Digital media and content company Uproxx has named Charlie Corwin as the first appointment to its new advisory board.
Corwin (pictured) joins Uproxx after leaving his role as CEO of Imagine Entertainment in April. His primary focus will be helping to steer Uproxx’s expansion into television and film. The announcement comes on the heels of Uproxx’s acquisition by Warner Music Group (WMG).
Prior to Imagine, Corwin was co-chairman and CEO of Endemol Shine Americas, overseeing the merger and integration of Endemol and Shine in North and South America. He also co-founded the film and TV prodco Original Media.
“Charlie has been at the helm of some of the biggest brands in entertainment and is a known innovator,” said Uproxx CEO Benjamin Blank, in a statement. “We’re now living in an era when more traditional platforms must merge with new ones. As such, it’s critical to have leaders who can see three or four moves ahead. Charlie is one of those people, and we’re thrilled to have him as part of our team.”
“The power of the Uproxx brand to attract pioneering personalities is one of the main reasons we brought the company to Warner,” added Max Lousada, WMG’s CEO of Global Recorded Music. “Charlie is an inventive leader and his expertise will be invaluable as Uproxx expands its ability to create stories and conversations that influence culture.”
