25 Year Innovator

IAC Chairman and Senior Executive Barry Diller realized decades ago what is commonly known today: that technical leaps in interactivity would revolutionize commerce in record time.

Twenty-five years later, IAC continues to build companies inspired by this vision. IAC progeny include category-defining companies such as Vimeo, Angi Inc., Match Group, Expedia, TripAdvisor, HSN, LendingTree, Interval Leisure Group, and Live Nation (formerly Ticketmaster); together, these market leaders have created equity value of nearly $100 billion. 

Today, the legacy continues with a new generation of IAC companies transforming categories online.  IAC operates Dotdash and Care.com – among many others – and also has majority ownership of Angi, which includes HomeAdvisor Powered by Angi and Handy.
