Leo Resig is the co-owner and CEO of Resignation Media, LLC, the parent company of The Chive, theBERRY.com, theBRIGADE.com, theTHROTTLE.com and TheChivery.com. He started the flagship site, theCHIVE in November 2008 with his brother John Resig. theChive is a popular men's content and commerce destination, which now receives over 18M visitors and over 100M pageviews per month.
Hailing from Fort Wayne, Indiana, and graduating from Indiana University, Leo now lives in Austin, TX and works closely with brother John (co-founder of theCHIVE). His sisters, Emily Resig and Megan Resig are the editors of theCHIVE’s sister website, theBERRY.com.
The family turned theChive into a success with a series of viral hoaxes that were reported by the mainstream media as true.
In the summer of 2013 Resignation Media relocated to Austin, TX from Los Angeles, California.
Keep Calm and Chive On (KCCO) is modern slang for "don't stress about life, enjoy it." The expression originated during World War II with Keep Calm and Carry On propaganda, but has morphed into a modern pop culture reference revolving around the Chive.
Following the success of theChive, the brothers launched an early version of Tapiture in the Summer of 2012. The site was originally referred to as a "Pinterest for Dudes" and despite skepticism, the site was attracting 1.5 million monthly unique visitors after 6 weeks of its debut. Tapiture was spun out and in September 2012, John Ellis was hired as CEO to raise funds and build the business. Leo is an investor in Tapiture and a member of its Board of Directors. Tapiture is headquartered in Santa Monica, CA.
