Ben Shorb is AMG’s newest retail sales employee. Ben started his sales career in college at West Virginia University where he worked a retail sales job at Dick’s Sporting Goods. After college he started working for Comcast Spotlight (now called Effectv) selling Cable ads on networks like ESPN & HGTV, as well as targeted digital video advertising, which he did for five years before coming on with Alabama Media Group.
Ben credits gaining the tools and knowledge needed for real world sales to his training at Comcast Spotlight. “My education helped me understand the marketing and advertising industry as a whole but it was this training program where I really learned how to sell to businesses at a professional level.”
Now back in his hometown of Pensacola, FL, Ben enjoys pretty much any outdoor activities outside of work such as fishing, boating and wake-boarding as well as playing video games, making digital art and binge watching Netflix shows with his girlfriend and two dogs.
“My role at AMG is as an Account Executive covering the north western panhandle of FL and coastal Alabama, and I will be seeking out general retail business that we can help grow with our amazing suite of products,” said Shorb. “Coming from a large company I am thrilled to see the same level of resources and support that our company has to offer, and I could not be happier to be here!”
We are glad to add Ben to the team and can’t wait to see how he thrives in his new role.
