CEO - Elation Media
Alternative Media PartnersLos Angeles, CA
Full Time Job
Your strong operational knowledge and experience in media has more than prepared you to lead this boutique-size global streaming network, from content creation, distribution and monetization to e-commerce and direct sales, ad sales and live events.
In other words - Elation Media's Chief Executive Officer.
Elation Media is re-launching in Q2 of 2017 with over 200 hours of video in its legacy library, with one of the founders of HBO as its chairman, and with $2.25 million in capital.
FY 1, we anticipate 10 full-time employees plus independent contractors, growing to 25 full-time employees FYE5. On your first day, you will be responsible for recruiting almost every position.
So if you are interested in working for a sprawling enterprise with layers of management and thousands of employees, well, this may not be right for you.
The company is private; however, its largest shareholder, Alternative Media Partners, intends to go public when the timing is right, currently targeting late 2017. Elation Media will own a small number of shares in AMP.
Your primary responsibility as President/CEO of Elation Media will be to direct the company, inside and out, to align with your vision, as approved by the board, for the company's future. This includes guiding other executives and high level officers along a main objective and working to increase business outside of the company.
Secondary responsibilities are to encourage and ensure excellence in ElationTV's products, people and processes. You often will be required to represent the company, sometimes with a high level of public visibility. Therefore, you typically will be required to attend important events such as public meetings, international conferences, and public events.
Budgeting, forecasting and meeting those numbers is another area over which you ultimately will be responsible. You initially will have the support of the company's comptroller, the CFO of our key investor, outside accountants and other consultants. ElationTV projects hiring its own CFO FY3.
You will analyze the risks involved before making any major purchase or investment and advise or report to the board as to the potential for return on the investment.
As Elation Media's CEO, you also must be able to take in a large amount of information and develop a big-picture perspective to make precise and strategic decisions about the direction of the company.
Your command of the English language must be impeccable and world-class.
You must possess superior skills to work with and inspire a broad range of people and personalities, and a strong ability to resolve or prevent conflict. Your inter-personal skills are highly refined, as is your ability to communicate publicly.
Year 1 base salary is between $125-165,000, depending on the usual factors. Plus stock, plus benefits, etc. Company plans to be headquartered in Los Angeles, although some operations may originate in Sedona, Arizona.
ElationTV targets the global holistic consumer market, millennials and other market segments who are passionate about natural foods, health and lifestyle, world peace and enlightened (so-called ''conscious'') news and entertainment.
And if you, too, are interested in all or some of these genres, we'd like to hear from you
