Droga5 New York has made three key new hires in its production department.

While there he produced notable global campaigns for Coca-Cola, EA, ESPN, Intel, Heineken and Nike.

Revere began her production career at Fallon New York, before moving to Fallon’s main office in Minneapolis. She returned to New York in 2011 and was one of the first producers hired at Barton F. Graf 9000. While helping build the production department at Barton F. Graf 9000, she produced award-winning campaigns for Kayak.com, Ragù and Dish Network. Revere joins Droga5 after a year at McCann where she worked on New York Lottery, General Mills, MasterCard, Choice Hotels and Cigna, among others.
Amir-Hosseini joins Droga5 from Google Creative Lab where he worked on the Android Experiments Initiative and helped launch the platform website and a variety of Android applications. He also worked on the Tap to Translate feature you find in the Google Translate app. After his time at the Creative Lab, he helped the Google Access and Energy team, working mostly on content for the Google Onhub router that was released late last year. Prior to Google Creative Lab, Amir-Hosseini worked as a digital executive producer at Saatchi & Saatchi New York and working in the Los Angeles office, as well. During his time at both offices, Amir-Hosseini worked on a variety of digital initiatives, including Ideas for Good, Toyota/Yahoo Fantasy Football Hall of Fame, 100 Cars for Good, as well as the first ever social vehicle configurator (using Google Hangouts).
Sally-Ann Dale, chief creation officer of Droga5, noted that “hiring top talent is critical to business success for our clients, as well as for the agency. Ross, Amanda and Shayan’s considerable talent and extensive expertise will align quite nicely with the momentum we have going. I’m really looking forward to seeing what the future has to offer with them on board.”
