New York, NY, June 6, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Likeable Media announced today that it has appointed Carrie Kerpen President of the company. This role is in addition to her previous role as Likeable's Chief Operating Officer. Dave Kerpen will remain Chief Executive Officer. Likeable has also formed an advisory board composed of eleven leaders in business, finance and law.

Both initiatives were launched in conjunction with the company's mission to create a more likeable world.

As the company continues its rapid growth and expansion, it is looking to leaders in areas of finance, law and business to provide insight into Likeable's activities and arising challenges.
