Revolt Names Derek Ferguson Chief Operating Officer

Derek Ferguson, a longtime advisor to Revolt founder and chairman Sean “Diddy” Combs, will join the cable network as its chief operating officer.

Ferguson is expected to partner with Keith Clinkscales, the network’s chief executive officer, the company announced Tuesday.

Ferguson previously served as the Chief Growth Officer of Combs Enterprises – the umbrella organization over Sean “Diddy” Combs’ brands and a major shareholder in Revolt – where he advised Combs on  new business and investment opportunities. He joined Bad Boy in 1998 as Chief Financial Officer.

Prior to joining Combs Enterprises, Ferguson was the Vice President of Finance and Operations for BMG Special Products, a division of BMG Entertainment. He also was the Chief Operating Officer of Urban Profile Communications Inc., a startup magazine he co-founded with Clinkscales. After selling that company in 1991, Ferguson joined Bain and Company. His career began at Coopers and Lybrand  as an auditor and mergers and acquisitions analyst.

“Derek has been one of my most trusted advisors for nearly 20 years and I know that he will bring the same leadership and expertise to Revolt,” said Combs in a statement.  “He possesses a deep knowledge and understanding of my businesses that has resulted in some of my most successful deals across all of my brands. I believe alongside Keith they will continue to position Revolt as a leading media company for the millennial generation.”

Revolt launched on Comcast and Time Warner Cable systems in October of 2013.
