Foxtel Media elevates company veteran to chief sales officer

Foxtel Media has announced that Nev Hasan will take on the role of chief sales officer for the Foxtel Group.

Hasan has been with the company since 2012, most recently as executive director of agency sales. He has been instrumental in the merger of the company’s TV and digital sales to simplify the ad buying experience for the industry.

Hasan will now be responsible for the management of Foxtel Media’s salesforce of over 200 in Australia, while sports sales will remain under the purview of Foxtel Media Sales and Brand Partnerships Director, Martin Medcraf.

Prior to Foxtel Media, Hasan held positions at SMG RED, Yahoo!7 and Ninemsn.

“Nev Hasan has been a bastion of creative innovation for Foxtel Media for over 15 years,” Mark Frain, CEO of Foxtel Media said.

“He is a truly visionary leader that has always taken the time to deep dive into our agency and partners’ pain points in the ad-buying process and drive internal, structural change to ensure these are addressed.

“He is a stalwart of the industry and I’m delighted that he’s taking on this new role.”
