Filcro Media Staffing Retained

The Filcro Media Staffing Officer in Charge of Search, Tony Filson, The client CFO and current Chairman met in New York and set revenue goals for the new TV Network.  Based on FIlcro Media Staffing’s experience conducting executive searches for other music and entertainment based TV Networks the board of directors wanted guidance on a number of areas relevant to the future of multiplex broadcasting and broadcasting technology that could enable the Network to enjoy profit margins well above the industry mean while greatly reducing operating costs and initial distribution CAPEX.  

Reviews of Executive Search firms that specialize in recruiting Music TV executives in cable tv networks across all multicast media platforms Filcro Media Staffing with Tony Filson As Officer in Charge of SearchReviews of Digital Media Jobs in Music TV Executive Search Firms that Recruit CEO'sReviews of Executive Search firms that specialize in recruiting Music TV executives in cable tv networks across all multicast media platforms Filcro Media Staffing with Tony Filson As Officer in Charge of SearchTechnology developed by the company for terrestrial distribution gave them an exceptional advantage over others in this space.   The ability to multi-cast across eight media platforms without legacy BO&E costs was clearly one of the company's strongest assets aside from their creative content.

Tony Filson and the Network CFO felt that a new standard for music entertainment television would catch on quickly, executing expeditiously to monopolize on the Network's intellectual property was essential.

Filcro Media Staffing reviewed all aspects of the network's infrastructure and every member of the executive search committee agreed with the firm's strategy on attracting the proper CEO.

Some of the challenges facing the new Chief Executive Officer (CEO) were

  • Evangelizing New Forms of Music Distribution & Monetization
  • Attracting and Building Management Teams in NY, CA & IL
  • Financial Controls that Excluded Legacy Media CAPEX
  • Adaptation of New Technology to Affiliates and Distributors.
  • Identifying a New Board Member

Solution Filcro Media Staffing proceeded with revenue objectives, team building, technology and genre specific industry experience at the forefront.

The initial universe of potential candidates was rich and obtaining insight into each candidate's experience with adapting new broadcasting technology to transform an industry was key.   Evangelizing new modality to an industry steeped in legacy media with vast investments in legacy broadcasting technology and distribution, was not going to be an easy task.

Of the initial universe of 20 screened and possible CEO’s, 4 were separated as first tier candidates and after extensive interviews with Filcro Media Staffing, the client board and the investment bankers all agreed that one executive was highly desired and every effort was to be made to attract this gifted CEO.

The Successful CEO Identified

A CRO of a major media entertainment technology company who prior to his current role was a senior officer of a competing music and entertainment TV Network.

As this TV Network is emerging in 2012 and based on proprietary technology.  We are limiting this case history to protect the client company proprietary technology and modality.   A more verbose review will be posted in 2013.

UPDATE:  As of March 2013 the CEO has exceeded every business, technical, creative and financial goal set by the board.
