Brothers John Resig and Leo Resig founded Chive Media Group and its flagship site, theCHIVE.com, in November 2008 with no capital and a lot of hustle. Leo was living in Chicago (CHI) and John was living in Venice (VE) and that’s how theCHIVE was born.
With backgrounds in digital publishing and the financial backing from partner, Doug Schaaf, John and Leo were able to turn a three-man project into the nationwide, 170-employee entertainment digital media company that Chive Media Group is today.
the CHIVE is headquartered in Austin, Texas
and includes dedicated bars, two employee lounges, dozens of stand up desks and a killer, two-story slide.
