Chandler, AZ, June 11, 2014 – Internet media and content marketing firm Domain Media Corp. is proud to announce the appointment of a new member to the Company’s advisory board – Mr. Michael Sawtell.

Mr. Sawtell has over 25 years of executive leadership experience including 9 years as a C-level public company executive, and a demonstrated track record of growing companies. Mr. Sawtell was instrumental in driving    start up Local Corporation (FKA Interchange) from zero revenue in 2000 to a $20M annual run rate and a $23 million IPO in October of 2004. In 2005 Mr. Sawtell went back to the start-up world and founded DigitalPost Interactive where he developed the award-winning digital media sharing platform – TheFamilyPost.com. He later led the effort to acquire Rovion in 2010, which DigitalPost later sold to Local Corporation in 2011.

After successfully selling Rovion and the other DigitalPost properties in 2011, Michael rejoined Local Corporation as its President and COO. In the three years that he recently ran Local Corporation (2011 – 2014) Michael led organic revenue growth from a baseline of $77 million to a projected run rate of approximately $107 million, while turning the company consistently profitable on an adjusted EBITDA basis. Impressively, revenue per employee went from $328K to $1.2M during Sawtell’s most recent 3 year stint as President and COO at Local Corporation.

Mr. Sawtell stated, “I believe that providing high quality content within compelling vertical markets can provide a strong foundation for a successful internet company. I look forward to being able to provide valuable assistance to Chris and his team at Domain Media as they continue to work towards that goal.”

Michael has also held key leadership positions at Informative Research, a private mortgage information services company, as well as two major aerospace companies – Northrop Grumman and General Dynamics.

“Michael is a hands-on executive and extremely talented at growing companies and creating significant operating efficiencies. His experience and reputation are at the top of the Internet media industry and he is a very welcomed addition to our team. We look forward to working closely with Michael in expanding our business and are honored to have him join our advisory board,” stated Mr. Chris Kern, Domain Media Corp’s Founder and President.
