Ed Wilson To Head CoxReps And Gamut
Cox Media Group today announced that Ed Wilson will lead the company’s national ad platform businesses, CoxReps and Gamut, as the executive chairman.
“I’ve had the pleasure of knowing Ed for years — he is a business builder and a natural networker in both traditional and emerging media,” said CMG President-CEO Kim Guthrie. “His experience and industry relationships will serve him well in this role. We look forward to his perspective as we leverage our industry leading position to evolve these important businesses.”
Wilson’s background includes leadership positions at some of the industry’s leading media companies including The Tribune Co., Fox Broadcasting, NBC and CBS.
“Finding growth within an industry-leading organization depends as much on strategic focus and execution as it does an all-star executive line-up,” said Wilson. “I’m honored and energized by the opportunity to help these two great companies achieve their full potential.”
CoxReps Chief Operating Officer Ann Hailer and Soo Jin Oh, SVP of client solutions at Gamut, will continue in their current roles, reporting directly to Wilson.
