Specialist international film, TV and Gaming PR agency Percy & Warren today announces the appointment of Phoebe Brown as its new marketing manager to further build its presence in the international film and TV market.
Having managed UK and US PR for Walter Presents, Channel 4’s foreign language service, as well as bespoke drama producers Eagle Eye Drama, Phoebe was responsible for all of the network’s PR activity and social media presence. Further to launching publicity campaigns on key titles for the channel, she executed large scale events with embassies, festivals, film and TV institutes and societies and forged major international brand partnerships on behalf of the channel.
Highlights include running premieres for major international titles such as Snow Angels and Hjerson at Walter Presents, handling high-profile interview features for execs and cast members such as James Prichard, the CEO of Agatha Christie, running key events with UCL on topics including Women in Nordic Noir, through to Q&A screenings with Game of Thrones star Carice Van Houten in conjunction with the Royal Television Society for hit drama, Red Light.
With an extensive knowledge of the international production and distribution landscape Phoebe will be responsible for managing Percy & Warren’s expansion into new territories and markets and will report into the company’s co-founders Holly Miller and Xander Ross, who will work closely with her on developing its upcoming plans and strategies for the international markets.
Xander Ross, co-founder and PR director at Percy & Warren said “We’ve worked with Phoebe on PR campaigns for successful European dramas and know from experience that she has both an incredibly in-depth knowledge of production companies around the world, and how to deliver first rate PR that delivers superb results. When the opportunity arose to bring her into Percy & Warren we jumped at the chance, she brings a wealth of experience and just as important to us, is an all-round lovely person too.”
Phoebe Brown, marketing manager at Percy & Warren adds: “After working with the Percy & Warren team across our Finnish titles during my time at Walter Presents, I was blown away by their expertise. I’ve always had it in my mind that I’d love to join such a trailblazing agency within the entertainment sphere. It has such an impressive track record across its trade and consumer credits, and I can’t wait to grow its international footprint and work with its diverse range of clients.
