Press release from Speedshape:
Detroit, MI -- Nicole Stone has been appointed account executive for Speedshape. Stone, formerly a producer at the hybrid CGI, interactive, design, and 3D company, brings an in-depth knowledge and hands-on experience in the postproduction arena to her new role. Her focus will be on introducing Midwest agencies and brands to the award-winning company’s diverse services, multi-disciplined team of talent and its seamless approach to advertising, broadcast, film and interactive media content.
“Speedshape is always looking for new ways to take our client services to the next level and provide the most comprehensive and efficient experience possible,” says director of business development Chad Cooper, head of Speedshape’s team of national representatives.
“As the face of Speedshape in the Midwest, Nicole will not only be introducing a new crop of agencies and brands to our company,” he adds. “Her four-years of experience producing complex multi-platform projects -- through every phase of the creative process -- has enabled her to redefine the traditional role of an account executive from that of a sales rep with a general knowledge of the business, to a postproduction savvy member of our creative team. And, from the initial response she’s getting, it's clear that clients looking for innovative and seamless creative solutions appreciate the value of having a seasoned producer as their point person -- from the first phone call.”
Detroit native Nicole Stone, a graduate of Columbia College, joined Speedshape in 2008. Since coming on board, she has produced scores of broadcast, digital, CGI and social media campaigns for the company’s LA, Detroit and London divisions, including projects for brands such as GE, Ford, and Jack Daniels.
“Speedshape provides a unique, full-service collaborative environment, driven by innovative talent and a commitment to raising the creative bar of every job that comes through our doors,” says Stone. “After having worked shoulder-to-shoulder with our creative teams, I’m really enjoying the opportunity to use the skill sets I acquired as a producer to build new relationships and providing the level of services and attention to detail that each client deserves.”
