Ricky Van Veen Net Worth $25 Million
To begin with, Ricky was raised in Lutherville-Timonium, and attended high school in Baltimore, Maryland. He subsequently graduated from Wake Forest University, and while still studying there Ricky, along with his friend Josh Abramson, whom he had first met studying at high school, created the popular site CollegeHumor. It should be said that Jakob Lodwick helped the fellows with the web design. At that time the advertising business was on the go, and the friends wanted to create a humour website which would attract college students, and would be full of advertisements targeting the previously mentioned age group. This plan worked out almost perfectly, with the website attracted huge numbers of young people, who enjoyed reading the articles, watching videos, and admiring the illustrations and photos. The friends were earning from $10 to $15 million a year, which obviously added huge sums to the total size of Ricky Van Veen and Josh Abramson’s net worth.
Later on, they sold the company to the Internet and media company IAC; it has been bought alongside the parent company entitled Connected Ventures that included the video sharing website Vimeo and humour website BustedTees. Of course this made a significnt contribution to Van Veen’s net worth.
It is worth mentioning the fact that Van Veen has also appeared as an actor, in the company’s series “Jake and Amir” (2007 – 2015) and “The CollegeHumor Show” (2009 – 2015) aired on the MTV channel. Consequently, acting has helped Ricky Van Veen to increase the overall size of his net worth.
What is more, Ricky Van Veen has launched the company entitled Notional, which produces television programs. Such popular shows as “Don’t Sweat it”, “Love Taxi”, “Chase the Money”, “Ready, Set, Dance!” and others have been produced by the company. Ricky Van Veen is the CEO of the company, and Seth Eisman is the Senior Vice President of Production. Undoubtedly, Notional has also increased the net worth of the entrepreneur Ricky Van Veen.
Finally, in the personal life of the wealthy businessman, he met the actress, singer and comedian Allison Williams in 2011. The couple was together for years until they married in September 2015, in a private ceremony held in Saratoga, Wyoming, officiated by the actor and film-maker Tom Hanks. The family currently resides in New York City, with rumours flying that the newlyweds are planning to have a baby.
