Meet Founder Jim Doyle

“For nearly 50 years, Jim Doyle was an essential fixture in the media business. In fact, he says he considers himself ‘the luckiest man on the planet,’ for the opportunity to combine two of his greatest passions—media and sales—into such a successful career.  During his career, Jim led sales teams, developed businesses, and wrote an admired series of books, all while helping thousands of local companies reach their goals. With the help of a dedicated staff of professionals, Jim led JDA.media to become recognized as the most respected training and revenue firm in the television and digital media business.  When I took the reins from him in January 2020, I knew it was a special company, in no small part due to his immense legacy for innovation and dedication to excellence, which continues to this day.”

patrick norrisPatrick Norris is JDA.media’s SVP Revenue Drives.

Having previously been on “the other side of the table” as an auto group managing partner, Pat experienced the power of the JDA.media philosophy of concentration and marketing focus, and the positive impact it had on his business – growing it by over 25% and reaping millions more in annual revenue.

He also understands the hard decisions a business owner makes in advertising spending and the need to see quantifiable results on investments. Nowadays, uses his hands-on experience with JDA.media strategies to help local businesses substantially grow their sales. Pat says it best: “I believed so much in the JDA.media marketing philosophy and saw the success it brought my businesses, that I joined the company.”

As the Managing Partner of the Norris Auto Group, Pat ran a collection of five retail, multi-brand automobile dealerships and a pair of motorsports stores. His 16-year success was directly attributed to his ability to develop advertising strategies that cut through the “noise” and achieved results.

After his career in the retail automobile business, Pat joined the Market Access Group, a private equity firm, as the VP of Marketing and Sales. He worked alongside entrepreneurial business owners developing marketing plans, and installing successful sales practices for auto dealers, retailers, and a variety of small businesses.

Pat is an alumnus of Michigan State University where he earned a degree in marketing and business development. He is also a graduate of the General Motors School of Retail Management. Pat is the proud recipient of the 2004 Time Magazine Quality Dealer Award as well as numerous other civic recognitions for his community involvement and business leadership.

He lives in Sarasota and enjoys fishing, golf, motorcycle touring, skiing, boating, and spending quality time with his two daughters (one is a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine and the other is an MBA who works as a licensed dietician and nutritionist).

 

thomas ray

Tom Ray is Executive Vice President, Training and Development, at JDA.media.

A perennial favorite speaker at the National Association of Broadcasters conferences and at various programs and seminars, he is often introduced as “the premier television sales trainer in the country.”

NAB’s Madelyn Bonnot Griffin says, “Tom’s presentations always combine practical best practices balanced by a creative strategy that improves traditional thinking.”

Tom brings more than 30-years of local media experience to your team. From radio, broadcast, and cable television, to five years in Internet marketing and development, Tom’s diverse background gives him a unique perspective on driving results for local advertisers.

For more than a decade, Tom has traveled the country 25-plus weeks a year, helping sales teams and advertisers discover what works (and what does not) in local advertising.

His popular book, Branding is OUT, Results are IN! Lessons for the LOCAL Advertiser is a well-respected hit with sales and marketing professionals achieving Amazon Bestseller status.  He released a new book earlier this year, 2020, to help media professionals during the pandemic, Recessions Lessons: Selling Through Adversity. It is also available on Amazon.

He is a member of the National Speakers Association and has earned the Certified Speaking Professional (CSP) designation.

Whether it is at NAB conferences, a State Broadcasters Association event, or in front of a group of local advertisers, Tom delivers thought-provoking content wrapped in an entertaining, high-energy persona.

Tom lives with his wife, and two sons in Bradenton, FL, where he enjoys a variety of outdoor activities.

 

angela betasso

Angela Betasso is President and CEO of JDA.media, a nationally recognized sales training firm dedicated to helping television sales organizations consistently grow their digital and television revenue.

Prior to joining JDA, Angela served as Chief Revenue Officer of Tribune Media, driving ad-supported revenues of over $1.4 billion.

She has a proven track record of growing and creating incremental revenue streams and a clear vision of how to create win-wins in the ever-changing local media landscape.

Angela joined Tribune as Senior Vice President of Sales, having also held the position of Vice President of Sales at both Gannett and Belo Corp. She also held several executive management positions at WFAA (the ABC affiliate in Dallas, TX).

As a former member of the TVB Executive Board, Angela has received numerous media honors, including the 2012 American Women in Media’s Silver Award of Excellence and Television Week’s 2008 TV Manager of the Year Award, Southwestern Region.

She is passionate about JDA.media’s sales and training philosophy, having been a JDA client for more than a decade.

“I have seen firsthand the impact JDA.media has on station revenue and client results,” she says. “From their performance-focused Sales Manager’s Boot Camps, to ‘best in class’ tailored OnDemand and in-market sales training, and innovative local advertiser solutions—the opportunity to lead such strong team and to work with media industry-leading JDA.media clients is exhilarating.”

jim doyleThe founder of JDA.media, Jim Doyle has spent nearly 50 years in the radio and TV business. As Jim is fond of saying, “In that time I’ve seen a lot of good, a little bad and only one serious ugly (which turned out to be a huge gift)”.

Jim’s roots are in Maine, where he began his career in 1972 (and to this day he remains an avid Boston Red Sox baseball fan). He got his professional start as an eager young car salesman who fell into television as an Account Executive with “no list and no skills,” as he’s framed it. From owning an advertising agency to co-owning multiple television stations and a New York radio station to starting his own successful company, Jim’s path has been exciting and rewarding.

His legacy company started in 1991 when Jim set out on his own as a sales trainer. As his selling philosophies gained traction within the industry, he expanded, changed the company’s name from Top Performance Selling to Jim Doyle & Associates. “It sounded like there were more of us than there truly was at the time,” he laughs.

Firmly established as a highly sought after consultant and sales trainer, Jim produced and conducted national conferences on selling to healthcare providers, automotive dealers, and other key advertising verticals. These were must-attend events for broadcasters around the country. Over the years Jim also wrote two books and published the successful newsletter, “Auto Revenue Insights,” which became the media industry’s top source for information about the car business.

As a member of the National Speakers Association, he has achieved the prestigious Certified Speaking Professional (CSP) designation.  His sense of humor coupled with real-world experience made Jim one of the most requested speakers in the history of the National Association of Broadcasters conferences.

Jim’s books are required reading among savvy media pros including Don’t Just Make a Sale… Make a Difference, and Prime Time: Transforming Your TV Sales Staff Into A Sales FORCE.

Today, while he continues to serve as a JDA.media board member Jim has left the day-to-day involvement of the company.  His new book, Selling with a Servants Heart, will be released in early summer 2021, and Jim plans on continuing to speak and conduct workshops to support the book’s message. He is also spending more time serving others including a commitment to helping the homeless community in Sarasota where he lives with his wife Paula.
