Brackett comments: “I admire Los York and the idea of building a team of hyphenate talents that want to create beautiful content and who contribute on many aspects of the creative process from start to finish."
She continues: "What I found so compelling about Los York is from the very top their Creative Leaders really are true multidisciplinary talents - strategists, cd’s, ad’s, cw’s and directors in the form of one person. It really taps a nerve in the changing advertising landscape. I hope to contribute by building and nurturing these unique talents and ultimately celebrate Los York as the awesome place to work for both freelance and full-time staff.”

He continues: “Emily will not only facilitate those goals in her new role, but she herself represents those values in what she brings to the table, her varied and eclectic experience and background and simply the way she views the world.”
