Frank Brooks joins Swift as head of production
People on the Move
- PORTLAND, Ore.
Creative agency Swift has brought Frank Brooks on board as head of production.
Taking on the recently created role, Brooks will serve as production lead across all Swift clients and help the agency expand into new competencies. As Swift continues to grow its offerings beyond a core expertise in social, Brooks will lead the charge to showcase the agency’s commitment to excellence in craft across all production formats.
Brooks started his career with National Geographic Television before shifting into film and advertising. His diverse body of work spans creative-led agencies, including AKQA, Argonaut, GS&P and Wieden+Kennedy; as well as work on the client side for Nike and Apple. Agency productions include work for Fitbit, ESPN, MINI, PlayStation, and Uber.
Brooks was tapped by newly appointed chief production officer Marni Beardsley. “It’s my goal to create a team built on an array of multidisciplinary and complementary strengths,” said Beardsley. “Frank brings a grounded perspective to leading productions that’s a great contrast to my free-form approach. His seasoned blend of client side and agency experience adds a rich perspective to the work. Beyond that, his combination of patience and drive for creative excellence is an invaluable asset for guiding projects to better, more unexpected places.”
