PRESS RELEASE MAY 18th, 2016
The United Screens sales team have been awarded the prize Best Sales Organisation 2016 by Stockholm Media Week, arranged by Swedish Media Agencies.
The winner of the prize Best Sales Organisation 2016 was awarded today at Stockholm Media Week. The winner was United Screens, with this motivation from the jury:
In a reality where media buys based on data and tech are a large and growing part, every sales organisation must adapt to the developments in the market, which this year’s winner has done with flying colors. With curiosity, while focusing on the client’s business, they contribute both to content and creativity in an excellent manner. Mirror, mirror on the wall, who is the fairest of them all … on YouTube?
– Since we started, we’ve had a focus on cooperation with media agencies, and this makes us even more happy about today’s award. I’m overjoyed to share it with my fantastic colleagues at our sales department, says Nicole Haman, Sales Director, United Screens.
– Our sales grew by more than 150% last year, and we now offer more than 250 million monthly views in our premium network, from more than 500 creator partners. We can clearly see that the demand from the market just keeps growing. Some of our latest clients, that we’re happy to start working with now, are companies like Veet and Zenith, Planti and IUM, and Ellos, says Nicole Haman, Sales Director, United Screens.
– I’m incredibly impressed that our sales team gets this award, just 2.5 years after we launched. To us, this is a really a clear message that we have something very important to offer the market. Also, I think it’s a sign of the times that this award, for the first time ever, is given to a purely online media company, says Malte Andreasson, CEO of United Screens.
