Hearst Magazines Digital Media (HMDM) has announced that Mark Marvel will join the company as director of video sales and marketing.
As director of video sales and marketing, Marvel will be in charge of driving sales and providing marketing leadership for HMDM’s video offerings, including a slew of original programming previewed at the 2016 NewFronts. Marvel will report directly to HMDM senior vice president and CRO Tom Haskell.
“Our team produces more than 150 videos each week, from clever recipe hacks on Delish to smoky-eye tutorials on Elle to documentaries on Cosmo," Haskell said in a statement. "Demand for video is increasing exponentially, from both consumers and marketers, and Mark will work with the sales, marketing, and audience dev teams across our portfolio to find and deliver the perfect opportunities.”
Marvel joins the company from Time Inc., where he led video sales strategy for Time and Time.com. Previously, he held a number of digital and video sales leadership roles for Microsoft businesses including Skype, MSN, MSNBC, and Sidewalk.
