Domain makes Planet founder new-media prexy

Greer most recently served as chief operating officer of L.A.-based Digital Planet, which he co-founded.

Big field

“In this ever-growing field of dot com this and dot com that, few executives have the proven track record of Joshua,” said Digital Domain CEO Scott Ross. “He brings the perfect blend of entertainment, storytelling, technology and interactivity to Digital Domain.”

Since its creation in 1995, DD’s new media arm has created a series of CD-ROM titles for both Lego and Mattel Media, including the popular Barbie Fashion Designer.

The company is expanding into the emerging broadband Internet arena, completing its first broadband interactive commercial for General Motors.
