Grant Gittlin, CXO at MediaLink

Grant Gittlin, CXO at MediaLink


MediaLink creates competitive advantage and growth strategies by navigating and connecting Silicon Valley, Madison Avenue, Hollywood and Wall Street.  They were recently purchased by Ascential, the UK business-to-business media and events company (which also happens to run Cannes Lions) for $207 million.

As CXO, Grant works across the needs of MediaLink and its clients.

From working with some of today’s most innovative companies to building MediaLink’s family office practice to helping operate the “business of the business” for MediaLink, the role is intentionally undefined. There is no deal too big nor task too small.

He began his career at Bridgewater Associates – eventually leaving finance to find “someone who loved their job and did it well.” After a one-year professional adventure helping launch companies, MediaLink took him in allowing him to serve as the company’s first Chief of Stuff. Grant majored in Politics at Princeton University. Additionally, he is the creator of ARTHA, an incubator for emerging artists based in the Brooklyn Navy Yard.
