It’s a pretty strong team to hit the marketplace with and all three are well-known in the biz. Compass Media Marketing, Compass Media Networks’ new ad rep firm for the audio industry, announced it has selected Paul Gregrey as President of Sales & Marketing; Mary Giesen as VP/Sales Planning, and Laura Peyer as New York Account Manager.
Effective 1/9 Paul Gregrey becomes President of Sales & Marketing. Gregrey spent almost a decade with Compass CEO Peter Kosann at Westwood One. He has also sold for FOX Sports West, AMFM Radio Networks, and the ABC Radio Network. Gregrey was once Westwood One’s President of Sales. He’ll work out of Compass’ LA office.
Effective 9/23 Mary Giesen becomes VP/Sales Planning. She previously worked at Westwood One where she rose through the sales management ranks, ultimately serving as VP/Sales Planning, Traffic & Continuity, managing the sales planning staff and overseeing the management of the commercial inventory.
Effective 1/30, Laura Peyer becomes Account Manager. She previously served as the Sports Network Sales Executive at Skyview Networks, managing advertising relationships with clients throughout the New York, New England and the Mid-West. Prior to Skyview, Ms. Peyer held positions as National Broadcast Supervisor at MPG (initially serving as a National Broadcast Buyer at MPG) and Sales Planner at Westwood One.
RBR-TVBR observation: In case you may be wondering, Compass did not “raid” Dial Global for Gregrey and Giesen. The two companies worked mutually in selecting them, as part of their newly-expanded relationship. Certainly, with this talent, Compass Media Marketing hits the ground running.
