The Meet Group

The Meet Group has appointed a new board member from News Corporation.

Bedi A. Singh was the CFO at News Corporation for over four years, before becoming a senior advisor at the company this March.

Prior to this, Singh served as co-CEO, President & CFO at MGM Studios, CFO of Gemstar-TV Guide, CFO of Novartis Pharma A.G. and CFO of SONY Pictures Entertainment.

Prior to 2000, he also held a number of senior finance positions at 21st Century Fox, including at News International plc and Fox Filmed Entertainment.

Geoff Cook, The Meet Group CEO said: “Bedi’s extensive experience serving as both a board member and operator for media, entertainment and technology companies makes him a natural fit for the Board.

“His financial and public company expertise, combined with his international experience, will serve The Meet Group well as we seek to build on our strategy to monetize and grow our portfolio of apps worldwide and drive increased shareholder value.”

Singh has previously served on the boards of Loews Cineplex, the North American Advisory Board for the London School of Economics, and the Advisory Boards of Move Inc. and MCAP Fund Investments.

Later this month, Jim Bugden, the SVP of Corporate Development at The Meet Group will give a talk on consolidation in a fragmented landscape at the GDI London Conference.
