Havas-owned PR firm (and B&T’s PR Agency of the Year for 2017) Red Agency has enhanced its content and technical production capabilities with the launch of The Village Blvd.
Village Blvd is an agency of specialists operating across key technical production disciplines, including events, experiential, photography, videography, design, and technical writing, as well as social and digital production.
The agency will be led by managing director, Steve “Fonty” Fontanot, who will be supported by executive director Kate Smailes.
The agency has spent the last few months building a team of 20 production specialists across Australia, headquartered in Sydney.
Village Blvd will also serve as a content hub for the broader Havas Village and its business units.
Fontanot said: “I’m excited to take this next step with the Group. We’re off to a solid start, and I look forward to further expanding our team and delivering world-class content and brand activities for the Red Agency Group and across the Havas Village.
“Having a number of specialists under one roof is a big advantage for our clients. With our expanded capabilities, we’re now in a position to deliver even more progressive and impactful marketing campaigns.”
