Client Profile

Division of a U.S. multinational media and entertainment conglomerate in the Music & Entertainment space.  The brand at the time of engagement was primary 18 - 24 skewing to a 18 - 34 demographic.  Revenue of this division was under $1 Billion USD.

Client Situation

The National Vice President of Online Advertising Sales had setup sales offices in New York, NY | Los Angeles, CA |  Chicago, IL and Detroit, MI by utilizing Filcro Media Staffing. He was now seeking an additional layer of sales leadership in a honed National Director of Online Advertising Sales to function with autonomy in New York to manage all front and back office sales functions.

The VP’s objective was to take greater strategic control of the sales organization  through this hire, and allow the new Director autonomy with tactical execution.  The important partnership with On-Air advertising sales could also be enhanced by making Digital a “go to” resources with TV for cross-platform sales.

The VP’s plan was to enhance sales staff training and development, implement new traffic systems, improve digital agency relations and make ideation workflow for client and creative services a more accessible resource through this hire.

Filcro Media Staffing is Retained

Executive Search Firms that recruit online advertising sales executives for digital mediaThe Filcro Media Staffing Officer in Charge of Search (OIC) Tony Filson  worked directly with the Vice President to establish his priorities with regard to markets, budgets, employee development,  workflow, media technology and budget goals by business vertical and geographic.

Filcro Media Staffing has extensive experience recruiting within this space and was able to compile a search universe in a relatively brief period of time. 

Recruitment resources of Filcro Media Staffing were drawn from New York, Chicago and Los Angeles to assure that the universe of final sales candidates was indeed from a comprehensive national pool of digital sales executives adapt at cross-platform TV, Online and Mobile monetization with the proper agency and client relationships.

Specific genre considerations with the brand were of importance to the Vice President and COO of this entertainment group.  Filcro Media Staffing kept a clear focus on sales management acumen but took every opportunity to identify those who had a particular affinity to the brand and genre in this unique entertainment and business culture.

The online group has recently formalized plans for synergistic client services, creative services, traffic and inventory systems to offer clients, agencies and internal sister companies information across three media platforms. Filcro Media Staffing had also staffed all the sales support functions and this gave Filcro Media Staffing a distinct advantage to identify “capacity” and “strategic” acumen within the new Director within context of the Network’s current resources.  Particular internal sensitivities with the Television and Motion Picture Groups would require a strong strategist who could gain internal as well as external consensus when initiating new programs for clients and agencies.  Wed for Fri box-office was being driven well by digital in a cost effective manner.

The Divisional Vice President and COO granted Filcro Media Staffing the autonomy required to creatively attract those that could function properly on a Director's level and ultimately grow to Vice President as the VP was promoted to Senior Vice President.  This was clearly a search that would facilitate revenue growth and a solid succession plan.
