MediaMonks has named Olivier Koelemij to serve in the new role of managing director for the global production company’s U.S. West Coast operation. Previously executive producer of MediaMonks L.A., Koelemij was responsible for founding the Los Angeles office in 2014 and its successful acquisition and merger with Stopp LA, growing the West Coast base to 26 Monk staffers with eight nationalities.
MediaMonks Los Angeles works with leading brands and agencies including Uber, Google, Wieden + Kennedy and 72 & Sunny. In 2017 alone, the production company was behind work such as Old Spice’s robotic “S.Q.U.I.D” live gaming experience on Twitch, the KFC Zinger space flight experiment, Cannes pick “Quest to LEGOLAND” and band Real Estate’s “Stained Glass” interactive music video.
Koelemij was also a key driver behind MediaMonks Los Angeles’ move to its current “flagship store” on Abbot Kinney Blvd in Venice Beach. Koelemij’s new role is effective immediately, as he continues to grow U.S. operations alongside MediaMonks New York managing director Jason Prohaska under co-founder and COO Wesley ter Haar.
