Under Yanover’s stewardship, Fandango has developed movie discovery and ticketing innovations for leading online, social, mobile, AI and voice technology platforms from Apple, Facebook, Google, Amazon, Snapchat and others. Most recently, the company announced it is acquiring MovieTickets.com, which will join brands Fandango, Flixster, Ingresso and Fandango Latin America to create a suite of movie ticketing properties, serving hundreds of millions of moviegoers worldwide.

Before being named to his post at Fandango, Yanover served as executive vice president and managing director of Disney Online, where he oversaw all Disney-branded initiatives on the Internet and mobile web, from Disney.com to Disney's suite of premium digital products including online games, virtual worlds, network of family targeted sites, and streaming service Disney Movies Online.  Yanover began his career with Disney at Walt Disney Feature Animation, ultimately becoming vice president of technology and digital production for the division, and also served as senior vice-president of Disney Parks & Resorts Online, overseeing the ecommerce business across Disney’s resorts and theme parks.
