Colin Gottlieb will leave LADBbible Group after serving as chief growth officer during the publisher’s stock market flotation.
He announced on LinkedIn he would “move on to passions anew”. He initially joined the company in 2020 after a stint as EMEA CEO of Omnicom Media Group. Gottlieb co-founded Manning Gottlieb Media (now MGOMD, part of Omnicom) in 1990 with The Media Leader columnist Nick Manning.
LBG Media, the group behind LadBible, UNILAD, SPORTbible, Tyla and GAMINGbible, floated on London Stock Exchange last December raising £30m for the group and £81.1m for selling shareholders.
Alexander Solomou and Arian Kalantari founded the group in 2012 while at university and remain CEO and chief operating officer respectively.
