Vice President National Sales

Client Situation

The Vice President of National Advertising Sales needed to add an additional layer of management and enhanced functionality for clients, advertising agencies and internal cross platform advertising campaigns.  The Vice President identified Filcro Media Staffing based on the firm’s reputation in both digital and broadcast recruitment.

The Vice President required a person who could autonomously function as an in-house advertising agency at times to offer clients a full cycle solution that could have TV, Motion Picture and Digital participation from the firm’s other operating divisions. Management acumen was also required to mentor, train and hire additional staff to keep pace with a brand approaching the billion dollar mark.

The client agreed with our desire to target eight environments and tier candidates based on management capacity, compensation, technology acumen, operational experience, cross platform exposure and corporate cultural respectively.   This “map” established by Filcro Media Staffing brought about the consensus required to proceed with universe compilation.

  • Building Internal Awareness of Digital Resources Across TV and Film Divisions
  • Becoming a Resource to Clients and Agencies
  • Mentoring, Hiring and Managing Staff
  • Optimizing Communication w/ Traffic and Inventory
  • Enhancing the Creative Impact of Cross-Platform TV, Interactive and Mobile Presentations

The Filcro Media Staffing Recruitment Solution

Filcro Media Staffing proceeded to identify "happily engaged" client services directors from the eight environments specified by the Vice President.

It took approximately four weeks to Identify, recruit and qualify four ideal candidates who would be capable of meeting all the current and future needs of the brand as they approached the one billion dollar mark.  Keeping to the hierarchy desired was extremely difficult with such a diverse group of candidates coming out of varied media industries with different reporting structures and modalities based purely in the content being distributed across each media platform.  

The top four candidates were all capable of working autonomously and had strong management acumen enabling the six direct reports to a have clear definition as to why this individual was picked to be the next Director.

The Vice President was extremely pleased with the quality of candidates and the cadence at which they were recruited and presented.  It was now a matter of “cultural fit” and the Vice President was certain that he could discern this with only a brief meeting with each candidate.
