“We are honored to have such an elite group of leaders join our executive team,” said John Bowser, founder and CEO of PremiumMedia360. “Attracting talent of this caliber is both a testament to the foundation we’ve built so far, and the right additions at the helm to help steer the company into our next phase of growth this year and next. We are thrilled to welcome them all to PM360.”

PremiumMedia360 said it has grown, working with 1,000 TV stations and 700 ad agencies and buying groups.

It expects further market expansion next year as industry standards change, it gets involved in new partnerships and the COVID-19 pandemic drives stations and networks to streamline operations and gain efficiencies.
