Douglas E. Ferber
Doug has been involved in the Media and Communications industries for over 30 years. He began his career as an entry level sales trainee for Bonneville International Corporation in 1984 at KIRO-AM/TV in Seattle Washington. He completed his MBA from Southern Methodist University in 1989 and went on to work as an Account Executive for Capital Cities/ABC Radio in Dallas, Texas.
In 1994 Doug was recruited by Interep National Radio Sales to open and manage the Southwest Regional Office in Dallas for a dedicated representation company for Infinity Radio. As Infinity grew and eventually merged with CBS/Westinghouse, so grew the needs for national representation. Doug was promoted and brought to New York to become Vice President and General Manager where he was responsible for the national revenue budget for the former Westinghouse group acquired by CBS. These stations included huge heritage stations such as WINS-AM, KDKA-AM, KYW-AM, and WBZ-AM.
Since 1998 Doug has been brokering media properties and has closed more than 50 deals valued at over $400,000,000. DEFcom Advisors provides other financial and operations consulting services to owners, investors, lenders, and attorneys. Doug has been invited to speak on various panels at industry trade functions on the subjects of company and industry values, the state of the capital markets, and the availability and cost of capital.
