Commercial/interactive powerhouse Acne has enlisted Simpatico founder Jolie Miller as the company’s new East Coast sales rep. Along with Simpatico agents Nata Andresen and Liz O’Connor, Jolie Miller will oversee promotion and sales for Acne’s celebrated directorial roster and its digital division for the East Coast territory.
Jolie Miller has long acted as a creative conduit uniting artists and innovative thinkers within the advertising industry. She launched Simpatico in New York nearly eight years ago and has since built the firm’s roster to include Alldayeveryday, Cut + Run, Durable Goods, Elias, Eskimo, Framestore, Little Minx and m ss ng p eces. Jolie now adds Scandinavian-born production mega-collective Acne to the list, fresh off being named one of Ad Age’s 2015 Production Company Standouts.
Acne USA CEO/Executive Producer Line Postmyr remarks on the newfound partnership, “We’re extremely excited to embark on this venture with Jolie, Nata and Liz. On top of being well-connected on the commercial front, they are also extremely knowledgeable and well-versed about emerging forms of media. They will be a tremendous resource on the East Coast as we re-launch Acne’s digital/interactive division.”
Fellow US EP Rania Hattar echoes the sentiment, saying, “I have worked with Simpatico in the past and am thrilled to reunite with them now at Acne. The timing could not be more perfect.”
“All of us at Simpatico look forward to supporting Acne’s momentum as the brand continues to push forward creatively,” comments Jolie Miller. “Along with adding fresh directing talents like Ehsan B and Kim Jacobs, Acne has also been strategically building its digital department with a roster of collaborators, all with different specialties. The combination of growth, potential and sheer talent that exists under the Acne banner is truly inspiring.”
Acne continues to be repped by Kevin Batten of Pop-Arts for the West Coast and David Wagner for the Midwest area.
