Futuri Adds Two To Its Sales Team


It is known across the Radio industry as a provider of AI-driven revenue, audience, and content growth products for broadcasters and digital publishers.

Now, Cleveland-based Futuri is welcoming a National Account Manager and a Director of Partner Support for Sales Intelligence to its employee roster.

Taking the National Account Manager role is David Russell, as Jessica Foster takes the latter post at Futuri.

Russell joins Futuri from Cox Media Group‘s Orlando operations, where he spent 15 years as a Senior Account Manager in its Radio and Digital Group. Russell has also hosted a radio show in which he discussed tactics and innovative concepts with marketing leaders throughout Central Florida. “At Futuri, Russell will work with broadcasting and digital publishing executives to help them meet and exceed their growth targets using Futuri solutions,” the company led by Daniel Anstandig notes.

On August 4, Russell will co-host with colleague Jim Tarantine a Futuri-presented webinar, “Turning a Slump Into a Success: Proactively Preparing for a Recession.”

Foster joins Futuri from Stephens Media Group, where she was a Director of Sales. Her previous experience includes similar roles at radio stations owned by Sinclair Broadcast Group and Cox Media Group. “At Futuri, Foster will ensure that partners of TopLine, the sales intelligence system that delivered $120 million in advertising and sponsorship revenue for its partners in 2021, are well-trained and super-served in all areas to maximize the ROI on their TopLine partnership,” the company says.
