Victor works at the nexus of media, marketing and technology, helping companies tackle online and mobile opportunities, serving as a strategic adviser and providing business development assistance.
He has been on the cutting-edge of media and technology since launching his career on Wall Street. Starting as the only PC-wielding member of an M&A investment banking team, he was an early adopter of the cell phone in 1988, an entrepreneur with a digital out-of-home video network for airports and retail in 2006, and chief operating officer of the first publisher of original magazine content for the iPad.
To all of his endeavors, he brings experience from roles across multiple industries and solid academic credentials, with JD/MBA degrees from Columbia University and a BA from Harvard.
He has been bridging traditional and digital media both at large, established companies and in entrepreneurial ventures. Even in traditional companies, he sought out unconventional and innovative opportunities and found creative solutions:
• IBM: he managed $1.7 billion in private equity and was one of the first investors in funds such as Blackstone.
• PepsiCo: he was head of M&A, pursuing food/beverage concepts.
• ABC Television: he did venture capital for the network before creating the first business plan for ABCNews.com in 1996.
• Time Inc.: As head of strategic planning, he led their largest acquisition in a decade while helping the magazines bring their world-renowned content to the web before the first Internet bubble popped.
