Hornet promotes Hana Shimizu to managing director, adds EP Alex Unick
People on the Move
- NEW YORK
Mixed media production company Hornet has promoted Hana Shimizu to managing director/executive producer and brought Alex Unick on staff as a full-time EP.
Shimizu has been an integral part of the Hornet team for over a decade. She joined in 2004, only three years after Hornet was established. After working as a producer at Hornet for five years, she took a brief hiatus as a freelance producer where she further refined her skillsets before returning to Hornet in 2015 as an EP.
In April 2019, Unick began freelancing as an EP at Hornet. He brought with him a wealth of well-rounded industry experience, having worked at Psyop and Blacklist for 11 years, where he’d originally joined as an intern and very quickly leapfrogged through the ranks from assistant producer to producer to EP for his final two years at the sister companies.
In Shimizu’s new position as managing director, she will continue her EP duties alongside Unick, but will also work in closer tandem with managing partners Michael Feder and Greg Bedard to take Hornet into the next phase of its evolution.
