Dean Elkholy, Co-Founder and Chief Social Media Officer of Diply, is what education professionals would term a “multipotentialite.” After spending four years with TD Canada Trust while pursuing his BA Honors and Specialization in Kinesiology at Western University, Elkholy dropped out of dental school to pursue his passion for viral media by co-founding Diply. Elkholy’s keen eye for social trends and dynamic approach to organizational operations have been a key factor in driving the exponential growth of the company.
Diply, a sharing platform on the cutting edge of digital marketing technologies, has seen unprecedented success. In under three years, the company has grown to over 150 employees, and has been called the fastest growing website on the Internet. Diply averages more than 20 million hits a day, and is the second largest entertainment site globally after Buzzfeed, among the top 30 websites in the U.S., according to the tracking site Alexa.com.
