Search Ecology | Filcro Media Staffing is Retained

Tony Filson functioning as the Officer in Charge of Search (OIC), has recruited extensively in MENA markets relocating broadcasting and journalism executives from EU, US, LATAM and ASIA to bring similar executive searches to fruition.  The CEO required a firm that could hit the ground running to meet mandatory deadlines.

The CEO of the parent company was pleased to learn of Filcro Media Staffing’s record of success in MENA, LATAM and EU broadcasting markets facing similar challenges at TV Network and Telecom inception, that were all successful.  Tony Filson’s experience included staffing entire TV & Radio Networks, Diverse Telecom entities and News Bureaus in active theaters as well as the global media and telecommunications capitals of the world.

With an aggressive cadence required for TV Network roll-out based on budgets, regulatory and legislative considerations, the CEO was seeking a COO with a history of proven efficacy in the region as unique challenges would need to be managed by a strong leader familiar with Afghanistan and the MENA as a whole.

Tony Filson had recently completed similar TV Network searches in the MENA for C level broadcasting executives and was able to identify the top broadcasting executives globally who could meet the CEO’s aggressive cadence and relocate to Kabul.
