Vice President, Distribution and Technology
Discovery Communications, LLC
I've worked on several job searches with Tony at Discovery & CBS and he is an absolute pleasure to work with.
He is the consummate professional - very detail oriented, providing great preparation for interviews. He always makes you feel like a friend and truly cares for his clients.
I highly recommend Tony for executive searches and recruiting - he is a true gentleman in this industry.
Top Rank engaged Filcro Media Staffing’s president, Tony Filson to recruit our current Executive Vice President of Global Business Development & Marketing.
The executive search process was professional and expedited by Tony’s media industry relationships and acumen.
The executive hired has been a substantial contributor to Top Rank and I would recommend Filcro Media Staffing highly.
CEO & Co-Founder TCN
SVP VIACOM | BET Networks
I have known and worked with Tony for over 10 years and would consider him a major professional asset.
Originally recruiting me to Viacom, then utilizing his services to hire more than 30 people in different capacities, to being an advisor to my company and heading our Compensation Committee, Tony's guidance has been invaluable to me personally and professionally.
When our holding company wanted to spin-off our TV Network asset TCN, Tony found buyers and brought the deal to fruition.
I would highly recommend Tony Filson and Filcro Media Staffing!
President & CMO Washington Redskins
EVP Formula Racing
MLB | Washington Nationals & Montreal Expos
Please accept this letter to represent my strong endorsement of Filcro to operate well above standard in the sports and broadcasting industry.
I am confident to write that Filcro offers exceptional recruitment resources in the sports industry for a number of reasons. As someone who has run the revenue, marketing and operational aspects of several professional sports franchises, I am very familiar with the roles that Filcro can fulfill.
I am formerly …
President of Business Operations and Chief Marketing Officer of the Washington Redskins
Executive Vice President of A1 Team USA Formula Racing (the US entry to A1 Grand Prix)
Lead Representative on behalf of the Washington DC Region to MLB in the successful campaign to bring the Montreal Expos to the market (now The Washington Nationals)
If I did not have actual contractual experience with Filcro, then this letter would be less credible. However, the Filcro performance and the ultimate successful completion of a high level retained executive search while I created The Broadcast Network was exemplary.
Not only did Filcro develop an exceptional 4-person cohort; your candid assessments of my thinking was invaluable. Indeed Tony, your opinion of the right person for the role in contrast to my initial strong opinion proved your value.
Filcro has strong experience in the sports and broadcasting arenas. I have managed all operations and hired hundreds of people into the properties mentioned above.
The broad Filcro experience in baseball, boxing, hockey, basketball and extreme sports is the credibility for consideration.
The intangibles to your firm that I know of, are what define the Filcro difference and are what make you all great.
Director of Human Resources
SONY | BMG Entertainment
I first worked with Tony when I was recruiting for BMG Music and subsequently for SONY.
His candidates were always well screened and very well qualified. I worked with Tony on the hard to fill positions. He always came through for us.
On the personal side, I always appreciated his calm demeanor, his knowledge of the business and, at times, his gentle way of talking me off the ledge!
Tony is a true professional and a valuable business partner.
I want to take this opportunity to thank Tony Filson for the excellent work he did during our search for a News Director.
Filcro Media Staffing was our first experience with a retained recruiting company. My only regret is that we didn't connect seven years ago.
Your recruiting process, vetting and follow through was amazing. After thoroughly understanding our situation you got us from over 150 applications to 5 semi-finalists to 3 finalists to our ultimate choice.
You were with us every step of the way. Our News Director hire was everything we hoped for.
I would recommend you to anyone looking for a true partner in finding and hiring great people who are broadcasting executives for stations, station groups or Networks.
Thanks again, Chuck
Senior Vice President
