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.”
