The firm enjoys regional market dominance with sports team(s), sports venue, sports broadcasting and newspaper holdings. Through MSO, Satellite and Broadband distribution the client company was seeking to enhance and expand their National presence through the development and production of additional sports and sports oriented television programming. Client Situation  The President / GM as well as the CFO of the Network proceeded to identify an executive search firm toconduct a national search to identify a new Vice President of Programming. The President / GM based in Boston, MA met with the Filcro Media Staffing Office in Charge, Tony Filson in New York prior to retaining the firm and subsequently invited Filcro Media Staffing to Boston, MA to meet with the CFO and review the Network's facilities and relevant staff that would be under the direction of the new Vice President of Progr amming.  Executive Search Industry and Sector Inclusion Network & Cable Television BroadcastingRegional Sports NetworkSports Venues & Sports TeamsNetwork & Syndicated Television Programming ProducersDomestic and International Newspaper HoldingsThe President / GM and the CFO, with the President / GM acting as the point of contact, identified Filcro Media Staffing andTony Filson functioning as Officer in Charge of Search to conduct a national search to identify the proper Vice President of Programming. Filcro Media Staffing is Retained  Filcro Media Staffing Officer in Charge of Search Tony Filson met with the CFO and GM and commenced with the search byfirst establishing a consensus of the CFO and GM as to the weighting of the operational, tactical, creative and strategic skillsrequired. Based on Filcro Media Staffing’s experience with similar programming and development searches it was theopinion of Filcro Media Staffing that a proper pool of appropriate executives could be drawn from a multitude of Nationalcompetitors based on the experience required and the compensation being offered.Filcro Media Staffing’s Tony Filson was provided with organizational charts and overviews of operations, production,facilities, programming, budgets, marketing, sales and associated personnel in Boston, MA. The O&D Charting, budgets,equipment lists and marketing materials provided by the CFO provided great insight into what synergistic changes wouldneed to be initiated by the new Vice President of Programming to meet projected programming goals.The CFO and GM afforded Filcro Media Staffing autonomy during the initial phase of universe compilation and tiering Theestablished hierarchy of desired skill sets and industry experience during universe compilation and tiering only changedonce, with the key factors being a balance of development, operational, production, strategic and programming acumen thatcould be “attracted” based on compensation. The fact that Filcro Media Staffing reported to a single GM and not the entireownership facilitated a clear line and the executive ultimately identified was presented during the first month of the searchassignment.Filcro Media Staffing was fortunate to have such an active GM and CFO participate during the search. The GM had over 17years of experience with the Network. The cultural awareness of every department was extremely helpful in determining howeffective this Vice President of Programming would be in an environment that was not heavily layered. This senior most programming executive was being hired as one of the top 3 executives at this Regional Sports Network(RSN) to function strategically across all lines of business.Due to current programming and co-production issues the search required a very well rounded Vice President who wouldplay more of a strategic role then tactical with regard to creative development, production and branding of the Network asthey worked with Network Sales and “The Teams” to leverage the MLB and NHL properties owned. On the tactical side thisperson also had to function in Production, Operations, Post, Engineering and Traffic. A person with very diverse skill setsand great scope would be required to handle all these responsibilities. Some of the biggest challenges facing the new Senior Vice President were Change ManagementBest PracticesMentoringProduction, Post & Operations Facilities Build-OutCreative DevelopmentFinancial Management and Budget Controls of Programming and Production CostsInternal and External Marketing and Sales Relationships with Programming & ProductionBrand Development through On-Air Production ValuesMLB and NHL OwnershipOptimize Sports Marketing Across Media Platforms The Filcro Media Staffing Recruitment Solution  Tony Filson of    Filcro Media Staffing proceeded to Identify the best in industry Vice Presidents of Programming, Production,Operations and Senior Executive Producers with a proven record of success within and without of the Sports genre. Basedon the client’s need for an executive who could function in a very hands-on environment it was essential that any myopic or “too specialized candidates” be eliminated from the onset. NOTE:  One of the executives presented for this search are, as of 2013, considered the most profitable and prolific heads of TV programming in the World. An executive capable of focusing on “operational” issues while “creatively” developing different types of quality sports andnon-sports programming to strategically differentiate the Network from its competitors was essential.The Regional Sports Network (RSN) was now looking to expand their affiliate relationships through enhanced programmingand needed an executive who was accustomed to viability and ROI factors being as important as creative considerations for green-lighting programming, within a mature national broadcast company. With such unusual access to two professional sports teams (MLB) & (NHL) alongwith full production, operations and development autonomy, it was important that this new VP be able to mentor staff throughevery phase of the process to institute “Best Practices” that would enhance the operational, production and creative staff tothe point that they could quickly become part of the “enhanced” product sought by management (Baseball and Hockey TeamOwnership). In order to convince the associated teams, owners, sales and marketing heads that cooperation on every levelwould intimately benefit everyone concerned, it would take a mature broadcasting executive who could function tacticallyand strategically in every function as they developed new synergies across varied business linesWith the Network about to initiate a new build-out of production and broadcast operation facilities, this executive also had tohave strong engineering and operations capabilities with regard to distribution, production and post-production facilities. Therecent addition of full HD capabilities and solid relationships with satellite and MSO distribution for same, required that thisexecutive be able to capitalize on this great expenditure going forward creatively and technically Almost every Major TV Network, Cable Network and developer of sports programming was profiled for this search. Thissearch became the single most extensive recruitment effort the firm had conducted since 1985. Recruiting, screening andprofiling over 200 programming and production executives from every major media market in the United States was critical inallowing this client to choose from a broad spectrum of competitors that already enjoyed the type of distribution andprogramming initiatives they were looking to implementThe GM was setting exceptionally high standards for this person and wanted an executive who felt at ease with such abroad scope of responsibility. The GM being an extremely talented marketing executive prior to becoming President & GMalways kept clear Sales and Marketing goals in mind through the entire identification process. The GM never wavered or compromised in insisting that this new executive be as strong strategically as he was tactically and many talented sportsand non-sports programming and production executives and executive producers were passed over until his “ideal” wasidentified. Successful VP Programming Recruited  A Senior Vice President of Programming, Production and Operations form one of the worlds largest sports televisionnetworks.  A 24-year veteran in the television broadcast and cable industry, this executive joined the new Network following a five-year stint at Fox Sports Net in Los Angeles, California.
