Mike Germano

Chief Digital Officer, VICE Media

Mike Germano serves as Chief Digital Officer of VICE Media, working out of their world headquarters in Brooklyn, NY.

Leading the commercialization of all Vice Digital properties, he pushes the boundaries of what advertisers can do in this new media space.

Mike came to Vice in 2013 through the acquisition of his award winning digital agency, Carrot Creative, which he co-founded and still serves as CEO of. Carrot operates as a subsidiary of Vice, whose global clients include Rolex, Target, Unilever, Ferrari and Red Bull. Mike is a highly sought after global speaker because of his candor on the industry, and energetic style. He speaks around the world at events that run the gamut from tech, like CES, to sports, such as to the NFL. Mike started his career becoming the first politician to use social media to get elected to office. However, he couldn’t have been that good because he only served one term. Mike resides in Brooklyn with his wife and son, is an angel investor and co-owns the best pizza place in Brooklyn, Fornino.
