Joey Levin is a Jewish-American businessman and the CEO of IAC. Levin was appointed to the position in June 2015, after previously leading the company's Search & Applications segment.[1]

Career[edit]

Levin graduated from the Jerome Fisher Program in Management and Technology from the University of Pennsylvania, with a B.S. in Economics from the Wharton School and a B.A.S. in Engineering from the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences.[2] Levin worked from 2001 to 2003 in the Technology Mergers & Acquisitions group for Credit Suisse First Boston (now Credit Suisse) in San Francisco.[2]

In 2003, Levin joined IAC, holding various roles, including Senior Vice President, Mergers & Acquisitions and Finance, before his appointment to CEO of Mindspark Interactive Network, an IAC-owned consumer software company now known as IAC Applications, in November 2009.[3] Levin then served as CEO of IAC Search & Applications, overseeing the desktop software, mobile applications, and media properties that at that time comprised IAC's Search & Applications segment: About.com, Apalon, Ask.com, ASKfm, Citysearch, CityGrid, Dictionary.com, Investopedia, Mindspark, PriceRunner, and SlimWare.[4]

In June 2015, Levin was named CEO of IAC and appointed to the company's Board of Directors.[5][6] The move was linked with IAC's decision to spin off The Match Group in an IPO, with IAC Chairman Barry Diller citing Levin's "youth, energy, and ability to develop" the assets remaining in IAC's portfolio.[7]

Levin is on the Board of Directors of Match Group[8] and Groupon.[9] He previously served on the Board of Directors of Tree.com from August 2008[10] until November 2014,[11] and served on the Board of Directors of The Active Network from February 2008[12] up until its sale to Vista Equity Partners in December 2013.[13]
