Venables Bell & Partners’ in-house production unit, Lumberyard Productions, has expanded its leadership team. Raquel Bedard, whose role has recently evolved to Director of Operations, is being joined by Creative Lead and Director Tyler Hampton, Production Lead Sasha White, and Client Services Lead Kristin Obi.
“It’s an exciting time for Lumberyard. As the market and media landscape continue to evolve, our team can take on new opportunities with clients outside of our agency relationships,” said VB&P Partner and COO Kate Jeffers. “Our new team leaders will help us step up our game, work smarter and more efficiently, and better serve the needs of new clients who may not work with agencies, but have multiple content and production needs. We know these businesses can benefit from our passion and expertise, and it’s the perfect time to bring on more creative firepower in this new chapter. We know this outstanding team is up for the task.”
“The time is right for a production company with a strong creative perspective,” says Bedard. Our model is particularly relevant because of the current crisis. Brands still need content, but large-scale productions have been curtailed. We can get creative with how we produce new work without shooting out in the world. We are truly grateful to be open for business – we realize many aren’t so lucky. But as long as clients need work done, we want to be there to help, and we’re uniquely positioned to handle any type of production.”
