Horizon Adds Weight

NEW YORK-Coming off a year of 60 percent billings growth, Horizon Media has bolstered its senior ranks with a new national broadcast director and two broadcast group managers.
The arrival of Nan Park as director of national broadcast coincides with the promotion of Aaron Cohen to executive vice president, director of broadcast. Cohen, 59, joined Horizon last year to fortify the independent shop’s network operations.
Park, 37, who last worked for the former BJK&E Media Group (now TN Media), is managing Horizon’s national TV group. Cohen oversees all broadcast operations, works on new business development and serves on the operating committee.
Horizon, with offices in New York and Los Angeles, now claims about $400 million in billings and is known for its spot buying expertise.
Park, who joined Horizon in time for last week’s upfront presentations, was a partner and group director of national broadcast at the former BJK&E. Earlier, she worked at the former Chiat/Day/Mojo.
Cohen, who considered four finalists, chose Park for her “depth of experience and reputation” within the sales community. “She’s a very organized and deliberate person whose views of running the business coincide with mine,” he said.
The new broadcast group managers are Janet Evelyn, 41, in spot TV, who ran buying service Evelyn & Associates in Los Angeles, and Alberta Roe, 48, in local radio, a former media director at The Lord Group here. ƒ
