Dan Demole (born 1979) is an American entrepreneur, co-founder and COO of Jingle Punks Music. Jingle Punks has been featured in Billboard, Variety and Business Week where it was named "one of America's most promising start ups".
Dan Demole started Jingle Punks Music with musician and television editor Jared Gutstadt after meeting at a Black Keys concert in Brooklyn, New York. Within months of launching the company, they released their platform, "The Jingle Player". Developed by Demole with industry knowledge input from Gutstadt, it helped them differentiate themselves quickly from their competitors. The player itself is a proprietary, patented technology that provides targeted music selection with a searchable interface.
In late 2012, talent agency William Morris Endeavor acquired a majority stake in Jingle Punks, aiming to cultivate synergies across their music and entertainment verticals. Only two years later, the company was again sold to ole Music Publishing in March 2015, after growing its revenue from $5 million in 2011 to more than $18 million in 2014. Demole will serve as General Manager of Jingle Punks in their Tribeca office in New York City.
Prior to starting Jingle Punks Music, he spent two years traveling in Africa, Asia, Australia and Central America before landing in New York city. Originally from Florida, Demole worked for L-3 Communications and Electronic Arts and was a graduate of the University of Central Florida, receiving a BS degree in computer science.
