”
