Cleveland, Ohio, July 31, 2017 – Futuri Media, a global leader and innovator in media technology, today announced three key additions to its team. All are based in the company’s new Cleveland-area headquarters, which is more than double the previous HQ’s size to accommodate Futuri’s rapid growth.

Chris Huneke has been named Partner Integration Specialist. Radio veteran Huneke spent the last 19 years in programming and on-air positions at Cumulus Media, most recently as Program Director of NASH FM 94.1 / WNNF-FM Cincinnati, before joining the Futuri team. An innovative programmer with a long-held passion for using technology to help improve his radio stations, Huneke will be a partner to programmers who use Futuri’s audience engagement products, helping them develop new ways to drive ratings and revenue.

Alison Stubbendieck has been named National Account Manager. Stubbendieck brings more than 20 years of sales and management experience in the media and advertising industries to Futuri. Having most recently spent 11 years with digital marketers NeoFill, where she led business development, Stubbendieck has also held training, sales, and media buying/planning positions at The Center for Sales Strategy, The Gazette, and several advertising agencies. Stubbendieck will focus on helping Futuri’s partners maximize its TopLine service, which empowers sales teams with custom qualitative and quantitative research to drive revenue.

James Hunziker has been named National Account Manager. With a background in digital and social media strategy and telecommunication sales, Hunziker, a veteran of the U.S. Marine Corps, was at YP.com and CBS Radio Cleveland before joining Futuri. Hunziker will focus on bringing #engage, the Futuri platform that turns music stations into dynamic interactive experiences, to a wider group of partners worldwide.

“Chris, Alison, and James each embody Futuri’s core values: trust, proactivity, speed, and passion,” said Futuri Media CEO Daniel Anstandig. “As a high-growth company that has more than tripled our company’s size in two years, Futuri is thrilled to add their broadcast and digital experience to our team, and better serve our partners.”
