In partnership with LBB, we’re presenting “Partners in Production” with HoPs from the US, the UK and Europe.

Posted June 22, 2020

This week, Simian is going global with our series of Heads of Production roundtables.

On Wednesday we’ll be conducting a co-sponsored HoP roundtable panel with agency production heads from major shops located in the US, the UK and Europe, held in conjunction with our friends at Little Black Book. The panel will be recorded and presented on the LBB web site later this week.

Titled “Partners in Production,” the lineup of panelists includes Aaron Kovan of Vayner Media, Sergio Lopez of McCann/Craft, Steffen Gentis of BBDO/Germany, John Doris of TBWA\Chiat\Day in New York, Isadora Chesler of RPA, Kerry Hill of FCB and Tanya LeSieur of MUH-TAY-ZIK / HOF-FER VCCP. It will be moderated by Matt Cooper, Founder of LBB.

This represents the first panel Simian has hosted that will bring together production leaders from agencies outside the US. It’s the logical next step for our series of HoP roundtables, which now numbers 10 meetings held with HoPs from around the country.

We see these events as an opportunity for agency production execs to share insights and experiences about working under the unique circumstances the pandemic has imposed on the industry. More important, “Partners in Production” will examine what agencies are looking for right now from their independent production and post companies. It’s a critical time for the future of these independents, as they’re being forced to find new ways of working to meet client and agency demands.

Simian will be posting news about the panel once it’s scheduled to run on LBB, and we’ll also be hosting it on a special microsite. It’s another example of how Simian does more than just help you share video and collaborate – we help you work smarter.




Working smarter and sharing knowledge is part of our mission. Seems it's AICP's, too.
