GENEVIEVE SHEPPARD ARRIVES AT BRF

BRF’s recruitment drive continues with the signing of Genevieve Sheppard as their new Executive Producer and Head of Production.

Since rebranding as BRF, the company have been making waves with a string of new arrivals. Described as an “absolute heavyweight” in her field, Sheppard brings sizeable agency experience to her new roles.


BRF mean business, eh? How did Sheppard catch their eye? Sheppard made an impression at both Bartle Bogle Hegarty and Wieden + Kennedy as she put her stamp on TV and digital content. Throw in time spent producing documentaries in North America and you’ve got one strong CV.


Genevieve was such a natural choice at a time where BRF is reaping the rewards of hard work growing the global roster and output in film.

Not too shabby! What else has she done? Sheppard has worked with plenty of brands in her time. She helped introduce ‘Cooling Dust™’ to the masses for Stride Gum, while she was part of the team that gave detergent ads a memorable kick up the backside for Finish.



Hiring Sheppard was a no-brainer, then? Indeed. BRF managing director, Margo Mars, says: “I’m continuously looking at ways to expand our team and expertise; both in production and creative talent.

"Genevieve was such a natural choice at a time where BRF is reaping the rewards of hard work growing the global roster and output in film.”


And is Sheppard raring to go? She says: "I am thrilled to join Margo Mars and her team in the London office. It's the perfect time to become part of this visionary company, especially at a crucial time of the recent BRF rebrand and expansion of the director roster.”
