Whitehouse Post Hires Annabel Bennett as EP in London
Editorial company Whitehouse Post has announced the hiring of Annabel Bennett as executive producer of its London office.
An experienced agency producer, Bennett joins Whitehouse Post after spending more than a decade producing adverts for JWT, TBWA, Publicis and Leo Burnett. In more recent years, she brought her talents to VFX working at both CherryCherry and MPC. For Bennett, filling the EP role at Whitehouse was the perfect next step. “Having been an agency producer as well as a VFX producer, I feel lucky to have been a part of both sides of the process. Joining the Whitehouse as EP, I feel I already have an overall understanding of the industry and clients, which affords me the ability to jump right in with this new role.”
During her career, Bennett produced work for a variety of top-tier brands including McDonald’s, L’Oréal, Rimmel, HSBC, and Vodafone. Her first contact with Whitehouse was as a client, where she experienced their impressive editorial roster first hand. “Looking at the roster, the talent is so strong and it feels like such an exciting time to grow and develop the editor’s work and expand their client bases,” says Bennett. In addition to working with the editors, Bennett will focus on creating the best possible experience for clients. “Having been a client myself, I know what it’s like to be in their shoes. I’m excited to be in the position to make sure their needs are met and ensure our clients have a wonderful experience working with us.”
According to Whitehouse Post partner and editor John Smith ACE, Bennett’s stellar reputation and industry experience make her an ideal choice for the EP role. “We are thrilled that Annabel has joined us,” says Smith. “She is bright, personable, and highly regarded in the industry, we are lucky that she has decided to call Whitehouse Post home.”
