VP Sales, Americas @ I run all of Sizmek's agency, advertiser, and mid-market sales for the North and South American regions. After taking over management responsibilities for North America in 2014, we consolidated the North and South American sales regions into a single global super-region. In addition to the management tasks listed below, I'm currently spending a large amount of time in the Spanish and Portuguese Rosetta Stone apps. From February 2015 to Present (9 months) Greater New York City AreaVP Sales North America @ I run all of Sizmek's agency, advertiser, and mid-market sales for the North American regions. My days consist of managing the regional business units, maintaining oversight on all holding company relationships, and shepherding our largest accounts through the modern ad tech landscape. From April 2014 to Present (1 year 7 months) New YorkRVP East Coast Sales @ After DG acquired EyeWonder, I took over managment responsibilities for the east coast of North America. Starting with a team of eight sellers in 2011, the business grew to support a team of 15 by the end of 2013 as revenue nearly doubled in that span. During this time I also took on managing our relationships with Havas, GroupM, and Omnicom for North America. From September 2011 to March 2014 (2 years 7 months) Greater New York City AreaVice President of Sales, East @ I took over the east coast sales and account management team at EyeWonder. It was a relatively quiet nine months until we were scooped up in the DG + MediaMind Acquisition. From January 2011 to January 2012 (1 year 1 month) Greater New York City AreaSenior Sales Director @ I continued to run a small team, carry my own accounts, and close big deals. Probably most notable during this period was my official move from a blackberry to an iPhone. It may be difficult to comprehend in retrospect, but this was a controversial stance in 2011. From August 2010 to February 2011 (7 months) Greater New York City AreaSales Director @ Towards the end of 2007 our sales team was growing and the director level was created to help manage the younger talent. As I moved into this role I took on mentoring and development responsibilities in addition to my book of business.I also took advantage of our growing position in the industry to start putting together agency and holding company wide deals. The opportunity to develop in those two areas during this period was tremendous, and I was lucky to have strong mentors in Mike Rosner and Frank Morgano to guide me. From October 2007 to November 2010 (3 years 2 months) Greater New York City AreaAccount Executive @ I went full on into ad tech sales for the first time in the middle of Q4 2006. As the most junior member of the sales team at the time, I was given a group of media and creative agencies the company had little to no traction with and told to run with it. A great thing about being part of a sales team at a start up though, is that the agencies that havent developed yet can sometimes have names like Mediacom, Mindshare, and BBDO. I quickly started hitting the keyboard and the phones and using my new T&E budget with the ease of a seasoned industry vet. By the end of Q1 2007 I was the top seller at the company, a title I wouldn't give up until I moved into management in 2011. From November 2006 to October 2007 (1 year) Greater New York City AreaCampaign Manager @ After dipping my toe in the digital water at Katz, I knew I had to make the move into the online business. I came to EyeWonder as a junior seller, but it quickly became apparent that an operational lead was what the team needed. I stepped into the role, and I quickly recieved the best ad tech education I could have asked for.
As a campaign manager I worked with media, ops, production, and creative from planning to execution. While working as a one man ops show for nine months was one of the more stressful times in my career, it gave me an intimate knowledge of the business that I wouldn't have known otherwise. That knowledge gave me a considerable advantage as I moved into a full on sales role with the company at the end of 2006. From February 2006 to November 2006 (10 months) Greater New York City AreaSales Coordinator @ Like many of the greats in this business, I got my start as a rep at Katz Media Group. First as an intern, then as a sales assistant, and finally as a sales coordinator I learned the ropes of the media sales business. I was fortunate to work with a great group of mentors and colleagues in Hyun Park, Mike Lum, Mike Fon, Steve Diamond, and the legendary Chickie Bucco.
It was from this group that I learned invaluable lessons in corporate citizenship, client management, and direct response sales. David Ogilvy famously said that everyone should spend their first two years in the business in direct response. He wasn't wrong. From August 2004 to February 2006 (1 year 7 months) Greater New York City Area
