About our Panel
Kim Sarubbi is a savvy sales and marketing executive with 20 years of experience producing content for place-based media. With her roots in film and television, and realizing that there were a limited number of people who knew how to produce compelling content that could bring value to a network, Sarubbi focused her attention into the production of content for place-based media. She made it her prime focus to create digital content for out-of-home environments, while also selling advertising for the networks.
This experience has helped her to understand the importance of engaging content. Content has been under-represented for too long. She has made it her mission to bring content to the forefront and educate Networks on the importance of great content.
Ms. Sarubbi dove head first into place-based media back in 1992 when she began producing content for PetCARE TV, who remains one of her best clients. She was also instrumental in securing advertisers for the network. Since launching the company in 2001, Ms. Sarubbi has evolved Saddle Ranch Digital from a company focusing on content production for a handful of medical networks into an award-winning advanced media firm with a roster of global clients.
Ken Goldberg has been the CEO of Real Digital Media since 2004, where his experience in information technology, retail systems and entrepreneurship have all been put to use. Before joining RDM, Ken was co-founder and president of CFT Consulting, a leading provider of retail systems consulting, which was sold to Answerthink in 1999. Ken was a member of Answerthink’s leadership team and was instrumental in driving retail-focused offerings across the company’s solution groups. Ken had been a manager in Deloitte’s national retail practice before starting up CFT. He started his career as an equities analyst at Standard & Poor’s, and was an executive in a 21-store apparel chain before entering the consulting field. He has also been an angel investor and advisor to a number of startup companies. To learn more about Ken’s thoughts, visit his blog and Twitter Feed.
