Stu set up and managed national video-on-demand operations from 2007-2011 as Vice President for Multi-Platform Publishing at HealthiNation, the health video network co-founded by Raj Amin and Tony Estrella with backing from Intel Capital and MK Partners. The company, which was named Media Brand of the Year for 2009, distributed its health and wellness videos on-demand to 32 million U.S. cable TV households, to 3 million viewers on the web, on connected TV services such as Roku, and in doctors’ offices and employee wellness portals.
Mag Rack & sportskool
As Vice President for New Media at Cablevision’s Rainbow Media (now AMC Networks) from 2001-2005, Stu was instrumental in the development and launch of Mag Rack, one of cable TV’s first video-on-demand (VOD) channels. The channel delivered 250 short-form videos each month to passionate fans of motorcyles, photography, guitars and yoga, among other subjects, and reached more than 10 million TV households. Mag Rack was a national Emmy Award finalist in 2004 for “Outstanding Achievement in Interactive Television.”
ExpressNet from American Express
In 1994 for Ogilvy & Mather Interactive and American Express, Stu was a managing producer of the ExpressNet travel library on America Online–more than 50,000 searchable articles from Fodor’s and Frommer’s guidebooks and Travel & Leisure magazine. ExpressNet was named to “Best Online Destinations” by Home Office Computing magazine and a “4-Star Site” by NetGuide.
At Prodigy Services Company, a joint venture of CBS, Sears and IBM, Stu produced Baseball Manager, a fantasy baseball game (now operated by GameLine Sports) that collects and reformats real-life baseball statistics overnight to create imaginary game results for thousands of players. The New York Times review called it “so addictive … that thousands of otherwise normal people are willing to risk friendships, jobs and even marriages to pursue it.”
To syndicate custom healthcare information to employee desktops, Stu helped develop a web publishing network reaching 40 corporate employee intranets, including WebMD, General Motors, Chevron and Lucent Technologies. (Acquired by ProAct Technologies Corp.)
