Ben Davies, who had most recently served as head of broadcast production at Droga5 NY, has joined Furlined as executive producer/director of development.
At Droga5, Davies had a hand in lauded work for Under Armour, Hennessy, Toyota, Newcastle Brown Ale, Honey Maid, Chobani and Spotify, among others. Prior to his Droga5 tenure, Davies spent 14 years at BBH London, working on campaigns for such brands as Audi, Levi’s, Vodafone and Johnny Walker.
Through his work with these two top creative agencies, Davies gained recognition for his international industry expertise. Davies is currently serving as a Film Craft jury member at the 2016 Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity and has also been a valued speaker at the Ciclope Festival in Berlin.
At Furlined, Davies will work closely with that company’s roster of directors, noting that “the opportunity to partner with, and build a team around them to bring their visions to life is truly exciting. Furlined’s culture, values and creative sensibilities match my own and I look forward to being part of the continued growth and development of new creative opportunities for the team.”
Diane McArter, founder and president of Furlined, said, “Production companies in particular are expected to possess a wider set of capabilities and more nimble processes for developing and delivering work to clients. Multi-platform storytelling, entertainment-style content, and a sustained dedication to craft—these are skills we continue to foster and Ben is the ideal candidate to help lead that charge.”
