Greg Blatt relocated to Dallas, Texas, from New York City in February 2009. He was transferring to Match.com, a small company compared to the big parent company, IAC, where he had worked for five years as an executive vice president and general counsel.
Match.com was acquired by IAC in 1999 and was among the first modern dating websites to appear online. It started to see a decline in its subscriber base and financial subscriptions. Blatt worked for Martha Stewart Living as general counsel the same year.
After graduating from Columbia Law School in 1995, Greg Blatt worked for Wachtell, Rosen, Lipton, and Katz for the first 18 months. These are among the leading New York City mergers and acquisitions firms. His primary focus was on the firms making him have less time for himself.
Greg realized corporate law was not working well for him and decided to switch to entertainment law. He became an associate at Grubman Indursky Schindler PC.
Blatt grew up in a suburb of Boston. He had no idea that he would practice law or hold a position of authority. Even though his younger performance wasn’t the best, he still attended college. Blatt still didn’t have a clear idea of his career path while he was a college student at Colgate University, majoring in English and minoring in Economics.
After working for Match.com for two years, Blatt was called back to New York City to take over as CEO of IAC when Barry Diller resigned. Gregg Blatt was there for three years before becoming chairman of the newly founded Match Group in 2014. Match.com and other dating websites that Blatt had established and acquired since taking over Match were included in the Match group. Visit this page to learn more.
Greg Blatt is a prime example of the saying “it’s never too late to dream” being accurate.
