Ed Wilson has been chosen to lead Cox Media Group (CMG)’s national ad platform businesses, CoxReps and Gamut, as the Executive Chairman.
In his new role, Wilson will “leverage each businesses’ leadership position in the media industry to drive continued innovation and pursue sustainable growth strategies,” CMG says.
“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,” CMG President/CEO Kim Guthrie notes. “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 Company, 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,” Wilson says. “I’m honored and energized by the opportunity to help these two great companies achieve their full potential.”
