    Adam Smith Joins UPROXX as Chief Revenue Officer

    UPROXX, one of the world’s largest digital media and content companies, today announced that Adam Smith has joined its senior management team as Chief Revenue Officer. In this role, Smith will oversee UPROXX’s revenue growth and help explore new partnerships and branding opportunities in the digital space. He will be based in Los Angeles and report directly to UPROXX CEO Benjamin Blank.

     

    “Adam’s experience across diverse media properties and content platforms makes him a perfect fit for UPROXX’s multi-dimensional approach to telling stories that shape culture,” said Blank. “His deep sales and strategic background, combined with the invaluable relationships he’s built across the industry, will be a huge asset to UPROXX, and we’re all excited to welcome him to the team.”

     

    “I’m excited to help UPROXX continue to grow its influence as a trusted authority on youth culture,” said Smith. “Especially with the access and scale that UPROXX’s acquisition by Warner Music brings, the company has the makings of an unstoppable creative force.”

     

    Smith joins UPROXX from Condé Nast, where he oversaw West Coast video and L.A. sales. He previously spent eight years at Vevo, which he joined in 2010 as the company’s first sales resource on the West Coast. With Vevo’s expansion, Smith advanced to overseeing its national entertainment vertical and automotive track, as well all U.S. sales. Prior to Vevo, he spent four years at MySpace and two seasons with the Sacramento Kings.

     

    Smith holds a master’s degree from the University of San Francisco and a bachelor’s degree from UC Santa Barbara.

     

    UPROXX was acquired last year by Warner Music Group, providing the company with expanded resources and reach.
