AT THE HELM
When founders Marlene Cardin and Nicolas Charney started Videofashion in 1976, television executives scoffed, “Who wants to watch shows about fashion?” Lifestyle television didn’t exist. They kind of invented it. Fast forward to 2008 and our founders are still as involved as ever and leading the charge in the new millennium, along with Anne V. Adami, founding Managing Editor.
Marlene McGinnis Cardin | President and CEO
Marlene’s resume is one that makes us mere mortals wide-eyed with wonder. Her entrepreneurial savvy and impressive production credits in advertising and television have earned her an entry in Les Brown’s Encyclopedia of Television. She cut her production teeth at boutique advertising agency Lois Holland Callaway before becoming an account executive. Since co-founding Videofashion in 1976, Marlene has led thecompany’s expansion with class and extraordinary finesse. In 1983, she founded Video Ordnance, bringing contemporary aerospace and defense technology to a popular audience on The Discovery Channel, The Learning Channel, and A&E, to name just a few. As president of both Videofashion and Video Ordnance, Marlene continues to play a pivotal role in the general management and marketing of both companies’ programming.
Nicolas H. Charney, Ph.D. | Editorial Director
Nick possesses an innate gift for understanding how media and business move in this crazy and fast-paced world of ours. An educational publishing wunderkind, Nick started Psychology Today, CRM Books, and CRM Films after getting his BS at MIT and a PhD from the University of Chicago. All this in the nine short years after his high school graduation. This video pioneer co-founded Videofashion in 1976 with the goal of starting the world’s first video magazine. More recently the goal is to extend the videomagazine’s success into a worldwide, web-based 24/7 Videofashion channel. As our resident tech and editorial strategist, Nick has been the driving force behind moving the company into HD production and digital media distribution well ahead of the curve.
Anne V. Adami | Managing Editor
Without Anne, Videofashion would not have its beautifully edited programs to share with fashion hungry audiences. She expertly manages a talented team of producers, video editors, and production assistants through all stages of production from pre-production to on-location camera shoots and post-production editing. Our camera crews shoot the fashion collections in New York, London, Milan and Paris each season along with various fashion related events all overthe globe. Prior to joining Videofashion as founding managing editor, Anne modeled for the esteemed agency Wilhelmina Models. Anne has overseen the growth of Videofashion’s production output from one program series in 1977 to 13 ongoing program series to date.
