Ignite Media Brands hires Kristen Dunatov, promotes Fleur Steinberg



Ignite Media Brands has hired Kristen Dunatov as New South Wales and Queensland sales manager. She joins from Ten, where she was sales manager for the Sydney operation.

Dunatov replaces Melissa Fein, who left to join Mindshare in August last year.

Ignite has also promoted group sales manager Fleur Steinberg to head of brand strategy – a newly created position. In her new role Steinberg, who joined Ignite in 2009, will lead a team that will act as “the conduit between Ignite’s channel partners and clients, crafting multiplatform and multi-brand sales solutions”, according to a press release.

Ivan Curic, Ignite’s national sales director, said: “These appointments reinforce Ignite Media Brands’ position as the premier conduit between channel partners and brands, and I’m very excited to have Kristen joining the team, and to have Fleur expand her responsibilities. Both Fleur and Kristen bring a tremendous amount of skill and experience to their respective roles, and with their expertise I’m confident more clients will benefit from the tremendous value in the brands that sit within the Ignite portfolio.”

Ignite handles ad sales for brands including MTV, Nickelodeon, TV1, Sci Fi, Movie Extra, Family Movie Channel and World Movies.
