Serial entrepreneur joins well-funded startup that allows fans to pay for personalized video messages from 40,000 celebrities
Richard Rosenblatt, the co-founder of Demand Media and current chief executive of Whip Media Group, joined Cameo’s board of directors on Tuesday, people familiar with the company told TheWrap. The media startup adds Rosenblatt to its board as it looks to continue growing its platform, which allows fans to pay for personalized videos from their favorite celebrities and influencers.
A longtime entrepreneur in the Los Angeles startup world, Rosenblatt brings decades of experience spanning both the technology and media landscape to Cameo. Perhaps most famously, Rosenblatt was the head of Intermix Media when it was sold, along with properties like Myspace.com, to Rupert Murdoch’s News Corporation for $580 million in 2005.
