Fabric Names Jean Abreu Chief Revenue Officer

Media and entertainment catalogue management firm Fabric has named Jean Abreu as its chief revenue officer, responsible for the strategic growth and sales of Fabric’s products. Abreu has more than 30 years of experience running sales with deep customer and personal relationships with Hollywood studios, content owners and streaming platforms in the M&E sector.

She joins Fabric from Deluxe, where she was the SVP of sales. Abreu spent most of her career in sales positions at Sony. She began her career in the physical media supply chain and moved to the digital landscape in 2012 with Sony NMS. Regardless of format, her focus has always been working with customers to enable the most efficient workflows for content distribution.

“Having worked with Jean for a number of years when she was at Sony and I was running Rightsline, I know about her deep understanding of digital supply chains,” said Rob Delf, CEO of Fabric. “Her industry knowledge and network will be a tremendous asset to Fabric as we continue to grow the business.”

Abreu added: “I joined Fabric because I believe in Rob’s vision and the product, which provides normalised, clean, accessible metadata that can be relied on as the source of truth. Enriching that metadata via Origin makes Fabric unstoppable.

“Having worked in the content distribution supply chain for many years I am ready for a new challenge, helping content owners and platforms solve the problem of locating and standardising metadata assets that are strewn over multiple legacy systems. I am excited to join a company that has a supportive culture that empowers passionate employees and allows them to thrive and succeed in a respectful environment.”
