Mia Powell is joining the Ridley Scott Creative Groups’ RSA Films as EU/UK New Business Director.
Working alongside current global new business director, Damiano Vukotic, Mia will be responsible for developing the RSA Films roster, ensuring the company continue to offer a breadth of creative expertise suitable for any project.
Before joining RSA, Mia spent the last four years as head of new business at Prettybird, signing and developing exciting new talent, and creating category defining work for brands such as H&M, Nike, adidas, Pride in London, The Glenlivet, and Vogue. Mia initially began her career as a junior brand consultant for Ruby Pseudo before moving into the commercial arena through an access scheme at advertising agency iris Worldwide where she worked as an account executive. Her next move was to MullenLowe London as the marketing and new business executive where she worked on award-winning projects for a number of high-profile clients including Western Union and Netflix.
“I’m truly excited to join the global team as new business director for EU/UK. Being a part of one of the most prolific commercial production companies in the world is a dream come true,” said Mia. “I’m inspired by the roster of directors and can’t wait to develop, nurture, and elevate an already killer pool of talent across the group; with a strong commitment to bringing more marginalised and diverse voices into the fold in front of and behind the camera. We have big plans for the Ridley Scott Creative Group and it’s amazing to be a part of the ever-evolving legacy.”
A cheerleader for underrepresented voices, Mia is also an enthusiastic mentor, working with initiatives like D&AD, Brixton Finishing School, Iconic Steps, Bloom Female Network, and ELAM to help nurture a more inclusive industry. Beyond this Mia has curated, moderated, and spoke on panel discussions to help bring focus to marginalised voices at many events worldwide including Advertising Week Europe, Advertising Week New York, The Shiny Awards, and LBB. Mia has also sat on Advertising Week Europe’s Under 30 Board and featured on the cover of Pitch Magazine’s annual Superwomen issue.
“We couldn’t be happier that Mia is joining us to help shape the future of the Ridley Scott Creative Group of companies, building on our diverse offering in creative and production. It is rare to find people with such passion, intelligence, and enthusiasm.” RSA Global MD Kai Hsiung.view more - Hires, Wins & BusinessRSA Films, Wed, 14 Jul 2021 09:31:00 GMT
