Politico Adds to Sales Team

This falls into the category of dry internal memos. Politico hires Doug Wiley to be the new director of strategic accounts.

“We are beating the competition on all counts,” says VP Roy Schwartz in the e-mail. “Doug will help us take things to a new level.” (Translation: Doug will never sleep again.)

I am delighted to announce an exciting new addition to POLITICO’s Sales Department:

After several months of searching for the perfect fit, we have filled our new Director of Strategic Accounts position. Doug Wiley comes to us with a solid background on Capitol Hill, the Executive Branch and as a senior government relations executive for Alcatel, Electronic Industries Alliance, Telecommunications Industry Association and most recently the National Association of Broadcasters. Doug will help consult with clients and prospects at the highest levels on why POLITICO should be part of their messaging strategy to reach opinion leaders.

Doug is joining a world class team at a time of incredibly strong growth. We are well ahead of our revenue targets and we are beating the competition on all counts. Doug will help us take things to a new level.
