CollegeHumor CEO Paul Greenberg Steps Down
Paul Greenberg, the chief executive officer of InterActiveCorp’s CollegeHumor, has stepped down. CollegeHumor co-founder Ricky Van Veen said that Greenberg will be replaced with two executives from Electus. Electus is a movie and TV studio that InterActiveCorp also owns. Electus’ chief operating officer Drew Buckley and corporate development VP Shane Rahmani will fill in that spot.
“It’s been a terrific three years at CollegeHumor, and I decided it was time to move on to a new challenge. I’m very proud of everything we accomplished, and I know the team will continue to be successful,” said Greenberg in an e-mail interaction with AllThingsD.
Before joining CollegeHumor, Greenberg used to work at Time Inc. and TV Guide Digital. While working at CollegeHumor, Greenberg pushed the company to syndicate their content into multiple places. CollegeHumor is now one of YouTube’s most popular producers and some of their videos are now being sold to their 15 million monthly visitors. The “Jake and Amir” web series has been turned into a 30-minute mini-film that they sold on their website and on Facebook. CollegeHumor is also now selling a full-length feature film called “Coffee Town” on iTunes and Amazon.com.
