Carpe VM Team

The Carpe VM Team starts with our founders Charlie Debenedittis and Rod Nunez. Over the years we have allied and partnered with many talented individuals and companies and until this year kept the core team to two. Rodd Marcus joined the team just this past year and rounded out our skillset and aesthetic.

Charlie DeBenedittis

Charlie founded Carpe VM in January 2007 as the realization of a concept. He saw the exploding success of internet video as a magic bullet for small business. Carpe VM became the vehicle to channel his passion for both entrepreneurship, and video as a communication tool. Coming from corporate America as a project manager for a major accounting/consulting firm - he implemented Customer Relationship Management systems for non-profit organizations. Prior to that, he managed the operations department for Citicorp's Wall Street Banking Services. This experience gives Charlie his strong aptitude and experience with project management and new software applications. Charlie graduated from Columbia University School of Engineering, and completed his MBA at NYU.
