605, an advanced data and analytics company focused on the media and entertainment industries, has hired Sal Romanello as general counsel.
At 605, Romanello will be focused on drafting and negotiation of client and vendor agreements relating to data and information licensing, and professional service agreements, as well as providing general legal support and counsel to the entire organization, the company said.
Prior to joining 605, Romanello was a partner in the Complex Commercial Litigation Practice Group at the international law firm of Weil, Gotshal & Manges LLP. He is also a member of the board of directors of the Fordham Law Alumni Association, and serves as chair of its Engagement Committee. He also serves as a member of the Rockville Centre Zoning Board of Appeals. Romanello has a B.A. in Political Science from Yale University, and received his J.D. from the Fordham University School of Law.
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 that provides census-based TV measurement.
