CMG CFO Exits To Join Live Entertainment Logistics Firm


The EVP/Chief Financial Officer for Cox Media Group has departed the Apollo Global Management-controlled owner of radio and TV stations to take a similar role at a live event entertainment logistics and high net worth shipping and freight company.

J.P. Hannan, who worked as EVP/CFO at AutoWeb prior to joining CMG, is joining Global Critical Logistics (GCL), overseeing the financial performance and profitability strategies for GCL units including Rock-it Cargo, Dietl, Dynamic, CARS, Cosdel, Xtreme and Dell Will.

Hannan is also known for his tenure as CFO of Cumulus Media and for the former Lincoln Financial Media. He began his career in finance at Lambert Television.

Hannan is a member of Academy of Television, Arts & Sciences, and previously served on the Radio Music License Committee.

“My focus will be on strengthening the financial backbone of the organisation, enabling us to navigate challenges and capitalise on new opportunities in the dynamic markets we operate in,” Hannan said. “It is a privilege to be part of a company that values its employees, embraces diversity, and contributes positively to the community. I am excited to immerse myself in the culture and contribute to its continued success.”

In a related move, CGL has upped Erin Cutri to VP/Finance and will work alongside Hannan.
