About geoameer

Production & Broadcasting - ✔️ TV Rights Negotiations - ✔️ Content Distribution - ✔️ Organized Planner - ✔️ Budget Management - ✔️ Servant Leader/Management - ✔️ I have a diverse skill set that will be a valuable addition to any media team. My broadcast/ content creation & distribution/ client services/ account management background provided a global perspective - I handled a very diverse group of International broadcast partners who had culturally different business practices/ideals. Working with clients, vendors, sponsors and freelancers all around the globe (many of whom I consider friends) enabled me to develop a skill set to handle varying personalities and solve problems no matter the country or time zone.   A few highlights:
  • Negotiated TV rights deals with several international partners
  • Produced & edited numerous hours of content spanning 25+ years
  • Created & oversaw PGA TOUR Profile series
  • Coordinated the distribution of 1000’s of hours of LIVE content annually
  • Assisted Discovery Network/GOLFTV team with the launch of their OTT platform (providing content & distribution guidance)
I will be happy to discuss in more detail how my background will make me a strong, reliable contributor to the growth and success of a media organization.  I look forward to speaking with you.   Very Best Regards,     George Ameer   904-318-7100 georgeameer16@gmail.com LinkedIn: www.linkedin.com/in/georgeameer730
