Ross Levinsohn Joins Board of Vubiquity

Ross Levinsohn, former CEO of Guggenheim Digital Media and interim CEO of Yahoo, has joined the board of Vubiquity, a global provider of multiplatform video services.

Levinsohn also serves on the boards of Tribune Media, Zefr, YouTube multichannel network DramaFever, Millennial Media, NATPE and Scout Media, a male-focused MCN for which he’s also executive chairman.

He exited as head of Guggenheim Digital Media in June 2014. At Yahoo, before he was appointed interim CEO, Levinsohn was head of global media and executive VP of the Americas region.

Levinsohn is “one of the early innovators in the new media space and continues to be at the forefront as the two industries align,” Vubiquity chairman Phil Herget said in a statement. “Vubiquity continues to extend its reach in the global digital content marketplace, and Ross will bring valuable insight and deep experience to our board.”

“Vubiquity has already established itself as the leading provider of digital media services to content owners and service providers globally,” Levinsohn said. “With its deep relationships across the content supply chain and growing services portfolio, Vubiquity is poised for explosive growth.”

Levinsohn also spent six years at News Corp., serving as president of Fox Interactive Media and SVP of Fox Sports Interactive Media before leaving in 2005 and co-founding Fuse Capital, an investment and strategic equity management firm focused on digital media and communications companies. He also has held senior management positions with AltaVista, CBS Sportsline and HBO.

Last year Vubiquity hired Darcy Antonellis, former president and CTO of Warner Bros. Entertainment, as CEO.

Vubiquity investors include The Carlyle Group, Columbia Capital, Novak Biddle Venture Partners, Pioneer Venture Partners and Valhalla Partners.
