Online education content publisher KNeoMedia Limited (KNM) has appointed industry vet Sander Schwartz as senior advisor to the company. In his new role Schwartz will head KNM’s advisory board.
Schwartz is currently president of Grom Social, the COPPA-compliant social networking site for kids ages six to 16. Previously, he served as president of FremantleMedia Kids & Family, president of Warner Bros. Animation, and as president of family entertainment for Sony Pictures.
Schwartz’s new position will see him advise the company as it grows the consumer appeal of its suite of edutainment products and broadens its distribution globally. KNM recently launched an iOS app and has placed its KNeoEd and KNeoESP products into the New York public school system.
KNeoMedia sells its edutainment products and apps on a micro-subscription basis through its KNeoWORLD.com games portal and various apps stores, as well as through other distribution agreements and education departments.
