Viral video purveyor Jukin Media is launching an international licensing division, to be headed by David O’ Hare (pictured), formerly of Zodiak Clips and Getty Images.

Jukin Media’s multi-channel network has 500 million-plus monthly views on YouTube. The company licenses user-generated content that includes extreme sports, spontaneous caught-on-camera moments, fail videos, pet and wildlife videos, and licenses them to every U.S. network and cable station, as well as digital publishers, advertising agencies, brands and production companies.

“Having a presence on the ground in Europe will drive our continued growth,” said Jonathan Skogmo, founder and CEO of Jukin Media, in a statement.

This marks the latest in the rapid expansion of Jukin, which raised $1 million in its first-ever funding initiative in May and hired former MTV and  Lifetime programming executive Jessica Samet as its head of TV production to develop formats around short-form videos.

In April, it struck a partnership with dick clark productions.
