Key Accomplishments

A digital veteran who’s spent 15+ years building Internet products for businesses and consumers, I've served as a serial C-level executive: COO and Digital GM for Newsweek and The Daily Beast; Chief Product Officer for NewsRight; and CTO for New York Magazine and Thomas Publishing. Formerly, I was a senior manager in KPMG Consulting’s content practice, advising The New York Times, Philip Morris, and JPMorgan Chase on digital strategies. A longtime teacher of digital media strategy at Yale and NYU, I have frequently taught digital management seminars in Europe and Asia. Joe earned a bachelors degree in physics from N.C. State, where he conducted research in low temperature semiconductors, and MBA with honors from Duke.

How I like to work with people As a Cofounder

Deep experience in all aspects of the digital media space, including product, audience, bizdev, marketing, and advertising. I've been a serial digital media CTO and while I'm years removed from doing hands-on development (other than basic SQL and Python spelunking), I'm very familiar with building teams (onshore and offshore) and cloud-based infrastructure (served on Amazon's cloud computing advisory board for two years). I also have relationships at high levels throughout the media industry. And I am very much a hands-on player in that I continued to keep my skills sharp no matter how senior my role. My preferred role is product or general management, because that best leverages someone who's uber-cross-functional.

Lothar has excelled in very challenging environments, and has a great mix of deeply technical skills as well as business savvy that are esse ... ntial for success in a start-up.

Rick Aronstein
They're my friends
A high priest of product, Rick has forgotten more about product management than most product "experts" know. He's a results-focused product ... exec who's been in an array of high-growth companies and quickly is able to clarify strategy and get the product machine in motion. I look forward to supporting his next venture.
