SVP, Sales Strategy

Comcast Spotlight

When it comes to the fast-changing multiscreen world, John Tierney has become Comcast Spotlight’s go-to expert and strategist as the TV ecosystem evolves into a chaotic mix of platforms, devices and consumer behaviors. Selling into that environment is no picnic, even for the most learned brands. So having an ally like Tierney has become increasingly vital as clients seek new solutions for a Brave New TV World. And it’s a good thing because Tierney continues to prove his worth as he deftly juggles multiple responsibilities at the biggest MSO with the most robust ad sales operations in the industry—one that touches local, regional and national clients. Perhaps Tierney’s biggest asset is his bi-coastal perspective, having spent time at AdLink and KCAL-TV in Los Angeles as well as a stint at Television Program Enterprises and Blair TV in New York during different points of his career. These days, he’s all East Coast and married with two kids in Montclair, NJ.
