Congratulations to Ross Levinsohn


Dear Investors, Partners and followers of Maven: I was excited to hear the news that my longtime friend, colleague and Maven board member, Ross Levinsohn, has been appointed CEO of the Los Angeles Times. A number of you have asked what this news means for Maven and Ross’ ongoing involvement with us.

Ross continues to contribute to Maven in his role as a member of our board of directors and as a strategic advisor helping us shape our distribution partnerships. Maven’s vision and strategy is to work with a broad group of partners who can help amplify the voices of our publishing partners. In addition to his typical duties as a Maven board member, Ross facilitates conversations with major distribution partners, which included introductions to the LA Times parent company, Tronc, over a year ago. We plan to continue our discussions with them, as with other potential partners.

James Heckman, Founder and CEO
