11 Dollar Bill has hired ad industry vet Jamie Slade as Executive Producer at its Boulder studio. Slade, whose background includes a post as Senior Producer with Crispin Porter + Bogusky, will oversee production and head sales for the post production studio, which specializes in creative design, editing and finishing for advertising, branded content and other media.

“Jamie's energy, enthusiasm, and versatile experience will fit in perfectly at 11 Dollar Bill and our long-term plan for continued growth and success,” said Managing Partner Lisa Effress. “In addition to being super talented and goal-oriented, Jamie is also one of the nicest guys around. We are incredibly lucky to have him join our team!”

Slade is well known to 11 Dollar Bill. He partnered with the studio as a freelance producer on several recent projects. He also worked with Effress and the studio’s Creative Lead Wayde Samuel when they were all on staff at Crispin Porter + Bogusky. “This opportunity came up at the perfect time for me,” Slade said. “11 Dollar Bill has cultivated great talent and is producing inspired work. It’s where I want to be for the long term.”

Slade has been an executive producer and producer, primarily on the agency side, for more than a decade. For the past three years, he has been a freelancer on projects for Colorado agencies Red Antler (Hasbro, Peppa Pig), Mekanism (Sling TV) and Fortnight Collective (Noodles & Co., Steamboat Springs Resort). He also produced for global agency 72andSunny (Carl's Jr., Trojan Condoms), and McCann, New York (Converse, MGM Grand, Aria Hotels).

During his nine year tenure at Crispin Porter + Bogusky, Slade contributed to multiple accounts including Fruit of the Loom, Jose Cuervo and Infiniti. He was Senior Producer on the agency’s Captain Obvious campaign for Hotels.com. As Integrated Producer, he was involved in its award-winning work for Kraft Mac & Cheese. He also contributed to the global launch of Xbox One.

“The best producers can read a room instantly, navigate issues, manage tough feedback and keep the team positive,” Slade said. “My role is to stay focused and solutions oriented.”

Slade’s experience as a producer dates to his college days at the University of Oregon when he produced music videos for local bands, some of which attracted viral engagement of more than a million views. “I didn’t realize at the time that this was going to be my career,” he recalled. “I did it because it was fun.”
