Dial Global announced the promotion of Charles Steinhauer to Chief Operations Officer. In this role, Steinhauer will be responsible for overseeing the management of the company’s day to day operations–including technology, distribution, research, compliance, and strategy. He will continue to be located in New York City and will report directly to Paul Caine, CEO.
Steinhauer was most recently Dial Global’s President of Operations, where he managed all sales support divisions for Dial Global.
He began his career as an Account Executive with Venture Direct Worldwide, a business-to- business direct marketing firm. In 1997, he took a position as research analyst at Winstar Global Media, which eventually merged with Dial Communications to form Dial Global. In 2005, while working as the Senior Vice President of Operations, Steinhauer was instrumental in launching Dial Global’s first RADAR rated network, the first by an independent network firm.
In 2007 he was promoted to Executive Vice President and also elected to Chair of the Network Radio Research Council (NRRC). He is a Board Member of the Media Ratings Council.
In addition to his role at Dial Global, he is one of the leads on an industry wide research initiative working to improve how radio is incorporated into Marketing Mix Models, which are widely used by advertisers to evaluate how product sales are influenced by advertising.
“I’m very excited to be working with Paul Caine and to continue to move the company forward with all of the Dial Global family,” said Charles Steinhauer. “I look forward to working even more closely with our staff and our outstanding content and distribution partners to create optimum value for our audiences and advertisers. I couldn’t be more fortunate.”
Paul Caine, Dial Global’s CEO, said “I am thrilled to be able to recognize Charles for the work he has been doing and for the leadership role he has in the organization and within the industry We have forged a great partnership and I look forward to having him alongside me as we take Dial Global to the next level.”
