YouTube network Maker Studios has made a big hire to run its growing international business. The company announced that former AOL executive René Rechtman has joined as President of International and will oversee Maker’s international growth strategy and development of strategic partner relationships overseas. That role will be important going forward, as Maker works with content creators in 100+ countries, and more than 60 percent of its viewership comes from outside the U.S.
