WORK WELCOME FOUR NEW FACES
18 March 2021

Work Editorial have welcomed four new editors across their offices in New York, Los Angeles, and London.

Theo Mercado, Trevor Myers, Leah Turner, and Jamie Hodgson have each been promoted to editor at their respective location, bringing extra zeal to the company as Work approaches its fifteenth anniversary. Let's find out more about the fresh talent below...


1. Theo Mercado



Theo Mercado first joined the Work team as an assistant, soon becoming an integral part of the team due to her nascent skills and likeable personality. Roles on major campaigns followed, as she built up the necessary experience to strike out solo.

As she now graduates to a fully-fledged editor role, she praises the family atmosphere at Work and looks forward to further in the "transparent and collaborative" creative process.



2. Trevor Myers



Like Mercado, Trevor Myers also began his tenure at Work as part of their New York office - their first runner in the city, in fact. As such, he's been a major part of the company's stateside growth in addition to developing his own cutting skills.

With strong client relationships already established, Myers is more than ready to sink his teeth into his new role. As he explains: "Work embraces creative collaboration and supports the growth of its own. I'm proud to be a part of it and grateful for the opportunity to carry on that legacy."



3. Leah Turner



Los Angeles-based Leah Turner was one of Work's most-requested assistants by editors and clients alike, so it's a natural progression to give her the tools to forge her own path.

Thanks to her documentary background, she has a forensic eye for detail and is well-known for her tenacious attitude when it comes to ensuring a perfect cut. It's an approach which leads Work's managing director and executive producer Marlo Baird to call Turner "the real deal".



4. Jamie Hodgson



Arriving at editing via graphics and IT, Jamie Hodgson has been a fixture at Work's London offices for the past few years. His talent as an assistant soon led to him sharing jobs with senior editors, cutting major music promos in order to hone his craft.

For Hodgson, it's partly the "great atmosphere" which makes him so excited to take on his new role. "Work still has the feel of a small company despite expanding to three offices - everyone mucks in and there's an inclusivity I've not experienced elsewhere."


Last word goes to founding partner Jane Dilworth, who is delighted to see Work's philosophy of encouraging young and emerging talent bear fruit.

"Theo, Trevor, Leah and Jamie are all incredibly special and in very different ways. It's been amazing to see these brilliant young people take the reins of their own careers and be part of the next generation at Work. I’ve now, after fifteen years, seen some brilliant editors come from being runners and assistants with us and it’s wonderful to see this continue to happen."
