Chief Operating Officer
Walker Jacobs serves as Chief Operating Officer of Wikia, the company launched by Jimmy Wales (founder of Wikipedia) to help fans organize around topics they love like TV Shows, Movies, Video Games and much more. Founded in 2006, Wikia is now a trove of deep, original content that has since its founding steadily grown into what is by far the largest entertainment and pop culture fan site on the Internet.

His focus at Wikia ranges sales leadership, general management, strategy, marketing, operations, business development, and licensing.
