Sydney, Australia – Advertising agency The Works has named senior producer Katie Harper as the agency’s new head of production, where she brings in more than 20 years of production experience, including 16 years at BMF.
She was most recently from Rumble Studios and held similar positions at agencies including M&C Saatchi and Saatchi & Saatchi.
Harper replaces Rachel Solomon, head of production who is returning to the UK, and Honae MacNeill, the interim head of production.
Through her new role, she will be leading the agency’s in-house production team of directors and editors, overseeing work for several key clients including Goodman Fielder, Aware Super, Masterpet, H&R Block and Subaru.
“I’m very happy to be joining an agency that is so well respected and has a great reputation for their culture and family focus. The Works has so much momentum right now, and is a purposeful brand on a mission to make an impact. I’m certainly looking forward to getting stuck in,” Harper said, regarding her appointment.
Meanwhile, Jasmine Lansdell, general manager for people and operations at The Works, commented, “We’re thrilled to bring Katie on board at such an exciting and pivotal time for the agency. As we have recently embarked on a new chapter under our new brand platform ‘Be Significant’. Katie brings with her great leadership and experience, and will play a key role for us to continue producing great work and grow our production team and capabilities.”
The Works had recently launched their new brand platform ‘Be Significant’ in a bid to create a conversation around the ‘meaninglessness’ that exists in the creative industry. In addition, The Works had also recently won the accounts of wellness company WW and electronics brand LG.
