Direct Brands, Inc. Company Profile
DVDs and book clubs make money for Direct Brands. Initially a 50-50 joint venture between entertainment giants Sony and Time Warner, the company (along with sister company Bookspan) is home to a number of DVD and book club brands. One of the largest direct-to-consumer distributors of media products in the US, the Pride Tree Holdings portfolio company operates 24 well-known media clubs, including Columbia House, Doubleday Book Club, Book-of-the-Month Club, BOMC2.com, and a number of special interest and lifestyle book clubs. The company serves members across the US through its various club catalogs and online. Pride Tree Holdings acquired Direct Brands in 2012 from Arizona-based investment firm Najafi Companies.
