Filcro Media Staffing is Retained

The Network President identified Filcro Media Staffing (FMS) and Tony Filson (TF) functioning as Officer in Charge of Search through prior searches conducted over a number of years in New York, NY and St. Petersburg, FL.

The Filcro Media Staffing Officer in Charge of Search (Tony Filson Case Histories) had conducted 100% successful broadcast technology, marketing, BO&E and On-Air Promo specialized executive searches in the past for HSN and other broadcasters to develop on-air skills for News and Sports personalities also.  For former searches Tony Filson had reported into heads of TV programming and show executive producers with a clear history of success in recruiting and identifying On-Air Training and Development staff to enhance brands and build audiences.

The Network President was clear in his objectives and granted Filcro Media Staffing the autonomy to determine the ideal business sectors and verticals to draw from to recruit the proper executives as candidates for this unique search.

Filcro Media Staffing’s Recruitment Solution

An initial candidate universe of sixty-two (62) was identified.   Screened were twenty-seven (27) East and West Coast candidates and ultimately honed to eight (8) recruited for the President.  After his review of resumes, references, compensation and Filcro Media Staffing’s interview notes he opted to see four (4) candidates flown to St. Petersburg, FL.

Two (2) candidates were from the cosmetics industry, one (1) from Network TV and (1) one  from a noted producer and developer of syndicated TV programming.

Successful Vice President of On-Air Training Recruited

The new Vice President recruited by Filcro Media Staffing and hired by the Network President was a “Trainer’s Trainer” in the cosmetics industry.

Her international experience teaching others to develop relationships in a brief period of time and optimize those relationships from a monetization perspective were ideal. Few trainers who specialize in this area had her acumen or expertise in making permanent changes that reflected such clear efficacy. She had a rare talent in empowering individuals and their managers to develop the specific skills the President of the Network was seeking.

Having traveled extensively to train other trainers she also was aware of cultural, demographic and geographic nuance to enhance on-air staff when targeting specific merchandise verticals.

Her soft skills were exceptional and fit in well with maintaining sensitivities to talent, talent reps and the needs of each executive producer and the Network as a whole.

With immediate success, this was a clear example of how a single executive could be an effective change agent in the respected and unique corporate culture of HSN.
