Discussion Hosts
Harvin Furman, director of market investments, has spent his entire career maximizing client media investments through strategic and artful negotiations. His role overseeing a cross-platform team of negotiators gives him both a mile-high and granular view of the media marketplace — and a mighty smart take on market investments.
Melanie Skoglund, group planning director, specializes in developing creative media solutions for challenging marketing situations, but grounds them in sound strategy to contribute to regular client business growth. Her 360-degree approach and reliable bottom-line results keep her "out front" as an industry thinker.
Chris Wexler, group planning director, ensures agency media plans make connections in all the right places. He has a keen eye for harnessing the full potential of digital and emerging-media forms to deliver against outcome-based objectives — and lots of opinions about how a brand can effectively tap that power.
