Subsequent to Filcro Media Staffing being retained 

Filcro Media Staffing with Tony Filson as Officer in Charge of Search  participated in a number of meetings in New York City with the Director of Global Corporate Communications who gave clear insights into the current and future plans for this critical environment within FedEx.

The DGC being a noted talented executive producer was looking for a distinctive feel to the current body of work of each candidate and provided reels of pieces in production currently that should be used as means while Filcro Media Staffing reviewed each producer's work.

Over 80 talented programming and production professionals were profiled from all over the world by Filcro Media Staffing for this Corporate Communications executive search. The search universe consisted of candidates from every ISIUC listed for review. After extensive interviews in New York City and Memphis and compiling three tiers of qualified candidates, when the top two candidates were placed side-by-side, it was difficult to choose just one, because both were a perfect fit from a creative, business and cultural perspective. 

Candidates were sourced from Asia, The Middle East, South America, Africa and the United States all relevant to FedEx from a business and cultural perspective.  The materials reviewed on each candidate were broad and included writing and production elements plus strategic justification statements.

Some of the challenges facing the new executive

  • Serving a Large and Varied Internal Client Base
  • Disseminating to Varied Audiences
  • Conveying Information to a Global Community of Diverse Cultures and Languages 
  • Adapting Programming to Diverse Media Platforms
  • Setting Global Production Standards - MENA | US | ASIA
  • Making Media Resources Apparent and Available to The Organization
  • Hiring and Managing Staff to Facilitate Rapidly Changing Needs

Filcro Media Staffing proceeded to Identify global organizations with specific "production" and “programming” environments that produce quality content similar to the client’s needs.

Recruiting from the identified universe in the United States proved to be more productive than any other market.  Based on the necessity of identifying an executive who could garner internal consensus and partner with those outside of media environments who had media needs, we needed a person who could convey ideas in “English” and not “Media” at times.  The acceptance and assimilation into the corporate culture of a U.S. based Fortune 100 would make the balance of business, technical and creative skills a delicate undertaking.  Art versus science.

Successful Executive Recruited

A EMMY recipient and multiple EMMY nominee of work product directly related to the global interests of FedEx with TV and long form experience that creatively told compelling stories regardless of geographic or culture.  Also, as the recipient of the NANCY REYNOLDS AWARD while at ABC 20/20 she proved to be an exceptional talent who was recognized by her peers and the broadcasting community for her exceptionally high standards. 

As Executive Producer she had extensive international, domestic, creative and business experience with: ABC, Hallmark, MSNBC, History Channel, Discover Communications, Court TV, FOX and many others where her work was respected and recognized.

Her experience in the United States, Asia, The Middle East and Europe enabled her to relate to a diverse global community of employees, customers and cultures that make up the fabric of FedEx.

Her equal aplomb in a boardroom, production meeting or edit session made her a perfect fit for the demanding corporate culture she would be functioning within serving a diverse constituency. 


The corporate communications executive was successfully attracted and relocated to Memphis.

She has proven to be a vital resource in the conveyance of ideas, concepts, feelings and important messages to shareholders, the public, and over 200,000 dedicated employees from varied cultures who work for this leading global corporation.


The hiring executive and the corporate communications executive recruited by Filcro Media Staffing were both promoted with the former to Vice President of Strategic Communications at FedEx. and the other to Trade and Regulatory Affairs.  This was an extremely successful executive search for everyone involved.
