Entertainment marketing agency Create Advertising Group has promoted two long-standing executives.
Carrie Gormley has been promoted to president of theatrical advertising and Jonathan Gitlin to president of television and gaming.
Both Gitlin and Gormley will report to founder David Stern.
“As Create Advertising continues to grow and expand, I couldn’t be more proud to have two of the most creative and innovative leaders as partners helping guide the future of our firm,” said Stern.
“Jonathan and Carrie represent the best of Create. They are both longtime members of our team and part of our DNA is recognising and rewarding home grown talent.
“Carrie’s endless creative abilities and skill, business savvy, and energy will keep us competitive in the movie marketing business of the future. She is a perfectionist who understands that talent and great editing is the life blood of our business and she knows how to work with clients and her team to get the best out of the material.”
“Jonathan began as an intern 10 years ago and he has proven himself to be one of the true leaders of our company. He has extended our brand into gaming, television, and new media ventures. The company’s ability to enter these new arenas and successfully incorporate this work into our creative flow has been critical to our on going expansion and success.”
Create Advertising is enjoying a strong 2014, having recently been nominated for four upcoming key art awards for its theatrical trailer for Lucy as well as its television work for Fargo and Orange Is The New Black.
The company’s previous honours include its 2013 Key Art Awards for Stoker and Orange Is The New Black and a 2012 Golden Trailer Award for Coriolanus.
The company has been nominated for several Screen International Marketing/Distribution Awards, including a nomination for UK Creative Agency of the Year in 2012.
