A Multiplex Multiplatform Multicast music TV network seeking departure from legacy media distribution, merchandising and consumer music entertainment. 

Looking to the future and the modalities of which music is produced, distributed, licensed and monetized across (8) eight media platforms the firm retained Filcro Media Staffing to recruit a CMO capable of leading in TV and digital business, technical and creative areas relevant to marketing.



Client Situation

The CEO and CFO had inherited a CMO from a Music TV Network they acquired for their U.S. broadcast MSO and OTA distribution assets. This incumbent CMO’s experience and acumen was limited to local, regional and national U.S. markets.

With an emphasis now on global distribution and global marketing partnerships, it was necessary to identify, recruit and attract a CMO who could concentrate initially on The Americas and then build-out marketing resources in the U.K, Australia, EU and Asia respectively for additional OTT, OEM and Mobile platforms.   

With key recording artists, music labels and publishers as catalysts for distribution across eight media platforms, it would be essential that this new CMO have equal capacity and efficacy with the music and broadcasting entities essential to the firm’s success.

Filcro Media Staffing is Retained


The Filcro Media Staffing Officer in Charge of Search, Tony Filson, met with the CEO in New York to discuss the immediate and longterm goals of the company as they related to marketing.  Strategic and tactical marketing initiatives with internal and external partnerships were examined as drivers or catalysts for each business, technical and creative unit of the company.

Affiliate, public relations, technology, consumer and a host of B2B, B2C and C2C issues were discussed for domestic and international business that offered clear means to be utilized during the recruitment process.   

Recruiting for this Chief Marketing officer was to commence immediately and the CEO was extremely verbose in the type of relationship he was seeking with this CMO and the level of autonomy that would be required.

With a firm understanding of the makeup of the board, the CEO and CFO as well as the respective heads of sales, affiliate distribution and music relations, it was easy to determine the right cultural fit.

The search commenced the same week with New York and California as the logical geographics and ultimately, those targeted environments brought the search to fruition.  Chicago, Redmond, Atlanta  and Miami also populated the initial search universe.

Filcro Media Staffing’s Recruitment Modality



The new CMO would be working with honed contemporaries from a compilation of the World's largest media and entertainment companies.  Many of which were recruited by Filcro Media Staffing.  From their respective industries in broadcasting, music, technology and merchandising their global acumen and monetization modalities would require a CMO who could be a substantial catalyst in the success of the company.

After three rounds of interviews it became apparent that (3) three of the (11) eleven candidates were ideals.

Tony FIlson as the OIC again met with the CEO and CFO to discuss the final (3) candidates before a final fourth round of interviews.  Each candidate was examined in detail with regard to every immediate and longterm goal of the company.  The general consensus was unanimous and it wan now time for each executive to justify their findings one final time before a formal offer could be made.

Ultimately the CMO hired also had to make a decision; he had another offer in hand.  Currently residing in New York City he was offered another position in the Southeast with a motion picture studio.   

After careful thought and to everyone's joy the CMO accepted the CEO’s offer.  The new Chief Marketing Officer with a vested interest in the success of the firm has everything required to make this opportunity the most significant career and financial success he has partaken in, in his respected career.
