BOND has expanded its teams with an increased focus on gaming, streaming, and insight and audience sentiment, all significant areas of growth for the company.
Among those promoted recently include Darnell Brisco , EVP and Head of Growth, a role in which Brisco will identify new ways to build on the best of BOND, while creating new opportunities that are unique to BOND's fully-integrated operations; Ben Andron , EVP and Head of A/V, for which he will continue to helm BOND's trailer division; Kathleen Philips , Patricio Hoter , Ali Comperchio , Brent Rockswold and Chris LaMons , all elevated to Creative Directors of A/V; and Peter Soldinger , who has been tapped as VP and Head of Creative Strategy.
"This is such a special moment for all of us here at BOND, thriving on so many levels in the wake of such a uniquely challenging past two years. We've purposefully been an extremely flat organization this first decade and it speaks volumes about the special people that make up this community that the time has come to stretch and grow, together." said Seth Phillips Althoff , Co-Founder and CEO of BOND. "We pride ourselves on being a place that empowers artists and nurtures creativity, and we are so grateful that our amazing team has continuously delivered exceptional work for our clients.
