Whitney Wolfe has been busy acting as the CEO of the Bumble, a social networking app with a feminist twist, but recently she was appointed to Imagine Entertainment as a member of their board of directors. Being appointed to this position makes her the first woman to ever play a role on the board of Imagine Entertainment. Imagine Entertainment was founded in 1986 and has created many different types of original programming including television shows and movies. Recently, the company acquired Jax Media. Jax Media is responsible for popular shows such as “Ful Frontal With Samantha Bee”, “Broad City”, and “Inside Amy Schumer”. With the acquisition of Jax which features such strong female fronted programming, Whitney Wolfe will add a lot of valuable insight to Imagine Entertainment.
Brian Grazer, one of the co-founders of Imagine Entertainment, believes that Whitney Wolfe will bring an original and fresh perspective to the company that previously consisted solely of men on their board of directors. The accomplished co-founder respects and admires Whitney Wolfe for her vision and original thinking when it comes to business. She created an empowered community that is exceptionally strong and exists on a global level. By bringing a woman onto their team at Imagine Entertainment, particularly Wolfe, Grazer believes he is also bringing in a fresh perspective with a relevance to the current audience they are working to design entertainment for.
