Following its inception as a venture-capital firm in Silicon Valley in 2010, Viki has quickly emerged as one of the top multi-language video streaming platforms online. Psy's "Gangnam Style" music video, for instance, was translated into 20 languages, while the K-drama "Playful Kiss" was made available in 56 different languages.
The current CEO of Viki is Tammy Nam, who was promoted from the position of chief marketing officer (CMO) in January 2015.
