Marvel Entertainment has hired Shane Rahmani as its new Senior Vice President/General Manager of New Media.
“Marvel is one of entertainment’s most storied brands – a lifestyle to many – and I’m thrilled to help this team continue to develop and fulfill its new media ambitions,” said Rahmani. “From the Marvel curious to the Marvel obsessed, we’re determined to make the Marvel Universe that much more accessible across all the relevant new media platforms that count around the globe.”
New Media is a department within the company which handles the company’s digital platforms, video production, and general online content. In this newly-created position within the department, Rahmani will oversee the department with a focus on expanding its business and engagement.
He will work out of Marvel’s New York City offices, and report directly to Marvel’s President, Dan Buckley.
Rahmani comes to Marvel after serving as Chief Business Officer of CH Media – which includes brands such as CollegeHumor and Dorkly. He previously worked at Thrillist Media Group, MTV (as part of Viacom), and Microsoft.
