Joe Markowski

Executive Vice President, DAZN

Joseph Markowski serves as Executive Vice President at DAZN, overseeing partnerships, rightsholder activation, marketing, communications and strategy for the North American business.

 

In 2018, Markowski orchestrated the commercial and operational launch of DAZN in the United States. Under his guidance, DAZN became an immediate player in the media landscape by challenging the combat sports pay-per-view model and exclusively offering fights from Canelo Alvarez, Gennady Golovkin, Anthony Joshua, Bellator MMA and others at a low subscription price. In March 2019, DAZN expanded into the big four American sports leagues by launching ChangeUp, a nightly MLB whip-around show featuring live look-ins from all 30 teams.

 

Markowski also manages the DAZN Canada business, where the platform has collected an impressive set of premium sports rights including the NFL, Premier League, Champions League, Serie A and more.

 

Prior to his time in North America, Markowski ran the DAZN Japan business from 2016 to 2018.

 

Markowski currently lives in Brooklyn, and received his M.B.A. from Imperial College in London in 2015.
