Joining the company are two audio sales experts, Leslie Sturm and Jeana Meade, whose new roles will focus on driving agency relationships, expanding the sales portfolio and further generating revenue across Skyview’s evolving sales platforms.
Sturm, a well-respected New York City-based executive, comes to Skyview Networks as the newest Vice President, Network Sales following an extensive background at the agency and advertising sales levels. Her fierce pace and unrivaled dedication to growing the business have earned her strong recognition across multiple corporations and with over 25 years of experience, she has gained a wealth of knowledge in audio and digital sales, making her a key strategic asset in the future of Skyview Networks.
Jeana Meade, a highly successful 20-year broadcast audio veteran has brought her leadership and creativity into the fold as Skyview’s newest Network Audio Manager. With expertise in Consumer Packaged Goods, she has proven herself as a top performer and is highly regarded amongst industry professionals. Her approach and passion for audio have allowed Skyview to showcase its turnkey potential as it heads into a competitive year.
“Leslie and Jeana’s tremendous experience and stellar industry knowledge will be a driving force for sales on both coasts,” said Jeanne-Marie Condo, President of Network Partnerships and Chief Revenue Officer at Skyview Networks. “Each of them has hit the ground running, fitting in perfectly with our current culture while bringing their unique skills forward, and we are thrilled to have them on board to help lift our initiatives to new levels.”
Further defining the expansion, Skyview has created an entry-level Network Account Executive program developing young talent through mentorship by the company’s senior-level sales team. The newly created program has lent itself to the evolving roles of four up-and-coming sales executives Matthew Hinkle, Sam McKarns, Kam Hood and Rob Niess. As new and significant business comes to fruition, the goal for Skyview is to cultivate the next generation of network audio sales executives.
Condo added, “Our ultimate goal is to elevate our talented young professionals for tomorrow’s network future. These bright and energetic executives have displayed promising leadership through their work on new business and major accounts. Collectively, we are proud to have built an avenue within Skyview to build brilliant futures in the network audio space.”
