Caitlin Grady has been named managing director and executive producer of Cutters New York, said Cutters Studios President/Managing Director Craig Duncan and Cutters Editor Steve Bell on Monday.
Grady comes to Cutters from Whitehouse Post New York, where she was executive producer. She also served in that role at Bug Editorial.
“Caitlin is a proven leader who is universally respected and loved within the creative community,” said Duncan in a statement. “We are very proud of the foundation we’ve built at Cutters New York and throughout our network. With Caitlin’s knowledge and perspective, adding her to our leadership team at this pivotal time is incredibly exciting.”
“Caitlin has worked with some of the most creative people in the industry and been an important part of a lot of really fantastic work,” Bell added, also in a statement. “And like Cutters, she clearly has a commitment to building long-lasting client relationships. She also has a track record of supporting an impressive list of editorial talent by building creative environments and giving them opportunities to grow.”
“I’ve had the great pleasure of working among the best and most talented since I joined this business; Cutters is no exception. I started my career at a very small but influential edit house, honed my skills at a larger post-production facility and now feel very honored to be invited to manage Cutters NYC at its prime,” said Grady.
“Cutters is my Goldilocks company – the right size, the right time and the right place. For three years running, Cutters has had the top spot in the Super Bowl according to the USA Today Ad Meter and everyone I know. I’m inheriting a stellar roster and a gorgeous roof deck in Soho and am eager to make my mark driving business as well as recruiting and building talent in NYC.”
High-end editorial boutique Cutters is the flagship brand of Cutters Studios with offices in Chicago, New York, Detroit, Los Angeles, Kansas City and Tokyo.
