SlimCut Accelerates Growth with Sales Team Expansion Across Canada

The video and social advertising company attracts talent from industry heavy weights to support Canadian growth.

 

TORONTO, November 7, 2017 – SlimCut Media, Canada’s pioneer in video and social advertising, has announced the arrival of four new members to their Canadian sales team.

The new team members bring a wide set of experience from Twitter, Clear Channel, RadiumOne and Adconion Direct to support the growing demand of SlimCut’s Outstream and Social advertising products.

Isabelle St-Amour will take the role of Director of Sales for the Quebec territory, based out of Montréal. Melyssa Wright, Brandon Cleary and Jaclyn Levesque join Ryan Noonan in Toronto to support agencies and clients for the rest of Canada. Alek Borscevski will continue to lead the team as Vice President of Sales.

“SlimCut’s new Social advertising product and increase in Outstream video demand from clients are what encouraged this expansion,” said Damien Veran, President of SlimCut Media. “We are very fortunate to have on-boarded such accomplished new hires to our Canadian sales team, and I look forward to seeing what this growth will bring for the company in the coming year.”

“We are very excited to have such seasoned professionals complement our existing sales team here in Canada,” said Alek Borscevski, SlimCut’s Vice President of Sales. “This growth will increase SlimCut’s presence amongst agencies and brands, and in turn will enhance our ability to meet the needs of our clients as we develop new business opportunities.”
