Jonathan Miller

Jon is a digital media veteran known for his strategic and operational expertise and is a founding partner of Velocity Interactive Group.

From 2002 to 2006, Jon served as Chairman and CEO of AOL. He was brought in to architect an industry-defining turnaround. He restructured the company’s core business lines, focused the company on online advertising, including completing the highly successful 2004 acquisition of Advertising.com. Through his leadership, AOL delivered record annual profit growth of 21 percent and increased its online advertising growth, the centerpiece of the new business model, by 46 percent.

Previously, Jon was CEO and President of USA Information and Services, now IACI and Expedia (the company split in two in 2005). Through both acquisitions and migrating business models to become digitally focused, USA/IACI built industry-leading positions in such areas as online travel, ticketing, and electronic retailing.

Prior to USA/IACI, Jon was Managing Director of Nickelodeon International, a unit of Viacom’s MTV Networks.

Jon received his B.A. with honors from Harvard College. He serves on the Board of the American Film Institute and serves as a trustee of both Emerson College and WNYC Public Radio in New York.
