13 Count ’em 13

Mistress is feeling pretty lucky. Pretty lucky indeed and it would seem the L.A. shop is doubling down on its recent win.

A week after Shopper rewards app Ibotta selected the independent shop as Agency of Record, Mistress announced to AgencySpy that they have brought on thirteen staffers, several creatives, primarily made up of mostly project managers and creatives from area agencies like Innocean, 180LA and David&Goliath.

“Through the re-bundling of our offerings we now can not just deliver best-in-class creative and integrated media, rigorous strategic planning and analytics—all spanning both traditional and social media—but we deliver a real focus on results,” said Mistress creative partner Damien Eley in AgencySpy. “Finding the perfect people for this accelerating evolution has been tough, but this influx of awesome talent will help Mistress continue meeting our clients’ unmet needs.”

The lucky newbies are:

Hanna Koh: Copywriter
Austin Ho: Art Director
Jordan Rich: Art Director
Adam Valley: Senior Creative
Nate Stroot: Senior Creative
Madeleine Gould: Designer
Elvis Sierra: Junior Creative
Leslie Lechner: Junior Creative
Kristi Hughes: Junior Creative
Kiley DeNembo: Creative Resources Coordinator
Bruno Guerra: Social Brand Manager
Drew Jayhan: Senior Project Manager
Tara Allen: Senior Project Manager

In the 10-plus months since the agency merged with fellow indie Supermoon, they’ve also been organizing more media buys. And we all know that’s where the money is now, don’t we?

The hires follows Mistress welcoming three hires in newly-created senior leadership positions at the beginning of 2018. Last July, Mistress merged with fellow Los Angeles independent agency Supermoon.
