Clear Channel Communications Bob Pittman is adding to the top ranks at the company. The new Senior Vice President of Business Development and Corporate Strategy, Steven Cutler, is someone he knows well.
Cutler is a Member of Pilot Group, Pittman’s private equity investment company. In fact, like Pittman, he will continue to work for Pilot as well as Clear Channel. And Cutler won’t be moving to Texas – he’s staying in New York.
In his new role, Clear Channel’s announcement stated, Cutler will work with all parts of the company to execute key initiatives and strategies as determined by the CEO and operating division leadership. Cutler will also play a lead role in major strategic agreements for the company as well as its divisions as needed.
“Steven has a strong background in both business development and strategy across a number of industries. I’m confident that his broad background and relevant experience will be of great value as we take Clear Channel into stronger partner relationships and new areas of growth,” said Pittman.
Prior to his six years at Pilot Group, Cutler was an investment banker at Bank of America Merrill Lynch, where he worked on mergers and acquisitions and capital markets transactions for media and consumer/retail companies. He was also an analyst at Jupiter Media Metrix Research, focusing on helping client companies build the digital aspects of their businesses online and on mobile platforms.
