For the past several months, the expansion of apps and delivering quality content to our community has been a couple of our top priorities. Our goal is to create a platform where content creators can deliver their artistic works and build relationships with fans while giving our users access to unique content.
Bridging the digital divide continues to be a priority, therefore we have expanded our team and are today announcing the addition of Shahi Ghanem as chief strategist and executive vice president of marketing. Shahi will take our efforts in the expansion of apps, content and consumer electronics to a new level, and we are thrilled to have him join the team.
Shahi has worked with dozens of startups and has an impressive background in digital media, Internet advertising, consumer electronics and advanced technology development. Formerly President of DivX, Inc., a developer of video compression, digital rights management and media language technologies, he helped lead the company from a pre-revenue startup into a profitable, multi-national, public company. While with DivX, he was instrumental in forging relationships with several major Hollywood studios and every major chip and consumer electronics manufacturer in the world.
Recently, Shahi served as CEO of digital media start-ups including STL (helps Fortune 500 companies manage, distribute and measure digital assets), EmpowHER (a health media company dedicated to female health and wellness), and Brickfish (an Internet advertising and social media company that delivers campaigns and metrics to clients in the fashion, sports, electronics and consumer products industries).
