In February 2009, Greg Blatt was hired as the CEO of Match.com. It was after five years of service at InterActivCorp (IAC), a parent company for Match.com. IAC bought Match.com in 1999, a year in which Blatt started serving at Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia.
Greg had also worked at another firm, Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen, & Katz, the most significant mergers and acquisitions firm in New York. While at this firm, Mr. Blatt was keen on his work, whereby he would remain in office even after other staff had left. Greg says this was when he learned about teamwork, perfectionism, and problem-solving from different approaches.
Greg Blatt then decided to switch from corporate law to entertainment law. He was later employed at Grubman Indursky Schindler PC, a firm where he met his next boss, Martha Stewart. Stewart was a venture capitalist with various merchandise but focused more on her magazine business.
After establishing her holding company, Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia, she employed Greg Blat as the general counsel. As Blatt’s served in this institution, he would interact with the top executive who taught him how to manage a business.
At IAC, Greg Blatt also served as the general counsel. By 2009, he had gained enough knowledge and understanding of working as a CEO. He served at Match.com for two years, then returned to New York to be the President of IAC in 2011.
Mr. Blatt was born and raised in Boston. He attended college at Colgate University in New York to study economics and English Literature. After school, Blat worked at bars and restaurants and later traveled to San Francisco and Europe to search for greener pastures. At this time, he also wrote a novel to reflect what he had studied in college. He later enrolled at Columbia Law School and graduated with a J.D. in 1995.
