Posted on 5/12/2016 by Jim Pickerell | Printable Version | Comments (0)

Aurora Photos has announced that Tim Davis has joined the growing Aurora sales team as an Account Executive. Tim had spent the last 15 years with Corbis, most recently as a Sales Associate and Account Executive.

Tim will be based in New York City doing a combination of inside and outside sales and new business development. “Tim brings a wealth of stock photography sales and management experience to Aurora’s growing team,” says Aurora’s Director Karl Schatz. “We are thrilled to have him on board.”

Seth Greenberg has joined Zuma Press to head up its Business Development Department. Seth has 25 years of experience pitching, assigning and editing award-winning photographic work and coordinating coverage of complex international events. He began his photography career as Research Director for Archive Photos in New York and moved to Corbis where he was the lead sports editor on the Bettmann/UPI digital preservation project and a news editor on the Corbis Sygma photo desk. He has organized coverage for and edited events ranging from eight Olympic Games, and four FIFA World Cups, to Formula 1 races and tennis' Grand Slams.

Julia Leitheusser has moved to Getty Images as a production services specialist.

Tobias Prasse is Co-Owner and Director USA of Neoseen, a company that tells visual brand stories in photography motion and digital media.

Gavin Booth has joined Cars Co a newly launched end to end mobility service supported and owned by the Dubai based Linktia investment group. In 2013 Booth also co-founded and is still involved with HEX a commercial production company delivering unconventional content to an often conventional commercial media. In addition, since 2010 he has been a consultant with Hell Gate Media, a leading independent and youth culture driven editorial content platform.

As far as we can determine Carl Gronquist, Qnir Ebff, Grant Potter and Kelly Hesburn are still looking for new opportunities.
