Media Tech Firm Tieline Brings In A Broker For Top Sales Post


Many RBR+TVBR readers know Doug Ferber for his role as a media broker, heading Dallas-based DEFcom Advisors, and for his editorial work alongside now-retired Foster Garvey attorney Erwin Krasnow.

Now, radio industry engineers and C-Suiters charged with approving expenses will get to know Ferber for his new role at Tieline.

The audio codec manufacturer Tieline has tapped Ferber as its new VP/Sales, Americas, and is responsible for promoting and selling Tieline products throughout the U.S. and Latin America.

“We are excited Doug is joining our team as we continue to grow sales globally,” said Tieline CEO Will McLean. “He is highly regarded and adds a wealth of sales experience to the team. I know he will continue to provide our dealers and customers with the excellent service they’ve come to expect.”

Tieline manufactures STL, audio distribution and remote broadcast digital audio codecs. The company has offices in North America and Australia, supporting a global distribution network.

Ferber’s early career stints include a role as VP/GM for Interep Radio Sales, opening the Dallas office. He later spent a decade as a Senior Associate at Star Media Group.

Ferber has been the president and owner of DefCOM Advisors since February 2009. It is not known if he will continue his broker activities.
