Frank Voci has spent his career building successful, breakthrough digital businesses as both a media executive and a consultant. He helped define product development methodologies and brings more than 25 years of experience in product launches to his clients.
Frank started creating digital media products early in his career. While Senior Editor of Disney Adventures magazine in the early 90’s, he conceptualized and launched the Walt Disney Company’s first-ever online presence.
In the mid 90’s, Frank became a member of the team that launched CNET, which innovated data-driven publishing and the CMS while becoming the leader in technology news and reviews. Frank was instrumental in the development of each of CNET’s charter properties including CNET.com, News.com, Download.com, and joint ventures with Intel, E!, and NBC. Frank also produced CNET’s first television series “CNET Central”.
Not long after leaving CNET, Frank became a partner at 12 Entrepreneuring, an experimental VC/incubator hybrid. Created by a CNET founder, the company assembled a think tank to conceive, build, and invest in new businesses using innovative, disruptive technologies.
In 2001 Frank returned to media as President of IFILM, the first site to stream video at scale. There he oversaw the company’s consumer business and his purview included programming, marketing, product development, technology and sales. Voci also developed IFILM’s theatrical and television ventures, expanding the brand through partnerships with AMC Theatres and IFC.
In 2003 Frank formed Voci Media Works to bring his accumulated expertise to a whole new set of forward-thinking companies. Today, VMW partners with companies across multiple sectors and stages who are intent on launching digital products that have impact and delight users.
When he’s not developing products, Frank is helping others develop healthy habits as a National Board Certified Health Coach. He has served as Vice-Chair and Treasurer of the Board of Directors of APLA Health and holds a degree in Human Biology from Stanford University.
