Filcro Media Staffing is Retained

Review Filcro Media Staffing Media Executive Search for Media and Communications Needs of Media and Communications Executive Search Firms Tony FilsonFilcro Media Staffing’s Officer in Charge of Search Tony Filson was flown to the client company, met with the ESC and commenced the search by first reestablishing a consensus of the ESC based on Filcro Media Staffing’s prior experience with similar searches consisting of diverse sets of private and public sector constituencies.

Filcro Media Staffing was provided with a tour of all technical and operational facilities to evaluate and review all hard and soft assets as they relate(d) to the skills required of the new ED/CIO/CEO. This tour was invaluable in garnering an understanding of a unique culture comprised of mixed Government, Utility and Business interests.

Filcro Media Staffing Tony Filson Review of Media Executive Search for Communications and Media and Broadcasting Media for Media Executive SearchThe diversity of the constituency on the executive search committee caused an unusually abundant skill-set and multiple industry experience requirement document, to be initially drawn. It was necessary for Filcro Media Staffing to establish a hierarchy of desired skill sets and industry experience to proceed with universe compilation and tiering. Filcro Media Staffing reported to an ESC consisting of seven (7) executives participating remotely by video conference at times. SEIT offered many advantages during internal consensus building.

Filcro Media Staffing was fortunate to have such vocal, articulate and free flowing input from the ESC. The establishment of the new document used for universe compilation was accomplished immediately once Tony Filson presented market and technology information to facilitate the committee's needs.

Due to political and proposed legislative issues the search offered many challenges. An executive had to be identified that could function within an organization that could possibly experience fundamental “core” changes in a brief period of time.

Some of the challenges facing the new Executive Director (ED) - CIO

  • Change Management
  • Resource Allocation
  • Customer Service
  • Adaptation of Technology to Client Needs
  • Legislative Awareness and Formulation
  • Financial Management and Budget Controls
  • Reviews of all Vendor Partnerships / Relationships
  • Human Resource Concerns


Filcro Media Staffing proceeded to Identify the "best in industry" chief technology operational executives and technology CEO’s and CIO’s with  proven records of success within similar corporate and technical organizations sharing ecology similarities with documented and effective modality that could be exhibited to the ESC.  Strategic business and technological leadership being of primary concern in advanced technology environments serving broadcasting, military, distribution and telecommunication interests with advanced self supporting IT infrastructures.

Review of an ITTC and Iowa State Executive Search for a Executive Director of State Telecommunications and MediaAn executive capable of focusing on cohesive management team development that could be responsive to a diverse customer base was essential. The constituency had to witness immediately, traits that would facilitate efficacy in areas of this “vital concern”.

With an unusual need for “network client” competency assurances for advanced data dissemination at the onset, tactical, strategic and technological acumen was required to compliment effective mentoring skills related to “network clients” requiring 365/24/7 date resources with assured redundancies.

As the ESC was torn equally to the new executive being from the private or government / public sectors, we needed an executive with proven experience functioning within both worlds from a service perspective who was a technologist, honed executive and consensus builder.

The new CIO / executive director was recruited from a next-generation network services provider offering a comprehensive portfolio of network and broadband media services to companies, utilities and government concerns whose businesses require intensive amounts of bandwidth and reliability.

This technology executive serviced pre-and-post Regional Bell Operating Companies, Interexchange Carriers, international carriers, wireless companies, cable service providers, utilities,  major Internet service providers and media content owners.

This executive was also familiar with hardened facility requirements that are inherent to the environment and functionality of these unique facilities. His proven efficacy in managing and developing advanced IT infrastructure was ideal as he was a competent CIO, COO and CEO within both the the public and private sectors.

The executive was ambitious and an accomplished manager with proven abilities to identify areas of strength and weakness with hard and soft assets. He improved bottom line results in every environment he managed directly or on a dotted-line. He was pro-active and detail oriented with a hands-on team management style focused on the big picture and developing strategies to achieve objectives, yet he had the sensitivities to successfully manage the unique constituency issues of the organization.

His experiences in P&L, cost center management, business development, corporate environment IT, market strategy, product development, operations, turnarounds and call center operations were quite distinct from that of other candidates.  The compilation of this executive's work experiences and skills were a perfect fit for where the organization wanted to be in the future.

The cultural fit was proper from functional, technical, business and personal perspectives relevant to the present and proposed core changes of the network itself. His capacity to transition the environment and culture from a predominantly “military feel and culture” to that of a private industry technology resource provider was apparent also.

The executive had implemented market based pricing approaches in the past that improved average revenue per operating unit by 30%.

The executive experienced a smooth and speedy relocation and is performing exceptionally well receiving promotions and chairmanships of numerous entities relevant to the constituencies interests.

We found the executive to be an exceptional business person, fine gentleman and a respected member of the community.

Security and Senate confirmation was required and received for this CEO / CIO Executive Director who holds the title of State CIO of the most advanced private and public sector utility hybrids in The United States of America.
