605, an advanced data and analytics firm focused on the media and entertainment sectors, has appointed Daniel Berg to the new post of chief technology officer.
Berg will oversee 605’s internal IT, cybersecurity and other key elements of 605’s products and report to company founder and CEO Kristin Dolan.
He is also late of companies that include Rockit Solutions (a former subsidiary of Rockefeller & Co Inc.) and First Reserve Corporation, where Berg had served as CTO and CIO. He was also a member of the Microsoft CIO Advisory Council from 2014 to 2015.
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.
In July, 605 announced a data-driven advanced ad partnership with Charter Communications.
“I am confident Dan’s deep expertise in business strategy, combined with his track record of success in bringing technology services and products from concept to deployment, are exactly what we need to move 605 forward and continue to grow our business,” Kristin Dolan, said in a statement. “As a business and technology leader, Dan is adept at aligning technology teams and deliverables with business and revenue goals.”
