New York, NY -- It’s been a busy summer at New York-based design and animation studio Ataboy. For starters, Diana Mandelare has just come aboard as Executive Producer and Head of Sales.

Diana had most recently been at Shilo, where she held the tile of Head of Sales.

“I’m thrilled to welcome Diana to Ataboy. I’ve known her for several years and her history in both production and sales has given her a great perspective as well as key relationships,” said Parikh. “We’re all really excited for the new energy, passion, experience, and fresh insight that she’ll bring here.” When speaking about her move to the studio Mandelare noted, “Ataboy is a young company but poised for a great period of growth.
