About Steven Sos
Regional Sales Director, Shazam Entertainment 

Steven joined Shazam in January 2013 as Regional Sales Director for the APAC region, including Australia and New Zealand, to spearhead the growth of revenue from advertising. Drawing on 19 years of experience in media sales across mobile, television, online, magazines and newspapers, Sos is responsible for the growth and expansion of the Shazam for TV service, leveraging mobile 
technology to extend engagement from more traditional mediums. 

Prior to joining Shazam, Steven was with Mobile Embrace, one of Australia’s leading integrated 
mobile and digital communications companies as their Head of Sales. There, he helped build the Mobile Embrace brand from inception and drove sales revenue and solutions across three core competencies, including mobile advertising.

He also spent 12 years with Multi Channel Network, where he was responsible for maximising advertising interests across 50 national STV channels as well as hundreds of channel and independent websites. During his tenure he was an early advocate and sales pioneer of their then fledgling digital 
interactive services offering. 

Steven began his career in media sales working at News Corporation on The Australian Newspaper before moving to Fairfax Media to work on their stable of business magazines.
