TiVo said Roz Ho has joined the company as senior vice president and general manager, consumer and metadata.

In that role, she will lead those teams and oversee the company’s strategic product roadmaps. Ho will be based out of  TiVo’s San Jose office and report to Pete Thompson, TiVo’s executive vice president and chief operating officer.

She joins TiVo after serving as head of product management for Ericsson TV and video products, including Mediaroom and MediaFirst.  Prior to that, Ho was with Microsoft, which sold its Mediaroom IPTV platform to Ericsson in 2013.

TiVo and Rovi completed their merger last fall.

“As a seasoned technology veteran, Roz brings extensive experience managing engineering teams and the incubation of key product launches, making her an especially good fit for this executive position at TiVo,” Thompson said in a statement. “Her impressive corporate background, leading large global teams and driving the delivery of prized software and services will be key to this role and we’re pleased to have her on-board to further our consumer and metadata businesses.”
