Showtime Promotes Dueling Program Marketing and Advertising Heads

And by “dueling” we actually mean duel dual. [ed.'s note: der!] It just sounds like a much more explosive story if they’re actually “dueling.”

Anyway, Showtime announced today that Susan Frank and Emily Gould will be named co-vice presidents of program marketing and advertising. Both Frank, a TBS vet, and Gould, who once worked with Reebok to relaunch The Pump in Europe, (seriously) have previously held Showtime’s senior director, program marketing and advertising position.

“The combined wealth of experience between Susan and Emily is unmatched,” says Showtime executive president Donald Buckley. “They have successfully spearheaded the marketing campaigns for six consecutive hit freshman series for this network, and manage a team that has a deep bench of talent. With Susan and Emily at the helm, we look forward to many more fruitful launches as we head into Comic-Con, the fall premieres of Homeland and Dexter, the return of our hit series in the spring, and our two new dramas in 2013.”
