Sherman Kizart launches Kizart Media Partners sales and marketing firm

(January 12, 2009) Kizart Media Partners, a sales and marketing consulting firm, has been launched to provide its media clients revenue growth through targeted strategic initiatives. KMP's Managing Director, Sherman Kizart, says the Chicago-based company is uniquely positioned to deliver results based on his 20-year of experience in leveraging relationships with advertisers and agencies.

Prior to forming the new firm, Kizart was Senior Vice President/Director of Urban Marketing of Interep, Inc., where he managed new business development and marketing/merchandising initiatives of Interep's 300-plus Urban Radio clients. Among his accomplishments was securing, planning and placement of the $10 million Obama For President ad campaign in partnership with the Fuse Advertising agency.

Kizart has also been regularly sought out to address critical issues affecting the African-American consumer market, broadcasters, advertisers and policy makers. Most recently he was appointed by FCC Commissioners Jonathan Adelstein and Robert McDowell to chair the Commission's Discriminatory Joint Advertising Initiative.

For nearly a decade, Kizart was the driving force the annual Power of Urban Radio Symposium, the industry's most anticipated conference bringing together advertisers, marketers and broadcasters.

Before his 13-year tenure at Interep, Kizart held executive sales management positions at stations owned by Clear Channel Communications, Hawes-Saunders Broadcasting, and D. Rivers Broadcasting Co.

"Launching Kizart Media Partners was the next logical and strategic move for me," said Kizart. "In today's challenging economy and fast changing media landscape, there's never been a greater need to help media companies generate more sales for their platforms. We look forward to bringing a proven track-record of developing and applying solutions that are strategically sound and tactically sharp in getting a win-win for the client partners we serve."
