B-Reel is excited to announce several new hires in the Europe and the US. These folks bring a metric ton of experience to the table and we are glad to have them.
Melina Polly - Managing Director, Los Angeles
Melina brings a great deal of knowledge to her new position in LA. She started small at a boutique design firm and grew to a position managing over 100 people at Media Arts Lab. Having grown up in East Berlin, Melina’s German ties might also come in handy in growing our Berlin office.
Johann Laeschke - Managing Director, Berlin
Johann comes to us from AKQA and brings with him more than 15 years of digital under his belt. Having launched his own startup in 2008, he maintains a deep understanding of what it takes to grow a company. Johann speaks four languages, which is majorly helpful when working with offices in five different countries.
Teddy Phuong - Strategist, New York City
Teddy comes to us from Droga5 after doing a stint with our friends at Facebook and MAL (where he of course ran into Melina Polly). As the New York office is expanding not only its talent base but its spectrum of projects Teddy could not have come at a more perfect time. His documented skills in creating a delicious grilled cheese might also help the NYC grow.
Keith White - Global Talent Director, Los Angeles
Keith comes to us after a stretch as the talent director at Media Arts Lab. Prior to harvesting the very best talent for MAL, Keith worked as a recruiter for Wieden & Kennedy in Amsterdam. Previous colleagues call Keith, "a laughing, smiling, bouncing, energy giver." We are very excited to have that energy here at B-Reel.
