The Management Team
Jason Liebman, Co-Founder & CEO
In 2007, Jason Liebman cofounded Howcast with the goal of creating the largest—and highest quality—library of how-to videos on the web, providing users with the answer to almost any question, whenever, wherever they need to know how. Jason is also a cofounder of movements.org, a nonprofit organization that helps young people to effect nonviolent change around the world using 21st-century tools.
Before Howcast, Jason worked at Google on the YouTube, Google Video, and AdSense teams. Prior to Google, Jason was Executive Vice President of Sales and Business Development at Applied Semantics before it was acquired by Google in 2003—one of the largest acquisitions in Google's history. Jason began his career at Credit Suisse as an investment banker. A New York City native, Jason graduated from Duke University.
