Backing from the organisation, founded and run by Laurene Powell Jobs, will facilitate growth across all Anonymous Content’s related businesses, including film, television, commercial and digital production, and talent management.

It is understood there will be particular focus on expanding the firm’s efforts in producing socially relevant content aimed at inspiring change, an agenda central to the Emerson Collective mission.

Emerson Collective gains a seat on the Anonymous Content board. Golin will continue to direct operations at Anonymous alongside partners Michael Sugar, Doug Wald, Eric Stern and Diane Janicki.
