John McNeil Studio (JMS) has expanded its leadership team with the addition of Executive Director, Social, Snow Burns and Executive Producer, Lauren Holmes. Burns is a former member of JMS, who returns after a career spent navigating between the worlds of tech and marketing. Holmes has spent her career in the world of film and animation production.
“Having spent time working across the industry, I can say that the chemistry with the team at JMS is really special,” says Burns. “They are smart, funny, critical thinkers and extremely positive and supportive. We have remained close over the years and we work so well together. It has been a pleasure to watch JMS evolve since I’ve been gone and a privilege to rejoin and keep building.”
“When I heard the vision JMS has for the future of The Annex, it felt like the perfect compliment to the skills I have acquired over my career,” says Holmes. “The diversity in the work that they do, and the creative ways that they approach production and problem solving is very exciting. Working with such talented people with a variety of skill sets just felt like the right opportunity at just the right time.”
“These are both creative and strategic leaders at the top of their game,” explains studio Founder/CEO, John McNeil. “With Snow, we’re building world-class social capabilities and extending our strategic consulting efforts to better position JMS for future opportunities in an ever-changing landscape. Lauren will help drive production efficiencies for all JMS clients, and with her leadership, The Annex will reach new heights as a stand alone production entity. It’s an exciting time for JMS and I can’t wait to see where their talent takes us.”
Congrats on the two hires.
