Alamy kick starts next phase in USA sales strategy with recruitment of new VP of Sales for North America.
Pioneering stock photography agency, Alamy, has recruited Adam Goldberg as vice president of sales for North America. Adam is leaving the post of director of corporate development at Corbis to join the company at the start of January.
Adam Goldberg commented: “Alamy has proven itself a tremendous resource for advertising, marketing and publishing professionals the world over. I'm excited to join the Alamy team and look forward to bringing its combination of amazing photography and client-focused services to the broader North American market.”
Rachel Wakefield, Alamy’s head of sales said “Adam has a high calibre 20 year career in the stock photo industry and brings a wealth of experience which will be vital to our ambitious sales plans for the USA.”
Alamy first opened its Brooklyn office in 2009 and is achieving 30% annual growth in the US market.
Alamy is the world’s largest online stock photo site. It connects thousands of designers, marketing departments, news desks, and publishers with some of the best professional and amateur photographers around.
Alamy does not make editorial judgements on pictures, nothing is rejected providing the quality is acceptable – it lets the customer choose the pictures they want.
Alamy’s revolutionary approach to the stock photography business means 60 percent of each sale is paid to the content owner – the lion’s share of the revenue earned.
