Dave Finnochio

CEO
The Bleacher Report

Dave Finnochio

Dave Finocchio launched Bleacher Report in 2008 with three good friends who shared a common belief that the most knowledgeable and insightful fans deserve a meaningful voice in sports media. Since then, it's become the second-largest digital sports publisher with a loyal monthly audience of more than 60 million.
 
Dave transformed the site both in terms of internal operation and external reputation. In 2012, Turner acquired Bleacher Report, calling on Dave to provide high-level direction for the rapidly evolving company. Through his leadership, the company now sees more social engagement across Twitter, Facebook and Instagram than any other publisher in the U.S.  Its video content and editorial caliber have grown significantly, and its companion mobile application, Team Stream, is among the most widely downloaded of any such offering in the industry.
 
A life-long sports nut with passion for hyperbole, Dave is consistently belittled for his views on Tim Tebow, The San Antonio Spurs, and Kurt Warner. Dave holds a BA in economics and history from the University of Notre Dame. He has previous experience in venture capital and private equity.
