VICE Media has announced that Dominique Delport has been named Chief Revenue Officer and President of International. Delport was previously serving as Global Managing Director of Havas Group.
As Chief Revenue Officer and President of International, Delport will spearhead the generation of revenue across linear, mobile and digital, and oversee the youth media brand’s ongoing expansion throughout the globe.
VICE Founder Shane Smith said: “Dom Delport is a true legend in the industry. His profound understanding of content both in the digital and terrestrial spheres is unparalleled. As the media landscape continues to change and shift, that knowledge will prove priceless going forward and help direct us in our mission to become the most relevant media organization for young people in the world. Dom also understands companies, agencies and large brands better than anyone else out there. He’s a brand whisperer that understands the crucial intersection of content and platform. The fact that he is coming to VICE to round out our Dream Team (and I’m talking the Jordan, Magic, Bird era dream team), shows our commitment to making VICE the media company of the future. I couldn’t be more proud to welcome Dom to the VICE family, or more excited to see where the next epoch in our evolution takes us.”
Delport said: “I am excited and proud to be joining such an iconic and inspirational company. Few media brands in the world have that strong DNA and global appeal. The role fits like a glove, as it unites all of my passions – journalism, content creation, digital and international business development.”
