Tony Filson — Filcro Media Staffing

Tony Fil­son is Pres­i­dent & CEO at Fil­cro Media Staffing, a recruit­ment com­pa­ny estab­lished in 1985 which deals with the high­ly spe­cial­ized staffing con­cerns of com­pa­nies with­in the pub­lic and pri­vate media broad­cast­ing indus­tries. Recruit­ing from man­ag­er to C lev­el posi­tions, the com­pa­ny has worked with a long list of clients, includ­ing FedEx, Inno­v­a­tive Com­mu­ni­ca­tions Cor­po­ra­tion, Dis­cov­ery Com­mu­ni­ca­tions, Stu­dio 360, The Walt Dis­ney Com­pa­ny, Sony Music, Uni­vi­sion, HBO, Via­com, ABC, Com­cast, ChaCha, Bet Net­works, The Home Shop­ping Net­work, WNYC, AT&T, Pru­den­tial, MetLife, Com­e­dy Cen­tral and Time Warner.

Long term alliances with Fil­cro Media Staffing include the employ­ment lia­bil­i­ty com­pa­ny Mer­cer Con­sult­ing, the clas­si­fied, dis­play and dig­i­tal adver­tis­ing com­pa­ny P&H adver­tis­ing and the gov­ern­ment sys­tems and infor­ma­tion resources firm White Knight Inc.

Fil­cro Media Staffing helps to iden­ti­fy and recruit media exec­u­tives with­in a diverse range of nation­al and inter­na­tion­al mar­kets in the tech­ni­cal, busi­ness and cre­ative sec­tors, with the firm func­tion­ing across the US, Europe, South Amer­i­ca, The Mid­dle East, Africa and Asia. The firm’s recruit­ment oper­a­tions span TV, cable and satel­lite net­works, adver­tis­ing agen­cies, broad­band providers, OEM’s, gov­ern­ment bod­ies, pub­lic broad­cast­ers, dig­i­tal con­tent providers, telecom­mu­ni­ca­tions com­pa­nies, pub­lish­ers and film studios.

When posi­tions arise in com­pa­nies with­in these mar­kets, Tony Fil­son is fre­quent­ly iden­ti­fied and placed as Offi­cer in Charge to con­duct a search for the ide­al managerial/executive can­di­date. With increas­ing chal­lenges fac­ing diver­si­fy­ing media com­pa­nies, Filson’s expe­ri­ence and exten­sive port­fo­lio of media clients helps such com­pa­nies find can­di­dates with the skills, per­son­al­i­ty and over­all vision to help main­tain via­bil­i­ty in the 21st century.

Fil­son is also the chair­man at Fil­cro Media Staffing’s par­ent com­pa­ny Fil­cro Per­son­nel. He is a board mem­ber at P&H adver­tis­ing, which deals print and inter­ac­tive clas­si­fied adver­tis­ing in the US, the EU and South Amer­i­ca. He also works with the US Gov­ern­ment and NGO’s to increase the qual­i­ty of com­mu­ni­ca­tion and push for polit­i­cal, social and eco­nom­ic reforms. His com­mend­able stance on diver­si­ty and equal­i­ty is shown through his actions not only out­side Fil­cro, but inside Fil­cro. Out of the six man­age­r­i­al posi­tions with­in Fil­cro, four are held by women, and­he also ensures that oppor­tu­ni­ties for inter­nal pro­gres­sion are avail­able, with the pro­mo­tion of two Fil­cro mem­bers of staff made in 2011.

This shows that Filson’s firm knows the impor­tance of diver­si­ty, not just in terms of his employed work­force, but in the range of avail­able media exec­u­tives cov­ered with every exec­u­tive search. Just as impor­tant as diver­si­ty to Fil­son is inclu­sion, and Filcro’s recruit­ment modal­i­ty makes sure that every exec­u­tive search case includes every qual­i­fied poten­tial can­di­date avail­able for the position.

Fil­son also com­mits much of his company’s resources towards pro bono requests and assis­tance in exec­u­tive search for non-prof­it media orga­ni­za­tions and NGO’s that help to serve the dis­ad­van­taged. While they are always busy with pay­ing clients, their com­mit­ment to pro bono requests is indica­tive of Filson’s vision for bet­ter recruit­ment practice.

Pri­or to work­ing at Fil­cro, Fil­son was the Man­ag­ing Direc­tor of Sales at Group W. He was edu­cat­ed at the New York Mil­i­tary Academy.
