From publication: Imaginary Forces, the multi-award winning creative studio, strengthens his team with the appointment of Brittney Walker as head of business development.
Brittney, a very experienced new business strategist with an excellent track record in sales, comes from VFX and Creative Studio, Framestore's west coast base. As an all-rounder, she focused on sales for live action, emerging technology, VFX, design and rides. During her tenure, she helped build a customer base that included Google, Facebook, Apple, HP, Activision and Intel, among others. Brittney will report directly to Tiffani Manabat, General Manager of IF.
Tiffani Manabat, General Manager: “When I come on board in January, I am still learning the extraordinary 24-year history of IF and learned so much when I found my way to Brittney. We knew exactly who we were looking for, so it wasn't about filling a spot. From our first conversation, I was overwhelmed by their thoughtful approach, their balanced attitude and their enthusiasm for the work. "
Brittney said: “I am very happy to join the Imaginary Forces team. It has always been known that they do extraordinary work with immense talent that is really firmly anchored in the cultural encyclopedia. It is so exciting for me to work with the team and share the same legacy. At this moment, the change is even more moving when you join a team led by Tiffani, a colorful woman with a long history and an excellent reputation in our industry. My hopes for the future of IF are that we continue to build a company that reflects the world around us, and that their commitment to diverse talent and the promotion of creativity is a story that I enjoy participating in. "
Brittney's hiring is the last in a series of strategic hires over the past 6 months. Tiffani Manabat himself was only hired 6 months ago.
