605, the advanced data and analytics company focused on the media and entertainment industry, said it has appointed five execs to help form its senior leadership team, reaching into areas such as analytics, technology, client services and finance.
New York-based 605 launched late last year following the acquisition of Analytics Media Group (AMG) by Dolan Family Ventures, the newly formed investment fund run by former Cablevision Systems execs Kristin and James Dolan.
The new appointments at 605 are:
-Ray Casazza, senior vice president of finance and administration. He previously was VP of financial planning and analysis at Cablevision Systems and Altice USA (which acquired Cablevision last year).
-Colleen Moraghan, senior vice president of data solutions. She most recently was VP of audience measurement at Cablevision.
-Chris Frommann, group vice president of technology. He most recently was founder and VP of engineering for AMG.
-Peter Foley, Ph.D., group vice president of analytics. He joins 605 after serving as director of analytics at AMG.
-Gaurav Shirole, group vice president of product and client solutions. Shirole was a founder of AMG and served as VP of product and client services.
Those execs join 605’s leadership team, comprised of founder and CEO Kristin Dolan; co-founder and president Ben Tatta; EVP of client solutions Chauncey McLean; and SVP of marketing and communications Charlstie Veith.
“Following the acquisition of AMG, we have built a strong management team at 605 – everyone on the team is deeply embedded in the industry and well-suited to drive success for our growing company,” Kristin Dolan said, in a statement. “We are very pleased with the depth, quality and tremendous momentum we have created thus far.”
“We have been working closely with everyone on the senior leadership team at 605, providing clearly defined roles and responsibilities and we feel confident that we have the best team in place to spearhead every facet of our business,” Tatta added.
605 is code for “DCV,” or Data Co. Ventures, the original project name of Dolan Family Ventures. DCV is also the Roman numeral equivalent of 605.
