Richardson joined Cutters in 2015, after gaining experience and contacts as a producer for visual effects studio A52 in LA and editorial company Cosmo Street (LA and NY). On behalf of Cutters, she has produced Super Bowl spots for Lifewtr, Nintendo and WeatherTech, and high-profile campaigns for brands that include Capital One, FCA North America (Fiat, Dodge Ram, and Jeep), Gatorade, Google, McDonald's and Modelo, to name but a few.

In her new role, her oversight will expand into managing and recruiting talent, as well as maintaining and building the company's client base.

Casey, as head of production, will focus on optimizing workflows, project management and bidding processes. Some of his recent work includes producing the Always #LikeAGirl campaign, Budweiser's Harry Caray's Last Call viral spot and Whirlpool's "Care Counts” campaign.

"I am thrilled that both Heather and Patrick have agreed to take on these new roles," says Duncan. "They are two of the best producers I have worked with in my career, and I am looking forward to watching the company grow through their leadership."

"I've been fortunate to have worked with some excellent executive producers during my career, and I'm honored and excited for the opportunity to expand the scope of my role on behalf of Cutters Studios, and alongside Patrick Casey," adds Richardson. "Patrick's kindness and thoughtfulness, in addition to his intelligence and experience, are priceless. Together, we are committed to continually finding more effective and efficient ways to help our partners solve the challenges they face."

"Our editors and assistant editors are the most creative people I have ever worked with," notes Casey. "It has been amazing working with Heather over the past several years, and I'm confident that these promotions will make Cutters even stronger."
