Also in London, Lola Cookman, Work’s newest APA graduate, has moved up to associate producer and is not only looking after the office but starting to produce jobs.
Work founder, Jane Dilworth explains why she made these key promotions. “I am immensely proud of the whole Work family. Both Erica and Marlo have been incredible at keeping us all working smoothly on some really brilliant projects during such challenging times, so this progression for them feels a very natural step as they move into more of a managing role within the company. It really is truly wonderful how they both work with each other and myself, there is honesty, trust and faith. A teamwork that is always great to be a part of and inspired by.”
“To have two such strong EPs in Alejandra and Remy is the perfect combination for the teams at both of the US offices. I’m thrilled to have Audrey on the New Wave roster and to see what this brings and Annie is a brilliant addition to NYC.”
On Ellie and the London team, Jane comments: “the time is right for Ellie to take the London helm. "From being the best assistant and then producer, Ellie is trusted and adored by us and clients alike so is absolutely the perfect person for the job in London. Lola’s professional growth over the past year has been great to watch and see a very bright career ahead of her.”view more - Hires, Wins & BusinessWORK UK, Wed, 30 Mar 2022 14:06:54 GMT
