The Mill Chicago hires EP Jenny Lumpkin
People on the Move
Jenny Lumpkin has joined The Mill Chicago as executive producer. She spent the past seven years at Chicago-based Quriosity Productions. As sr. producer she developed Quriosity’s production offering from the company’s inception, overseeing production across all departments, managing artists and working to maintain the highest caliber of client and artists relationships.
Lumpkin has worked with brands the likes of Chevrolet, McDonald’s, Sony, and MillerCoors. In addition to her commercial endeavors, she is highly involved in the industry’s diversity and inclusion initiatives, championing a more inclusive industry with Free Spirit Media, the LGBTQ National Business Associations and producing content for the 2016 Hillary Clinton for America campaign. She’s also been instrumental in AICP Midwest’s success.
Lumpkin will be working alongside The Mill’s three other EPs: Peter Hullinger, Blake Nickle and Brian Smego. She’ll be focused on forging relationships with creative production company partners and expanding the company’s reach in Chicago and beyond.
Lumpkin said, “Many of the artists and employees have been my friends for years. The Mill has always felt like a second family to me and their work is simply stunning. What really drew me in was the opportunity to work with the two women at the helm: Tracey Khan, now head of production, and Erica Hilbert, the studio’s managing director. They’re strong leaders and inspiring women who have a real vision. For me, they represent a new era at The Mill in Chicago, and I couldn’t be more honored to be a part of their team.”
