A nine-year DISH Network veteran has been named VP of DISH Media Sales, overseeing both DISH and Sling TV’s advertising sales, analytics and operations.
Brian Norris, who joined DISH Media Sales in 2008 to assist with the establishment of its flagship office in New York, takes the role.
Most recently, Norris led national advertising sales for DISH Media Sales.
He reports to Warren Schlichting, DISH EVP/Marketing, Programming and Media Sales.
“Brian has been a driving force behind DISH Media Sales since its inception, shaping a culture of thought leadership and professionalism within the organization,” Schlichting said. “As we push the envelope on smarter TV advertising, Brian’s leadership will continue the momentum and growth of the business.”
Norris commented, “We’re part of changing the definition of TV and with it, the definition of TV advertising. I’m proud to lead a team of sales innovators that has paved the way in unchartered territory from addressable advertising and programmatic TV to new opportunities offered by Sling TV.”
