Allison Goldberg has been named SVP of Time Warner Investments, succeeding Rachel Lam, who announced she is leaving the company this spring after 14 years leading the group.
Goldberg joined Time Warner in 2001, most recently serving as VP and managing director of the Time Warner Investments group, which invests in early- to mid-stage companies that bring “strategic value” to Time Warner’s businesses.
She also serves as a director of active observer of the boards of several Time Warner Investment portfolio companies, including Amino, Bustle, Discord, Dynamic Signal, Fuse Media, Joyus, Mashable, Outpost Games, Trion Worlds, and YieldMo. Prior to joining Time Warner, Goldberg was a venture capital associate at Groupe Arnault and in investment banking with Morgan Stanley’s Global Media Group.
“Allison has played a pivotal role in numerous strategic initiatives with our Investments group,” Olaf Olafsson, EVP, international and corporate strategy at Time Warner Inc., said in a statement. “She is highly respected both within the venture capital community and within our company for her innate ability and foresight to identify potential investments that benefit investee companies as well as enhance our businesses. I am confident that she will lead our Investments group to continued success.”
Lam, who has led the strategic investing arm of Time Warner Inc. since 2003, currently serves on the boards of Mashable, Kamcord, Simulmedia and Tremor Video.
“On behalf of the company, I want to thank Rachel for her leadership, her friendship and her valuable contributions to Time Warner. Over the past 14 years she has led and built our very successful Investments group, serving our strategic goals while achieving first-rate financial returns,” Olafsson said. “She will be greatly missed, and I thank her for her dedication, insight and expertise as I wish her all the best in her next chapter.”
