New director of business development formerly worked with Motion Theory & Mirada Studios.
Santa Monica, CA -- As it unifies all of its divisions and new ventures under a single identity, production and design studio Big Block has announced the creation of a business development initiative which will span the company’s bicoastal locations.
In a newly created role, Caroline Gomez, Director of Business Development, will operate from Big Block’s Santa Monica studio and will also work closely with executive producer Corwin Carroll at Big Block’s New York location.
Big Block has expanded and diversified exponentially since its inception in 2011 and now creates, produces and distributes media and content for commercials, interactive, television, feature films and Broadway theater, with several digital entertainment ventures in development. Big Block’s designers, live action directors and artists have been recognized with an AICP Next Award, a One Show Bronze Pencil Award, a PromaxBDA Award, a Bessie Best of Show Award and an Emmy Award nomination.
“This is a transformational time for Big Block,” said Big Block managing director Kenny Solomon in making the announcement. “Caroline really understands our space and how we are positioned for the future. Her awareness of the industry and ability to build relationships will enable her to pursue opportunities and communicate the value of all that Big Block has to offer clients and brands.”
Primary goals for Gomez, who is known for her extensive industry networks and track record, will be to identify new business opportunities and synergies to maximize Big Block’s resources and drive sales. She will also manage relationships with agencies, creatives and brands and promote Big Block through social media and at events, award shows and conferences.
Gomez comes to Big Block from an impressive fourteen-year tenure as Director of Marketing at Motion Theory. One of the first hires at Motion Theory, Gomez worked directly with the founders to grow the company from a design studio into a content-driven production powerhouse. She also helped to launch Motion Theory’s sister company, Mirada.
Gomez has forged long-standing relationships with a diverse array of clients, which include high-profile advertising agencies, top music labels and internationally renowned brands such as Audi, AT&T, Disney, Nike, Under Armour, Lexus, IBM, Maytag and Discovery Networks.
During her tenure, Motion Theory and Mirada’s work were honored with many accolades, including Cannes Lions, CLIO Awards, AICP Next Awards, Art Directors Club Awards, Grammy Awards, VMA Awards, D&AD Pencils and an Emmy Award.
“This is such an exciting time for me to join Big Block,” Gomez said of her new role. “Their growth potential is tremendous. I look forward to working with everyone at the studio to help forge new partnerships and target new opportunities.”
