Filcro Media Staffing is Retained
Filcro Media Staffing proceeded with a close examination of the firm’s current resources devoted to cultivating and managing the entire production process from business, technical and creative perspectives.
Since Filcro Media Staffing was also charged with recruiting a new Media Director and Associate Producer this Executive Producer was a critical hire for the CMO that would directly affect the firm’s revenue goals.
With over $660,000,000 in current media spend the proper executive producer would have to have had experience building a major market highly successful radio franchise broadcasting across multiple audio and video media platforms.
Based on the budgets, the search started in New York, Los Angeles and Atlanta.
None of the candidates approached for this executive search were actively seeking employment. Additionally, it required an extensive network developed by Filcro Media Staffing to get direct contact with some the most prolific and successful executive producers in the history of broadcasting, from a financial perspective.
Current contract restraints, relocation, co-ownership of a media brand and other issues were initial hurdles in attracting and recruiting the caliber of executive producer required.
Understanding who we wanted was critical. However, learning about the personal and career ecologies of each executive we targeted was of equally importance. Bringing this search to fruition was about lifestyle and transitioning to a market or geographic none of the executive producers had probably ever contemplated.
