Kaz resigns position at MTV after ten years

Boris Kaz, MTV’s senior vice-president of ad sales, resigned

abruptly at the end of last week after ten years with the satellite

channel.



Kaz walked out of MTV last Friday, and it is unclear whether he has

another position to go to. An MTV spokeswoman insisted there was no

acrimony in his decision to leave the company.



His departure prompted a reshuffle in the MTV advertising department,

announced this week. Chris Dobson, Simon Lewis and Jonathan Patrick, all

vice-presidents of advertising sales, will now report directly to Harvey

Ganot, the worldwide president of advertising sales for MTV

Networks.



However, a UK-based senior vice-president is likely to be appointed to

take over Kaz’s responsibilities and head the sales team.



Kaz joined MTV Europe at its inception in 1987 as a senior sales

executive in the advertising sales department. He was later promoted to

the role of senior vice-president and was instrumental in growing and

developing MTV’s ad sales revenue.



He oversaw the drive for ad revenue as part of MTV’s regional expansion,

such as the launch of dedicated regional services, including MTV UK,

which began broadcasting to UK viewers in October.
