ORLANDO, Fla., May 9, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — After exploding onto the web TV scene by amassing millions of members less than 18 months following its launch, Rabbit TV’s operating company FreeCast Inc today announced a crucial move toward becoming a frontrunner in the industry. The company has named Christopher Savine, former SVP/CFO of Time-Warner/Netscape/AOL, RR Donnelly, and Cenveo, as their new Chief Financial Officer, part of an aggressive strategy to further establish itself as a leader in the Internet TV space.
Savine, who will oversee financial operations, joins FreeCast from his previous position as EVP/CFO of Cenveo, where he reworked the company’s organizational structure to generate over $100M in cost savings. Prior to his tenure at Cenveo, Savine served as EVP on the management team at RR Donnelly, where he oversaw a series of high-level acquisitions to help grow the company from a $2B operation to a global organization worth over $8B. As CFO of Netscape in the early 2000s, Savine successfully integrated the company into the Time Warner/AOL family, where he later served as Senior Vice President of Finance, spearheading profitability strategies and developing a business model for the profitable transitioning of members from dial-up to broadband.
