Omelet, an L.A.-based branding, marketing and entertainment company, has added Katrin Tenhaaf and Josie Brown to its sr. leadership team. Tenhaaf, who most recently served as global group account director at TBWA\Chiat\Day, is now partner and head of client services. Meanwhile Brown has been promoted from sr. account director to partner and head of business development at Omelet.
Tenhaaf has more than 15 years of account and client leadership expertise at global agencies, including Ogilvy & Mather London and Amsterdam, BBDO, 180LA and TBWA\Chiat\Day. Her work has spanned 60-plus countries and includes brands like Adidas, Dove, Heineken, ING, Johnnie Walker, Sony and Visa. At Omelet, Tenhaaf provides account leadership for clients such as Microsoft, AT&T and Coca-Cola, driving the agency’s organic growth and expansion. Since joining, Tenhaaf has led several successful client projects, including Microsoft’s Work Wonders Project—a documentary-style series that features Pencils of Promise founder Adam Braun and School in the Cloud’s Sugata Mitra on a collaborative journey to revolutionize education.
Brown has produced work in more than 30 markets, with brands including L’Oreal Paris, Peroni Nastro Azzurro, Colgate, Sony Ericsson, Adidas, T-Mobile, and Revlon. As Omelet’s head of business development, Brown is now responsible for growing the company’s client roster.
Since joining, Brown has worked on Moët & Chandon’s first global spot which was created in conjunction with director Samuel Bayer, AT&T’s “It Can Wait” campaign which encourages teens to stop texting and driving, and Betsy’s Best, a new line of gourmet and all-natural nut and seed butters that mark the company’s first co-owned brand, developed under Omelet Brands.
