At Vector Media, we’ve got a bone to pick with the Bard. To us, all the world’s a canvas. A canvas that is integrated, dynamic, and increasingly technological. A canvas on which to tell rich and relevant brand stories. At Vector, we make the most of this canvas, connecting brands to consumers through an innovative media platform that inspires creativity and delivers measurable impact.
We work with brands to create meaningful experiences out in the world that make people stop, look up from their phones, and smile. How? The answer is simple (and one even Shakespeare could get behind). At Vector Media, we help brands Tell Better Stories.

We value learning, as well as the ambition and perseverance it requires.
We’re unabashedly cheeky at times, and never take ourselves too seriously.

A diehard Michigan Wolverines fan, Chad has a unique appreciation for the razor thin margin between victory and defeat. And as his leadership at Vector proves, he knows what it takes to win.

Chief Revenue Officer
Gary began his out-of-home media career in the London office of Transportation Displays Incorporated (TDI, formerly CBSOutdoor, now Outfront Media). Less than a year after Vector’s founding, Gary was brought on to launch the sales department. Now with two decades of experience, and a focus on innovation and audience insights, he serves as the company’s CRO. With a focus on customer service, Gary leads a team of 50 sales professionals in dozens of markets around the country with the same energy he had on his first day, 20 years ago.

Chief of Staff
Lauren has a knack for translating our visions and dreams into actionable, strategic plans. With a Harvard Law degree and business development experience in Silicon Valley, she’s the first line of defense for our C-Suite. Lauren provides direct support for our CEO and COO, and ensures business initiatives move forward. At Vector, we like to come up with wild ideas and make them happen. To her credit, Lauren refuses to meet us halfway. Instead, she meets us on the moon, where we figure out how to leapfrog to the stars.
Chief Technology Officer
Dan is affectionately known as “Doc” around here, because when it comes to computers he’s a veritable brain surgeon. He leads the team responsible for Vector’s internal core technology systems and services. If that weren’t enough, Dan simultaneously acts as the CTO of SkyFox Wireless, a Vector subsidiary that provides mobile high-speed connectivity to transit providers. Pretty much anything that beeps or has flashing lights around here, Doc heads up the team that keeps it healthy.
Chief Strategy Officer
A creative storyteller with an analytical and consultative approach, Jim is key to guiding Vector’s business strategy.

Executive VP of Sales
As the Executive VP of Sales, Chris has somehow found a way to oversee dozens of markets across the country, serve as a highly requested client-facing brand ambassador, and divvy up the remainder of his time amongst the internal Sales team. It’s these skills, along with over 20 years of experience, that he’s used to drive his current team of account executives to redefine the boundaries of out-of-home media. Don’t even think about challenging him to a push-up contest.
Executive VP of Operations
Magnus is the type of guy whose laugh enters the room well before he does. Hilarious and infectious, it fills the halls at Vector, so you always have a good idea when to expect him. Magnus tirelessly leads the national Operations team, ensuring the flawless execution of every campaign. He has come to represent the very definition of reliability around here. If Magnus promises to get something done, he will move mountains to make sure that it happens.
Executive VP of Transit Media
A veteran in the industry with a boatload of experience in out-of-home transit, David manages all of Vector’s public transit markets, including leading local sales teams. David was definitely not hired just because his initials are D.D., the same as our signature Double Deckers. But if he picks up the nickname “Double D,” he’ll know it comes from a good place.
VP of Regional Sales
Jonathan is nothing if not reliable. Well, okay, he’s one thing: always in a good mood. His dependability and chipperness both come in handy when he’s managing his energetic and diverse Sales team. Jonathan is like a mother hen to his flock of account executives—keeping them warm and close when they need support, but also encouraging them to take the risks they need to grow.
VP of National Sales
If an undeniable magnetism is central to the Leo persona, then consider us true believers of the astrological chart. Laura’s a Leo through and through. She possesses an innate charisma, a big heart, and wears a constant smile. It’s these characteristics that make her perfectly suited to manage Vector’s national agency and client relationships.
VP of Finance / Controller
A self-proclaimed Excel nerd, James is Vector’s resident data wizard. Efficiency and adaptability are the keys to James’ success as he approaches new challenges with an inquisitive and analytical mindset. When not building macros or complex formulas, James calmly and methodically orchestrates the organized chaos of an ever-changing financial landscape.
VP of Strategic Partnerships
Justin’s diligence and inquisitiveness perfectly balance his charming, easy-going personality. His role at Vector is similarly balanced; he manages the company’s relationships with inventory partners while also seeking and developing new business. Needless to say, he’s the perfect guy for the job.
Senior Director of Production Services
Tina has her eye on every campaign Vector activates. She’s the mastermind of our streamlined production process, from creative conceptualization to producing final pieces for posting. Tina’s impromptu dance parties to the Smiths, staged at her desk, help keep the process moving along.
Senior Director of Sales Operations
Vector’s Sales team reaches far and wide, tethered by the Sales Support team at home base. This is where Arielle comes in. Arielle leads and manages the Sales Support team, while simultaneously ensuring all Sales management initiatives are seamlessly integrated. Arielle is the anchor to the Sales sail. She’s the captain of her fleet.
Senior Director of Marketing
Luke’s relocation from Sydney, Australia to New York City isn’t the only reason you could describe his work as “out of home.” In the role of Director of Marketing, Luke is the conductor of Vector’s artistic orchestra, working strategically and creatively with his team to deliver contemporary symphonies. As the head of branding, communications, and lessons in Aussie slang, the compositions he puts together are (usually) music to our ears.
Director of Information Technology
Drumroll please… Other than maintaining all of Vector’s hardware and software, Brendan’s a talented percussionist. If you think about it, the two aren’t that different. Brendan’s an expert at deftly ensuring multiple things continue to run smoothly and in rhythm. As information flows between Vector’s offices coast to coast, Brendan calmly mans the controls, ensuring nobody ends up with whiplash.
Senior Director of Accounting
Mirlinda manages the day to day processes in the Accounting department. A Vector O.G., Mirlinda started from the bottom as an intern in 2011. As a result, she has the foundation to analyze growth and is always looking to see what we can do more efficiently. Mirlinda’s role is to capture every dollar in and every dollar out. It’s always “busy season” in Vector’s accounting world as they keep up with new ventures from the exec team.
Director of Events
Take a number! A Vector veteran, Sara has been involved, at one point or another, in every area of our Sales and Marketing departments. She’s at the heart of an increasingly long list of different projects, so the line outside of her office can get a little long. As the Director of Events, Sara is responsible for a smorgasbord of company events and initiatives, as well as project management for our Experiential division.
Director of Transit Operations
Dave got his start in transit advertising a long time ago in a bus yard far, far away… (Ok, it was in 2009 and the bus yard was in Massachusetts). Since then, Dave has sold, designed, and installed transit displays across the country, in addition to supporting nationwide sales and business development. These days, Dave works to ensure our transit displays are the envy of the entire galaxy.
