Antoine is a Founding Partner at Red River West. He currently represents RRW on the board of Ada, Worldia, Le Collectionist, iObeya (as well as Data-Impact until its acquisition by Nielsen in 2021)
Antoine brings over 20 years of leadership in the digital industry, with cross-border P&L responsibilities in Fortune 500s and start-ups alike.
Antoine loves to work with RRW’s portfolio companies on their US market entry as he acutely understands the challenges and opportunities therein. In 2007 he launched the US branch of Bestofmedia and after three years that proved as complex as instructive, the US contributed over 50% of Bestofmedia’s revenue. Alongside Alfred Vericel (CEO), he merged Bestofmedia with a US company (Techmedia Network) to form Purch, the new leader in technology news, which overtook Cnet (sold for $1.8B to CBS) with over 100 million readers a month.
Before joining RRW, Antoine Boulin was leading Purch Corporate Development. During his tenure, he completed three acquisitions as well as strategic partnerships which drove over $50M in revenue. Earlier, as the President of Purch’s media division, he was managing a team of 200 across five countries.
Antoine holds an MBA from ESSEC Business School in Paris.
