Entertainment and media music agency Mibe Music is launching a new strategic development division, with Mibe co-founder Mike Amoia at the helm.
In his new role, Amoia (pictured) will target strategic partnerships, new platform technology and investment opportunities to build on Mibe’s track record supplying music for programs including unscripted titles from Viacom, Jupiter Entertainment, Blackfin and Glass Entertainment, and series including Ink Masters, Love and Hip Hop, Steve Austin’s Broken Skull Challenge, Southern Charm and Married to Medicine.
The producer and entrepreneur recently departed from Switchblade Productions, a prodco he co-founded in 2010, following his time with agency and post-production facility Vidiots.
His executive producer credits at Switchblade and Vidiots include Dirty Money (Discovery), How Close Can I Beach (HGTV), Hero House (FYI), World’s Toughest Mudder (CBS), Men of March (CBS) and Being Liverpool (Fox).
The new division at Mibe will be announcing new partnerships and personnel appointments in the coming months.
“We are grateful for our unscripted peers and network partners that have been huge champions for Mibe and a big part of the company’s rapid success,” said Amoia, in a statement. “To continue to expand and scale at our current rate requires a dedicated division and team focused on creative partnerships, investments and targeted new technology that will tee us up for our future long-term growth.”
The division launch follows a recent Mibe partnership with New York-based entertainment and media fund DCR Finance Corp., which will see Mibe working to determine DCR’s decisions about buying into film and television projects involving music and publishing rights.
