Longtime digital media executive Allison Stern has joined The Chernin Group as an operating partner.
At the media and tech-focused investment firm, Stern says she’ll be working to advise portfolio companies, explore markets of interest by harnessing a data-driven approach, and source and diligence new investment opportunities.
Prior to joining TCG, Stern co-founded Tubular Labs in 2012, a digital video measurement and analytics platform, and subsequently worked on digital partnerships for the Joe Biden‘s presidential campaign.
TCG launched in 2010 and counts as its co-founders Peter Chernin, Jesse Jacobs, and Mike Kerns. The firm focuses on multi-stage investments in the media and technology spaces, and has invested in the likes of Food52, Crunchyroll, Exploding Kittens, Rooster Teeth, Fullscreen, Barstool Sports, Cameo, Headspace, and Hello Sunshine.
It most recently led a $40 million funding round for Goldin Auctions — an online marketplace for trading cards, sports memorabilia, and other collectibles.
“If you’re a fast-growing consumer business looking for capital to take you to the next level, please reach out,” Stern shared in a LinkedIn post announcing her appointment. “I’m especially interested in creator-centered businesses, education technology, and media and consumer brands focused on women.”
