The 614 Group has added three executives from the world of digital media to its board of advisors.
Chairman and chief executive of 24/7 Media David Moore, senior vice president of business development at About, Inc. Marc Goldberg, and senior vice president of publisher services at AOL Networks David Jacobs are each set to join The 614 Group’s board.
“Digital media is growing at an incredibly rapid pace and we need the best minds in the industry to help us create a vision and thought-leadership across a range of issues that this lightning-fast evolution has yielded,” says Rob Rasko, managing partner, The 614 Group.
“David Moore, Marc Goldberg and David Jacobs are stellar executives whose interests encompass the value chain. They strongly influence the interactive landscape and continue to drive the industry forward. I could not be more proud to have folks of their caliber and experience excited about – and deeply engaged in – our mission.”
Goldberg has served as senior vice president of business development at About Inc over the past four years. During his tenure he has spearheaded the acquisition of CalorieCount.com and ConsumerSearch.com. Along with his professional work in the field, Goldberg works as an advocate for the online advertising industry.
Moore comes from 24/7 Media where he runs day-to-day operations for the digital media firm. Before his work at 24/7, Moore held positions at both Viacom and Turner Broadcasting. Moore also serves on the boards of Local Matters and Advertising Education Foundation.
“Digital has erupted on the scene, changing and challenging traditional business paradigms,” said Moore.
“A deeply knowledgeable, hands-on practice like The 614 Group will serve as the missing support structure for companies that not only want to survive in this complex and fast-shifting arena, but thrive by leveraging all of the distinct benefits that interactive has to offer.”
Jacobs join the board with years of experience from working at AOL Networks. While at AOL, Jacobs has overseen the firm’s Advertising.com property. Jacobs also frequently serves as a speaker at advertising events and works with a variety of trade organizations in the field.
