Dan Dubelman is an innovative, new-media marketing executive with true leadership qualities. He is a high-energy, and self-directed manager who uses his analytical abilities to break down problems and offer strategic solutions. As the first ever head of Fox Kids Online Entertainment, Dan worked closely with operations, technology, IT and the legal department to develop cutting-edge kid-safe entertainment that built the foundation for the future while supporting the existing needs of the Fox brand. In 1996 as Manager of Online Entertainment for Fox Kids in Los Angeles, he served on the Global Online Task Force for News Corp, where he interacted with Rupert Murdoch and the top executives at News Corp regarding new-media partnerships, eCommerce, customer support, site optimization, quality assurance, user experience, etc .

Dubelman had a deep passion for community building from the beginning, recognizing the value of establishing a two-way communication with the customers. At Fox, he learned that a strong, online community is a key component in successful eCommerce. Technology provides unique, scientific methods to reach niche audiences in meaningful ways, provided the marketing department understands the possibilities and requirements as the tools expand. Today, there are unprecedented ways to gather, analyze and interrupt the data. Targeted ads on Facebook provide opportunities to exploit this information. As an avid user of Facebook and Twitter, Dan has the background to develop strategy and practical tactics to support the overall vision.

Dan also has experience in traditional media. Dubelman started as a child star; he won a Gold Lion at the Cannes Film Festival. Growing up around movie sets, ad agencies and production offices, Dan learned the business from many different perspectives. As new-media grew, Dan saw the marketing opportunities and understood that the technology could provide an opportunity to build a niche markets through reasonably priced scientific experiments in the real world.

While Dan has broad knowledge with respect to sales, marketing, business, and production, he also has very specific insight into new-media, which gives him an advantage with regard to needs of the customer. Dan is able to establish metrics that help survey the competitive landscape, in an effort to identify future trends. At the same time, he has a history making tight deadlines and staying on budget. His trademark has been to deliver high quality product by successfully merging the creative work with the business thinking. Dan is willing to relocate.
