Online education content publisher KNeoMedia Limited (KNM) has appointed industry veteran Sander Schwartz as senior advisor of the company. In his new role Schwartz will head KNM’s advisory board.
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.
Currently, Schwartz is the president of Grom Social, the COPPA-compliant social networking site for kids ages 6 to 16. Earlier, he served as president of FremantleMedia Kids & Family, president of Warner Bros. Animation, and as president of family entertainment for Sony Pictures.
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.
