STRENGTH IN NUMBERS AT OB MANAGEMENT.

Director agents OB Management have enjoyed a productive summer so far. As well as adding StrangeLove to their promo roster, they’ve now hired agency producer Lula Boardman as their new Director’s Rep for Commercials and Content.

Spells at Iris, JWT, and TBWA\Media Arts Lab have made Boardman a firm fixture in the advertising realm. Together with Otis Bell and Jez Murrell, she’s ready to push OB Management’s commercial talent.

Boardman says it’s been an easy transition: “Ever since becoming aware of OB Management as a producer… they swiftly became my go-to company for every script and brief that hit my desk.”


She adds: “They’re hugely passionate about promoting and nurturing all the talent they look after, and are a really lovely team of people to boot, which I’m thrilled to be joining.”

For founder Otis Bell, signing Boardman was a “total no-brainer”. He says: “Everyone knows how hard it is to find a good rep and therefore we wanted to look outside of the usual suspects.


I feel like our team is complete and I’m excited about what we can all achieve together.

 ”

“Her experience of producing at a diverse range of agencies was particularly appealing as we strive to offer our clients a level of understanding and insight of today’s market… I feel like our team is complete and I’m excited about what we can all achieve together.”

Of course, “we” now includes StrangeLove. The production outfit have been on OB Management’s radar since launching in 2016. Director’s rep Sam Davey notes “their talented group of directors… continue to push the envelope in all areas of filmmaking” - something OB will only encourage.


StrangeLove’s Tom Berendsen thinks it’s the ideal partnership: “Sam and Kim [Jarrett’s] energy, knowledge and enthusiasm is second to none.

"We’re pumped to be working alongside OB in building StrangeLove’s music video output this year and I know they’re gonna be an integral part in helping our directors get to the next level and continue to flex their muscles.”
