The parent company CEO initiated contact with Tony Filson in New York to identify, recruit and attract a gifted broadcasting COO with related MENA leadership experience to meet the business goals related to International TV Network Operations.

The Chief Operating Officer, responsible for overseeing all aspects of commercial broadcast business and operations would be working in a unique and developing media market, requiring special skills and acumen. 

This senior broadcasting executive leading a newly created media broadcasting subsidiary of the parent company in all TV network businesses will bring this digital terrestrial broadcast TV Network to fruition overseeing all lines of business.   

With an aggressive role out schedule, this COO shall facilitate countrywide DVB-T2 standards in Afghanistan while building a world-class TV broadcasting entity.

Tony Filson functioning as Officer in Charge of Search (OIC), had worked extensively in the MENA recruiting and relocating broadcasting executives from global media markets to bring similar broadcast entities to fruition.  The CEO wanted a firm that could hit the ground running.

The CEO of the parent company had numerous concerns that were alleviated based on Filcro Media Media Staffing’s record of success in unique MENA, LATAM and EU broadcasting markets that faced similar challenges at TV Network inception.

With an aggressive cadence required for TV Network roll-out based on budgets, regulatory and legislative considerations, the CEO was seeking a COO with a history of proven efficacy in the region as unique challenges would need to be managed by a strong leader familiar with Afghanistan and the MENA as a whole.

The OIC had recently completed similar TV Network searches in the MENA for C level broadcasting executives and was able to identify the top three broadcasting executives globally who could meet the CEO’s aggressive cadence. 

Within (8) weeks of Filcro Media Staffing being retained the proper TV Network COO for Kabul was identified, recruited, attracted and contracts finalized for an immediate start date.
