Meriel has long believed in the power of a stellar name, ever since she lived on a small Orkney Island with her family chickens Bette Davis, Lauren Bacall and Katherine Hepburn, plus horse Alvin Stardust.
Having headed up LS Productions’ Creative Development for the last seven years – where UK productions included Marcus Rashford x Burberry, Penelope Cruz x Lancôme and David Beckham x Haig Club – Meriel will now lead the charge on finessing Talent Republic’s unique offering and growing their client pool globally.
“I’m thrilled to have joined Anne and Charlie at Talent Republic” she says. “I’ve long admired the meeting-of-worlds Talent Republic have pulled off for brands and agencies, from Ryan Reynolds x BT, Mariah Carey x Walkers, the iconic British ensemble cast x British Airways to Snoop Dogg x Just Eat.”
“I’ve known Meriel for over five years and was always impressed by her irrepressible energy and the passion and commitment she bought to her role at LS.” Anne Batz, Founder, remarks. “It is no surprise LS grew and expanded so substantially during the time she spearheaded their new business drive. I’m naturally excited by the potential for growth with Meriel as such an integral part of my team.”
Charlie Powell has also recently been promoted from business affairs lead to managing partner.
