LONDON, UK (BRIAN)—Factory Media and Dig BMX Magazine have added Scott Towne as U.S. advertising manager to the Dig staff. Towne will be responsible for U.S. ad sales for Dig BMX magazine and DIGBMX.com.
"We're very proud to have someone of Scott's pedigree involved. He is a more than welcome addition to the Dig staff," said Dig editor-in-chief and founder Will Smyth.
