Los York Taps Paul Abatemarco as Managing Director
Pioneering content agency and world-class production studio, Los York today announced the hiring of Paul Abatemarco as Managing Director to lead the company’s production efforts.
As the company continues the rapid growth that placed Los York as #1 on Inc. Magazine’s 5000 fastest growing companies in the Advertising and Marketing category (#8 overall), Abatemarco will help lead Los York Studios and its day-to-day operations as co-founders Dexton Deboree and Seth Epstein focus their efforts on evolving creative roles across the company’s content and studio sides.
Abatemarco was drawn to Los York for its style and quality of work, one known for its visceral and attention-grabbing flair for brands such as Jordan, Nike, Motorola, and Fitbit. He previously served as Executive Producer at Brand New School, MPC Creative, and Los York’s predecessor Stardust. Throughout his career he has worked on campaigns for a variety of brands such as Apple, Google, Honda, Ford, Ebay, T-Mobile, and Oreo among others.
Aligning with Los York’s belief in a smart, nimble approach and a die-hard commitment to creative excellence, Abatemarco values being a true partner to clients and fostering an environment based on trust and transparency. He explains: “I believe in surrounding myself with people who want to work as hard as I do and who demand creative excellence in the work they accomplish. I want to be a part of and to help further shape a community of people who are committed to being a part of something truly special.”
“I’ve long admired Dex and Seth, and recognized immediately just how compatible their philosophies and beliefs are with mine,” continues Abatemarco. “To return to Los York, formerly Stardust, and see its transformation, incredible growth and blinding momentum is amazing - I’m very excited by the challenge of taking something that is already great and making it even better.”
