Fresh on the heels of a 22% increase in revenue, EASTLAN RATINGS is bolstering its personnel. "This is a wonderful position to be in as this allows us to further enhance the level of service we can provide to our customers," EASTLAN Pres./CEO MIKE GOULD said. "
DAVID HASTINGS, a 30-year veteran of the radio ratings industry, has been promoted to the newly created position of Dir./Operations. Hastings will be responsible for the training and satisfaction of all EASTLAN customers. DENNIS SOAPES will fill Hastings' former position as Dir./Client Services-West. SOAPES brings 35 years of experience in local radio, radio syndication, and advertising to EASTLAN.
DONNA HALVERSON has been named Dir./Client Services-South. She has more than 40 years in local and network radio.
"The big winners today are those broadcasters who've chosen to trust EASTLAN as their ratings vendor." GOULD continued. " These moves will allow us to continue to provide them the excellent service they deserve while ensuring the rapid acceptance curve of EASTLAN RATINGS continues. As if this weren't enough, our new private equity partnership means we are fortunate to now have a good deal of dry powder on hand to strategically accelerate growth of our company," GOULD added. "If a leader is as smart as the team around them, I think my Mensa application should be arriving soon."
