NORWOOD, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--National Amusements Incorporated (NAI) announced today that Chairman Sumner Redstone has appointed a new member to the board. Brandon Korff, grandson of Sumner and son of Shari Redstone, was appointed to the private company’s governing board at their last meeting in late September.
Korff has experience in media including at NAI. Several years ago, Korff worked at NAI as the Director of Corporate Development. His first job after graduating from George Washington University was as Director of New Media for Eminem’s Shady Records where he was responsible for developing a digital marketing strategy. Korff was also a Director of Music and Artist Development at MTV, playing a key role in expanding their music content acquisitions business. This led to cost savings, new revenue streams and innovation within the music department. Music also played a role in the first documentary he co-produced, the critically acclaimed “The Electric Daisy Carnival Experience.”
“I am very happy that my grandson Brandon is helping to manage the companies I built,” said Sumner Redstone.
Korff is currently managing partner of Panoply Properties LLC., based in Miami. Panoply has holdings in the Wynwood Art District, the Design District and South Beach areas of Miami and properties in Palm Beach. The company is in the process of expanding its footprint to California and New York. One of Korff’s first projects, with Co-Founder Anthony Cummings, involved Panoply’s partnership with renowned NY real estate developer David Edelstein of TriStar Capital. The team bought the historic Raleigh Hotel in Miami, which became one of the more notable South Florida real estate deals when Panoply sold it to fashion icon Tommy Hilfiger in 2014.
“We are delighted to have Brandon back with us, in a new role as an NAI Board member” said Tad Jankowski, Executive Vice President and General Counsel of NAI, who was also appointed as a Trustee to the Sumner M. Redstone Irrevocable Trust by Sumner Redstone in May. “This is a family company and it is wonderful to have another generation involved in what past generations have created and expanded.”
