With the guidance of an all-star board of directors and the addition of multiple key veterans joining the team, Splash is poised to continue its lead in this exciting and ever-evolving space.

Splash Media Group, LLC announced today that it has completed a management buyout of several of the assets of Splash Media LP’s social media agency and video production facility based in North Dallas suburb of Addison, Texas. CEO John Dankovchik led the MBO.

Splash Media is one of the largest social media-only agencies in the country, and has been at the forefront of social media marketing since 2010. Splash has operated as a social media outsource partner for hundreds of businesses and has over 100,000 man-hours of intellectual property within its processes. Splash Media now focuses its efforts on partnering with large traditional advertising agencies to deliver best-in-class social media and content marketing for enterprise brands. Splash Media is well known for its content marketing capabilities via its $5 million video production facility and its Emmy Award-winning staff.

“I am intimately familiar with Splash Media and its management team, as I was their first customer almost a decade ago when they pioneered the industry by delivering 12 hours of daily, live, broadcast-quality video training over The Dish Network. We later transitioned that content to a web delivery platform,” Dankovchik said. “I have worked with the principals of Splash on many successful projects. I am very excited about the future of Splash as we are making immediate additions to the team and process management changes to leverage our expertise and capabilities to their fullest extent.”

In conjunction with the MBO, Dankovchik also announced the formation of a new board of directors that includes Gary Von Kennel, the first CEO of RAPP Collins Worldwide and the most successful CEO in the history of TracyLocke.

“With the guidance of an all-star board of directors and the addition of multiple key veterans joining the team, Splash is poised to continue its lead in this exciting and ever-evolving space,” Dankovchik said. “We will announce several more new hires soon, including a leading social media strategist, and an industry veteran to head up project management.”

Dankovchik further added, “At the core of Splash Media is its ability to produce broadcast-quality video content at a cost that no other agency can touch. Splash believes the trend in video engagement and the propensity to view video on mobile devices will continue to grow aggressively.”
