Jon Sayer Named Senior Vice President, Clear Channel Airports
NEW YORK -- July 15, 2013
Clear Channel Outdoor Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: CCO) today announced the
appointment of Jon Sayer to the role of Senior Vice President for Clear
Channel Airports, a brand division of CCO that is the world’s number one
marketer of airport advertising and the premier innovator of contemporary
display concepts for airports. Sayer assumes this key role on the Clear
Channel Outdoor – North America senior management team, reporting to Toby
Sturek, Executive Vice President of Specialty Businesses.
Sayer will lead key strategic aspects of Clear Channel Airport’s business and
be responsible for the company’s new business development while also deepening
the existing relationships Clear Channel Airports holds with major advertising
clients and their agencies, as well as airport clients themselves --
relationships that are typically defined by exclusive, long-term agreements.
Sayer brings more than fifteen years’ experience delivering significant growth
for world-class media organizations. Most recently, he served as Vice
President of the Comcast Media 360 division of Comcast Cable, where he led
sales strategy with national, regional and local advertisers. There, he helped
to define the cross platform value proposition of Comcast Media 360,
leveraging the company’s TV, online, mobile, tablet and video on demand
platforms, and then architected new multimillion dollar, multiplatform deals
with key clients. Previously, Sayer served in several leadership roles with
the Walt Disney Company where he distinguished himself as a top sales
performer and established new TV networks as lucrative advertising businesses.
“Airport environments are a competitive microcosm within the out-of-home (OOH)
industry where technology is driving the development of new solutions that
offer the more engaging, immersive brand experiences today’s marketers are
looking for,” said Sturek. “Airports also often provide the environments where
OOH innovations are tested and proven and Clear Channel Airports established
its leadership position in the industry through a culture of continuous
improvement, making airports worldwide more profitable. I am confident that
Jon’s experience in driving client support for new media and new business
models, as well as his track record inspiring winning teams, make him the
right partner for me and the Clear Channel Airport’s team.”
