Candidates should have an ad sales director or agency media director

background but magazine experience is not essential.



Chief executive Richard Cohen commented: ’The person should have an

understanding of media in general and be able to provide a strategic

overview with skills in systems and management.’



Launched 12 months ago, Inside Film claims to be the largest film title

in the UK with an ABC free distribution of 524,000. Each issue serves as

a programme for a specific film, and features interviews with the main

stars.



The 36-page title carries up to 15 pages of ads from companies such as

Haagen-Dazs, Toyota and PlayStation. The ad team of five, managed by

Graham Finneberg, has recently been strengthened by the appointment of a

new sales executive - Chris Dicey from Northern & Shell’s Attitude

magazine.



Inside Film is looking to expand the brand overseas and into radio,

video and the internet. It has appointed Carmen Menegazzi, the former

managing director of Columbia Tri Star Films UK, to spearhead this

strategy. A test market in the US will begin on 17 December with the

release of the film Stuart Little. A national rollout is planned for

June 2000.
