Jon Shaver has joined Comcast Corp.’s Comcast Media Center as director of content development.

Shaver had been chief operating officer at Product Information Network.

In his new role, he will support the CMC’s efforts to increase content available for video-on-demand, high-speed data and other nonlinear-content offerings.

“Jon’s experience on both the operator and cable-programming side combine with his operations and financial-management expertise to make him a great resource for content providers and for assisting Comcast Cable [Communications Inc.] in identifying and acquiring content that will enhance the value of Comcast’s services,” Comcast senior director of strategic business initiatives Bonnie Cleaver, to whom Shaver will report, said in a prepared statement.
