Rick Rey

Award-winning digital media executive

For nearly a decade I've been deeply involved in online video. I was part of a forward-thinking group of people in the mid 2000s who were passionate about telling stories in new ways on new technology platforms. Since then I've developed and produced a lot of original content across many digital channels and websites — much of it in partnership with advertisers — through which I've worked with the biggest online stars in the world.

I am CEO & Co-founder of Surreal, an immersive entertainment company. Previously I was VP, Original Programming & Development at Maker Studios, a subsidiary of The Walt Disney Company. Before that I ran Blip's digital studio and content team. These roles have given me opportunities to create and distribute premium content at scale to a huge millennial audience. Connect with me.
