Derby has brought Rebecca Niles on board as executive producer. The move marks her return to Derby after she had been freelancing. Earlier she had a two-year stint with Derby as head of production plus prior work for brands including WeWork, ESPN, Nike, Bloomberg Philanthropies, Aruba Tourism Board and British Airways. She also produced a variety of content for Complex Networks such as Not Afraid: The Shady Records Story with Eminem, 50 Cent and Dr. Dre, plus hit shows Sneaker Shopping and Hot Ones. In her new role, she will grow Derby’s creative roster, expand opportunities for its directors, and partner with agencies and brands to create inspired content.
Derby’s roster currently includes Away Lands, Catherine Orchard, Emily Elizabeth Thomas, Josh Hayward, Roberto Serrini, Ryan Balas and Shomi Patwary. Derby has also secured new sales representation on the West Coast through Devine Reps with Sara Barnthouse and Steven Cook, and continues in the Midwest with rep Robin Stevens. Recent work under Niles includes an Ad Council campaign for “Save The Food” and a Hilton Hotels campaign with GSD&M Austin. Additionally, Derby produced the PSA fashion film Heatwave with director Grant Greenberg for V Magazine and Keep America Beautiful, featuring a star-studded cast and music track by Lizzo.
