NEW YORK, Aug. 1, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- FanVestor today announced that Russell Redeaux of Stampede Management [Previous: Cashmere Agency, Merry Jane Media] and Alex Luke of Decentralized Music [Previous: SiriusXM/Pandora, Amazon, Apple] will join the company as Chief Business Officer and as Managing Director respectively. This onboarding was a strategic move by Michael Golomb, the founder & CEO of FanVestor, who has successfully exited four companies, two IPOs, and five publicly traded companies–he will be continuing his role amongst his powerhouse team composed of disciplines across finance and compliance, technology, and entertainment. Similar to FanVestor's partners and investors, the company hopes to disrupt the aforementioned industries through its unique benefits. This includes offering non-accredited investors to enter capital markets, Web3 implementations to remove gatekeeping, giving fans new levels of direct access to their favorite creators, celebrities, athletes, and more.
The timing of Russ and Alex assuming this venture [in addition to their other successful businesses] was crucial to position FanVestor for long-term success. Golomb stated, "Humbly and with great pleasure we welcome Russ and Alex to our FanVestor family. As we have been building the business, we realized that this must be a three-legged stool: 1. compliance/capital markets, 2. scalable fin-tech, 3. understanding the food-chain in music, sports, and entertainment. Russ and Alex re-enforce our team expertise and focus on serving our customers."
With two decades in A&R, talent management, marketing and brand development, Russ has extensive experience leading and innovating the entertainment industry through co-founding renowned management company, Stampede Management, as well as being a Senior Leadership Consultant for award-winning advertising company, Cashmere Agency. Through these endeavors, Russ has built a network of noteworthy clientele including Snoop Doog, Macy Gray, YG, Ty Dolla $ign, Far East Movement, Busta Rhymes, and others. Russ has developed large scale marketing campaigns for brands like Heineken, LG, Adidas, and Doritos to name a few.

Prior to the above, Russ was a Creative Marketing Consultant for Merry Jane Media, a global multi-media company, producing scripted and non-scripted television shows including the Emmy-nominated hit series "Martha & Snoop's Potluck Dinner Party," now in its third season on VH1. Russ is excited to bring the knowledge he's gained over the course of his impressive career to FanVestor,
"FanVestor should be the true disrupter by bringing capital markets to the Web3 space in a fully compliant way that will protect creators and fans while empowering ownership for both."
