Twitch has named noted online video executive Constance Knight its VP of global creators.
Twitch says the hire serves to double down on its commitment to creators amid an ongoing shift beyond gaming. Knight will be tasked with improving the Twitch experience for diverse creators around the world, the company said.
Knight most recently served as global head of video curation and short form content at Instagram, where she advised on product and partnership development and managed the editorial team for Reels. Prior to that, she led strategic growth initiatives for content creators and media partners at YouTube. Before transitioning to digital media, Knight was the VP and head of home entertainment at BET Networks.
“Creators are the heart and soul of Twitch, and as we continue to see more people finding their community on Twitch, now is the perfect time to add more support for global creators to our internal team,” chief content officer Michael Aragon said in a statement. “Constance is an experienced and passionate leader who brings a wealth of knowledge from across the streaming industry.”
