Greg Morrow brings over 20 years of internet media, product innovation and digital operating experience to Ranker, a fast-growing next-gen media company built on data powered by consumers. The site’s crowdsourced list rankings generate 70 million global visitors monthly.
Morrow joined Ranker in Q4 2017 as COO with overarching responsibility to manage and foster company growth. Prior to joining Ranker, Morrow was the head of digital for the largest action and adventure sports media company in the world, TEN. He joined the company in October 2010 when TEN acquired Grind Networks, the company Greg founded and had led since 2005. Grind Networks’ digital properties and expertise were combined with the iconic action sports brands including Surfer, Powder and Snowboarder.
Morrow’s career path in the digital realm began back in 1997 when he founded and served as CEO of start-up company MUSICVIDEOS.COM – the first company to license music videos from record labels to stream on-demand. MUSICVIDEOS.COM was eventually acquired by LAUNCH Media, at which time Morrow became vice president of business development, and then vice president/executive producer.
After LAUNCH Media was acquired by Yahoo!, Morrow transitioned to the role of director of product strategy and marketing for the Yahoo! Music domestic site. Under his guidance, Yahoo! Music evolved into the Internet's largest global entertainment destination with 40+million unique users and over 250+ million video views per month.
Shortly thereafter, Morrow became general manager of Yahoo! Music International properties. During this post, he defined and managed Yahoo!'s international music strategy and worked closely with local Yahoo! country divisions, record labels and international affiliates to create, build and market new local product offerings. In a short, eighteen-month span, Morrow piloted the release of Yahoo! Music into nine different countries and helped it become one of the top three most trafficked sites in six of those respective nations.
Morrow earned his degree in Mechanical Engineering at the University of California, Santa Barbara. He resides in Ladera Ranch with his wife and three sons.
