New Venture Helps Brands Connect and Engage with Fans Across YouTube Community

New York, NY – January 23, 2018 - AMG/Parade is pleased to announce the formation

of a new investment and strategic sales partnership with Made In Network, a Nashville-based video-first media company, to develop brand channels on YouTube, including concept creation, channel management, video production and influencer marketing.

AMG/Parade will now sell custom brand channels in addition to offering impactful content across various platforms. Leading the sales efforts for the newly formed partnership are AMG/Parade SVP/Chief Revenue Officer Amy Chernoff and VP/Corporate Marketing and Video Solutions Monique Kakar.

AMG/Parade and Made In Network first partnered in 2015 on building AMG/Parade’s Community Table YouTube channel. In 2017, they teamed up to introduce a new weekly series, Best Parts, on Parade’s YouTube channel. Rollouts are planned for three more custom AMG/Parade channels over the next two years.

“Made In Network saw value in transforming our brands in video formats and we saw how Made In Network’s success is driven by a keen understanding of how to build engaged audiences on YouTube,” says Tracey Altman, AMG/Parade Executive Vice President. “YouTube is the latest generation of television and the future of how people consume media. It’s not only time to reimagine our own brands for digital native audiences but also to offer solutions to brands that are trying to reach this same target audience.”

CEO of Made In Network Kevin Grosch adds, “We are thrilled to join forces on this latest venture with AMG/Parade. Together, we are helping brands increase their reach, engagement levels and direct marketing. Brands also get results through managing YouTube channels, developing series sponsorships and creating custom YouTube content through turnkey, efficient and affordable programs.”
