Chris Fagot Joins 2G Digital as Vice President of Sales and Marketing
(January 14, 2014)
2G Digital today announces that Chris Fagot has joined the company as Vice President of Sales and Marketing. Fagot arrives with broad experience in the post production, entertainment and technology industries, having spent the past three years as Executive Director of Sales and Marketing at Deluxe.
In his new role, Fagot will lead 2G Digital's sales effort, overseeing client relations and driving new business development. His initial focus will be to develop a national sales and marketing strategy to capitalize on the film and television industry's growing reliance on digital fulfillment, and to build 2G Digital's brand as a leading independent provider of those services. 2G Digital's clients include Fox, Warner Bros., Disney, Fremantle Media, Lionsgate and Sony.
"Chris is a talented pro who brings tremendous energy, experience and enthusiasm to 2G Digital," said Stephen Buchsbaum, 2G Digital COO. "He joins us at an auspicious time and we expect him to be a key contributor to our growth and diversification."
Fagot observed that, as an independent, 2G Digital has the flexibility to implement new technologies and workflows required by a digital media landscape dominated by proliferating media formats and delivery channels. "We have the technical resources and personnel to compete with anyone, and a management team that is committed to remaining on the cutting edge of technology," Fagot said. "I took on this role because I saw an opportunity to lead and make a difference at an organization that is dynamic and has a clear vision."
Fagot brings more than 15 years of experience in management, sales and new media. At Deluxe, he led the sales and marketing of digital supply chain services for an organization that provided DVD, Blu-ray, localization, and digital distribution services to all of the major Hollywood studios. Prior to that he served as Director of Music Marketing for Lionsgate, and his background also includes tenures with DreamWorks Records, SFX Entertainment and Geffen Records.
