Jeffrey D. Warshaw, CEO, has 35 years building, acquiring, operating and investing in media businesses. Starting at age 19, Mr. Warshaw has run a number of successful entities with a focus on creating strong market positions and exceptional management teams. At age 28 in 1993, Mr. Warshaw founded Connoisseur Communications Partners, an owner and operator of radio stations, and he partnered with Tinicum Investments and later Abry Partners, LLC. Through disciplined acquisitions and operating management, Connoisseur Communications Partners grew to 35 radio stations and was sold in 2000 to Cumulus Broadcasting for over $250,000,000. Following the sale of Connoisseur Communications Partners in 2004, Mr. Warshaw founded Connoisseur Media, a multi-platform local media company with radio, streaming, and digital and traditional advertising agency businesses. Mr. Warshaw was a pioneer of combining digital with legacy media, founding Ferocious Media as a division of Connoisseur Media in 2010.

Michael O. Driscoll, our Chief Financial Officer and Director, has 39 years of experience in financial and Investment Management and currently serves as the EVP and Co-Founder of Connoisseur Media, where he started in 2004. Until December 31, 2021, Mr. Driscoll also served as the Chief Financial Officer of Connoisseur Media. 

Our board of directors will include Samuel Hendel, a co-founder of Dataminr, which he began with two of his former Yale classmates in 2009. CNBC recognized Dataminr on its list of Disruptor 50 companies, and in March 2021 Dataminr raised $475 million at a $4.1 billion valuation. In 2021, Hendel partnered with KKR to purchase KMR Music Royalties II, a unique catalogue of 62,000 music copyrights, from Kobalt Capital for approximately $1.1 billion.
