Zimmerman promoted at Sony Pics TV


Stuart Zimmerman has been upped to executive vp advertiser sales at Sony Pictures Television.

Zimmerman, who was senior vp, oversees national ad sales in first-run and off-network syndicated properties. This includes the 30-second business and direct response; with the promotion, he adds oversight of the 10-second business.

Based in New York, Zimmerman also will assist the business development team as they identify new opportunities for SPT's ad sales business across multiple platforms.

Zimmerman joined Sony in 1998 as an account executive and was promoted to vp in 2000. As senior vp advertiser sales, he oversaw day-to-day operations for the group.

He reports to SPT president of advertiser sales Amy Carney.

"Stuart has been an anchor for the ad sales group for many years," Carney said. "He is a natural leader and plays an invaluable role in evolving our ad sales business."

Before Sony, Zimmerman worked in advertiser sales at King World and Eyemark. He began his career in 1986 at BBDO in the television buying department before moving to Saatchi and Saatchi.
