Jessica Casano-Antonellis has joined SiriusXM as senior vice president and head of communications.
Reporting to Chief Marketing Officer Denise Karkos, she will be responsible for all of the company’s communications, including strategic communications, brand reputation management and media relations.
Karkos said Casano-Antonellis will bring a “wealth of strategic communications experience” to the role.
“She will be an incredible asset to the company and will play a key role as we continue to tell the story of SiriusXM as a leader in audio entertainment,” said Karkos.
Jessica joins SiriusXM from The Walt Disney Company, where she had a significant role in the company’s pivot to streaming, first with the launch of ESPN+ in 2018, followed by Disney+ in 2019.
“After more than four fulfilling and busy years leading communications for The Walt Disney Company’s portfolio of streaming services, I’m excited to begin this next adventure working with Denise, CEO Jennifer Witz, and the rest of the leadership team at SiriusXM,” said Casano-Antonellis.
Before joining Disney, Casano-Antonellis headed global communications for the video sharing platform, Vimeo. Prior to Vimeo, she spent nearly 10 years on the agency side at Text100/Archetype, a global technology public relations firm.
Casano-Antonellis succeeds Patrick Reilly, senior vice president of corporate communications and PR, who is set to leave SiriusXM after 17 years. Reilly will stay with the company through July to help with the transition, according to a SiriusXM press release.
“Patrick has been a valuable member of my leadership team and we thank him for his dedication to the company and to his craft.” said Kakos.
