Babby transitioned to sale in 2004 as an Account Manager for technology advertising. Over the next several years, his career followed an extraordinary trajectory when he became the Manager of Entertainment Advertising, and later, as Director of Major Accounts Unit (with $320 million in annual revenues) to VP of Advertising for Washington Post Media, and finally, his most recent role as Chief Revenue Officer of Washington Post Media and General Manager of Washington Post Digital.
