Norris, who joined Dish Media Sales in 2008 to help establish the unit’s flagship office in New York City, most recently led national ad sales for Dish Media Sales.

“Brian has been a driving force behind Dish Media Sales since its inception, shaping a culture of thought leadership and professionalism within the organization,” Schlichting said, in a statement. “As we push the envelope on smarter TV advertising, Brian’s leadership will continue the momentum and growth of the business.”

“We’re part of changing the definition of TV and with it, the definition of TV advertising,” added Norris. “I’m proud to lead a team of sales innovators that has paved the way in unchartered territory from addressable advertising and programmatic TV to new opportunities offered by Sling TV.”

Adam Gaynor, the former VP of Dish Media Sales, recently joined AMC Networks as VP of advertising and data solution sales.
