Even after a well-traveled career, it’s still possible to peg Jerry Satoren as a New Yorker. His voice, slightly gruff yet friendly, holds just enough lingering trace of accent to give him away. Not that he’s holding anything back. The native Long Islander spent his career crossing the country and climbing the consumer tech ladder, finally landing him in Dallas as Executive Director of the buying group NATM.
Unsurprisingly, reaching the status of Executive Director does not come easily - and it certainly does not come overnight. Before stepping into his current position, Satoren spent the better part of his career focused on the vendor and manufacturing sides of television, moving between six different states as his career moved forward. But Dallas has quickly become home to him, and it’s evident that his career was always headed for NATM, even before he knew it himself.
