Jingle Punks, the U.S. headquartered leading full-service audio creative agency, today announced the appointment of veteran music industry executive, Janine Kerr.

Bringing over eight years of experience in television network and cable and 20+ years of experience within the music industry, Kerr will be responsible for expanding the agency’s footprint in Australia, offering custom music services for TV, film and the advertising industry.

The new hire comes at a time of continued growth for the agency, which hosts offices in New York City, Los Angeles, Nashville, Toronto and Brazil. Kerr and the new Australian office will be based in Melbourne.

“Our goal is to build a physical presence on the ground in Australia and ultimately grow into a fully-fledged creative studio,” said Jared Gutstadt, co-founder, CCO and president, Jingle Punks. “Janine is highly regarded both in the U.S. and Australia for her in-depth knowledge of music at all levels, and I’m stoked to bring an innovative partner on board that will complement our efforts in raising the bar when it comes to branded music.”

Janine was most recently vice president of Fox Sports Music based in LA, leading creative on music for all in-show and promos under the Fox Sports Group. In this role, she was responsible for running the music department and overseeing Fox Sports Network and Cable, along with Regional Sports, Deportes, Soccer & Soccer +, Big Ten, Fuel, Speed, Fox Sports 1, and Mundo Fox Music. While at FOX, Janine was instrumental in championing numerous deals for the Jingle Punks team within the entertainment space, including the most recent collaboration with rapper Lil Wayne for Fox Sports 1’s new show, Skip and Shannon: Undisputed. Prior to that, Janine was Director of Promo Music Services at NBC Universal where she first started working with Jingle Punks.

“I’ve been very impressed by the agency’s disruptive model and unique culture while working with the team across all aspects of music within the entertainment industry,” noted Kerr. “I look forward to returning to my homeland and helping the agency build its presence amongst the Australian music scene.”

Jingle Punks has a catalogue of over 500,000 music songs paired with their proprietary and patented search engine, The Jingle Player. The hire of Janine Kerr and opening of an Australian office signifies Jingle Punks’ evolution as it continues to explore and expand its roster of next level music-driven television, film and advertising content around the globe.
