LOS ANGELES, APRIL 14, 2014 (ADOTAS) – Evolve Media LLC., an integrated digital media company focused on enthusiast publishing, announced today that veteran technical executive Travlin McCormack (pictured) will join the company as Chief Technology Officer. Located at Evolve Media’s headquarters in Los Angeles, McCormack will oversee all aspects of the company’s technology functions.
McCormack joins Evolve Media with fifteen years of leadership experience in technology development and operations across various industry sectors, including software service, finance, and social networking. Most recently, he served as the founding CTO for CareerArc Group, parent company of Internships.com, TweetMyJobs.com, and CareerBeam.com. Having built the technology team from the ground up, McCormack’s contributions helped catapult CareerArc’s properties into booming sites for job-seekers. Internships.com is now known as the world’s largest internship marketplace, with approximately thirty percent of all college students visiting the site within a given year. Additionally, TweetMyJobs.com pioneered the social distribution of jobs, while CareerBeam.com became the first successful virtual outplacement offering.
Prior to CareerArc, McCormack served as CTO of Slingshot Labs, a technology incubator dedicated to building and developing new web ventures for News Corporation. Hired at the inception of the company, he built and managed the technology department, while helping to establish five well-trafficked web properties within the company’s first year of operation.
McCormack contributes to the emerging tech community by mentoring for the USC Viterbi Startup Garage, a technology accelerator program that helps entrepreneurs to further their business and technology goals. Similarly, he serves on the advisory board for the LA CTO Forum, Southern California’s largest private network of software executives.
“As a premium publisher, it’s vital that our technical division is led by someone highly innovative, forward-thinking, and always ahead of the curve,” said Brian Fitzgerald, President and Co-Founder of Evolve Media. “With Travlin’s successful track record of building IT departments from scratch, it’s evident that he encompasses all these traits and more—making him the perfect fit for our executive team. We are eager to utilize his fresh, ‘hit-the-ground-running’ approach as Evolve Media continues to expand.”
“It’s clear that Evolve Media is making exciting changes and shifting the way that online publishing and cutting-edge advertising solutions are presented. I’m excited to lend my own skill set to take the company’s technical strategy and product development process to the next level,” said McCormack.
