“Endemol Shine and The Marketing Arm are responsible for some incredibly innovative and fun brand integrations, and I’m excited that their respective leaders will be joining us onstage at NAB Show New York for a keynote discussion,” said Chris Brown, NAB executive vice president, Conventions and Business Operations. “As content production evolves, producers and advertisers will continue to redefine their relationship with viewers, and Charlie Corwin and Lewis Henderson are at the forefront of that change.”
