Prior to joining HBO, Jeff was CTO of the urban Internet portal Volume.com, a wholly owned subsidiary of HBO.

“The digital delivery and reading of comics is on the cusp of going truly mass-market in the US and globally,” commented DiBartolomeo. “I’m passionate about building a world-class technology infrastructure and leveraging the newest digital tools and platforms to support comiXology’s growth and enhance the digital experience for our readers.”
