PLAYA DEL REY - Production company The Ebeling Group (www.theebelinggroup.com) has signed Stephanie Stephens as its newest rep, handling Texas and the West Coast region. Stephens' other clients include production company Tool of North America, Chrome Editorial and Stimmung Music + Sound Design. She will use her skills in the advertising and design space to handle TEG's roster of designers/directors at Lobo, MK12, Convert and Tronic.
As an independent rep, Stephens spearheaded the introduction of then little-known French director Francois Vogel to the American market. She brought Vogel, who was then aligned with production company Paranoid Projects, to Tool, forming satellite company Paranoid Projects@Tool.
Prior to becoming a rep, Stephens was a partner/account director at TBWA/Chiat/Day in LA, where she managed the Energizer, Museum of Contemporary Art and Industry Standard accounts. She joined the agency immediately after graduating from the University of North Carolina.
