Stack Media Steals Southern Progress Sales Dev Director

Stack Media, a company dedicated to covering the explosion in high school sports, recruited Karen Scott to be its director of digital marketing and advertising solutions.

Scott comes from Southern Progress Corporation, which recently had a staff shake up, where she was sales development director of SPC Digital.

Before SPC, Scott worked as marketing manager at ESPN.com, which likely gave her both the experience and contacts for her new job.
