VENICE, CA — Rodeo Show (www.rodeoshow.us) recently welcomed executive producer Katie Walker to the content development and production company. An innovative producer who specializes in integrated brand storytelling and content production, Walker has spent years working on commercials and campaigns for top global brands, including Stella Artois, AT&T, Samsung, GE, Kellogg's, ESPN and Starbucks.
Walker most recently served as SVP, executive producer/head of integrated television production for Edelman. There, she oversaw the Kellogg's account, which she says “never had fewer than a dozen projects in production at any given moment.”
Prior to that, Walker brought her producing talents to Chicago’s Tris3ct, where she was head of production for the independent ad agency. Previous experiences saw Walker managing the Midwest region as production director for Razorfish, which included creating content to launch AT&T’s flagship store, managing their motion team and producing an interactive event around the “Use Me, Leave Me” fleet of shareable bikes at SXSW. Walker also served as executive producer for Mekanism in New York, and before that, as producer for Believe Media’s LA team.
“I’ve had the pleasure of working with Katie at various postings for more than 20 years,” says Mike Brady, executive producer at Rodeo Show. “She is smart, funny, and consistently excellent. Her work ethic is fantastic, and her ideas are always thoughtful and insightful. It is such an honor to have her join the team at Rodeo Show!”
“I’m excited to join Rodeo Show and work with my old friends Mike and Hani [Selim],” adds Walker from her home in Chicago. “I love the way they think about and approach each production, especially when a project is challenging. Their sensibilities match my own and I truly believe we can pull off the impossible when our creative minds come together on behalf of a director and the creative vision.”
