Steven Rosenberg, former President of HBO International, currently serves as a Principal of Contextible Strategic Advisors, a consultancy dedicated to providing financial, strategic, and business direction to clients in the media, education, advertising, and entertainment industries. Steven Rosenberg’s achievements at HBO render him uniquely qualified to provide this type of guidance. During his 14 years with HBO International, during which he served in a variety of executive roles, he launched the channel’s services in Latin America, Asia, and Central Europe, ultimately expanding its reach to 50 countries and territories. In addition to greatly expanding HBO’s international business, Rosenberg effected a financial transformation for Latin America’s Warner Channel. Prior to his involvement, the network catered to a family audience and offered weak financial performances. Rosenberg increased sales revenue by 500 percent and ratings by 250 percent, making Warner the region’s leading advertisement-supported channel for the coveted 18-to-34-year-old market. After leaving HBO International, Steven Rosenberg joined Entertainment Mediaworks as Chief Executive Officer. Charged with turning around the company, he focused on significantly decreasing its burn rate and raising $2.5 million in new capital. Within his first seven months on the job, he oversaw a product application launch and brought on board a new Chief Technology Officer. Today, in addition to his role with Contextible, he maintains two blogs, Jemook.com and StevenRosenbergMedia.com. On these platforms, Steven Rosenberg comments on emerging trends in mobile advertising and marketing, as in a recent piece examining how the widespread use of smartphones has changed the face of commerce in the United States.
