Wizard World has brought in Michael Mathews, an experienced Internet executive, as chairman of the board of directors. Mathews was most recently CEO of interclick, Inc., which provides data-driven ad solutions. He’s also had stints as President at Agency.com, and senior management positions at World Ave., CKS Group, and BBDO Worldwide.
Wizard World CEO Gareb Shamus described Mathews’ specialty as “guiding young, private-to-public digital marketing businesses to the hundred million plus revenue mark.”
Wizard World recently went public through a reverse merger (see “Gareb Shamus: The ICv2 Interview”).
