Refinery29 Names Partnerships Exec

Amina Canter joins the team.

Refinery29 has named Amina Canter executive vp of partnerships and distribution.

Canter was most recently the COO and senior vp of business planning and development for Astronauts Wanted. She previously served as Time Warner Cable’s vp of video strategy, from 2009 to 2014.

“As content curation and distribution have moved to the platform level, digital media companies have had to confront a new reality — to create business models where the content itself, and not just the ad boxes around the content, monetize,” said Refinery29 co-founder and co-CEO Philippe von Borries, in a statement. “Amina brings deep experience and understanding of the industry, traditional as well as digital, and will work with us to advance Refinery29’s incredible momentum in creating and distributing IP in a wide range of channels.”
