NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Aug 8, 2011) - Media Ventures Group, a company that specializes in driving revenue and business growth for clients in the sports, media, entertainment and non-profit industries, has hired David L. Cohen as Vice President of Digital Strategy and Business Development, effective immediately. Cohen brings with him a decade of digital media executive experience managing online properties for major media entities.

Reporting to founder and CEO Richard Yaffa, Cohen will lead Media Ventures Group's digital strategy efforts, overseeing development of proprietary digital platforms and new business relationships that help build and monetize communities of fans, donors, activists, customers and supporters.

"We're very excited to add David to our leadership roster as he brings experience that is extremely relevant to the core of our business," said Yaffa. "David's deep expertise in sports media and digital development -- particularly in helping organizations capitalize on the strength of their fan base -- is a key addition to our existing capabilities and will be a valuable asset for partners and clients."

Cohen comes to Media Ventures Group from Major League Baseball Advanced Media (MLBAM), where he was Director of the Partner Solutions Group. In his role, Cohen oversaw business and content relationships with dozens of baseball and non-baseball clients, including MLB teams, TV networks, sports leagues, athletes, musicians and non-profit organizations.
