BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. — LFP President Michael Klein is leaving his post at the company and moving over to Docler Holding, which operates Jasmin.com and affiliated companies.
Klein has been tapped as president of Docler Media to manage its upcoming worldwide expansion, said Karoly Papp, CEO of Docler Holding.
Docler Media is a "new, revolutionary and wholly owned venture," Papp said. The division will focus on broadcasting, entertainment and cutting-edge Internet experiences, and Klein will lead its “inevitably rapid growth."
"Michael has been a leader in the entertainment industry for decades and his expertise will help Docler Media achieve its ambitious goals in entertainment,” he said. “His experience will be essential in advancing our media-related innovations and accelerating our global growth agenda in the mainstream and adult industries.
"I am thrilled that Michael is coming on board at this critical time, and I am looking forward to working with him."
Klein has been president at LFP Inc. since 2004, building the broadcasting division into one of the world's top broadcasting companies.
Klein also will be overseeing the expansion of independent Jasmin Agencies across the U.S., negotiating white-label deals for its adult affiliate program and working on retail and licensing deals for its brands.
Earlier this year, Docler Media officially launched the first of many Internet-based channels in development.
Channels related to music and gaming are among the many special interest channels in the works, and Klein's leadership will help guide the endeavor, Papp said.
"I have developed and implemented programming strategies for leading companies in the entertainment field, and I have consistently improved their profit margins," Klein said.
Klein, who starts at Docler Media on May 26, was the subject of an XBIZ World Presidential Suite profile in 2013. The article can be viewed here.
