Domino Media Group, the pioneering content and commerce company rooted in home décor, today announced a slate of leadership appointments and a board addition that set the shelter and design media company for (even more) rocketship growth. Domino is already the most innovative and fastest growing media brand in the home space, reaching nearly 5 million monthly uniques on the web.

In his first professional move since departing Mediavest | Spark, a Publicis Groupe company, where he served as Global President, Brian Terkelsen has joined the Domino Media Group board. Domino CEO Nathan Coyle made the announcement. Brian is a pioneering and highly regarded media executive. Among his accomplishments: launching Eco Challenge with Mark Burnett, building ad support for early media ventures such as TV’s CW Network and OWN, and pioneering content as an offering for media agencies such as Starcom and Mediavest.

“I couldn’t be more excited to join Domino’s board,” said Brian Terkelsen. “I’ve watched the design, DIY, shelter space explode and Domino is the clear pacesetter in the category; bringing scale and innovative engagement channels to advertisers. I’m looking forward to working with the Board and helping the company as Nathan and his team build a next generation media and commerce company that showcases beautiful living and design and lifestyle.”

“Brian is the perfect addition to our Board,” said Nathan Coyle. “We’re excited to tap his media expertise and knowledge of the advertiser eco-system. Domino is clearly leading the charge in home and design, which are major passion points for consumers. Brian chose to support Domino because he knows the strength of the category and Domino’s top position and innovative solutions connecting consumers and brands through top quality content and experiences.”

Coyle also is delighted to announce the following appointments and hires:

Jessica Romm Perez, Domino’s Editorial Director since 2015 will be elevated to Editor-in-Chief. Jessica has overseen explosive growth of Domino through its many distribution channels including a quarterly print magazine, and the highly regarded Domino app. Jessica’s singular design eye is widely admired in the industry. Prior to Domino, she was Lifestyle Editor at Martha Stewart Living.
