LOS ANGELES (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — The Windish Agency has added yet another name to their expanding L.A. operation, this time tapping Eli Thomas as their new Director of Events and Sponsorship.
Thomas is tasked with overseeing planning for all Windish-branded events, as well as sponsorship initiatives for Windish's entire roster of artists.
Prior to joining Windish, Thomas worked at FILTER Magazine/Creative Group for more than five years, producing events across the U.S. Included in this was booking talent for Filter's live events partnership with Toyota, dubbed Toyota Antics, which has produced more than 400 events in the past three years.
Most recently, Thomas launched Bagavagabonds, an art collective that produces charitable events featuring all artistic genres.
"Each year the number and size of events we produce increases," said agency president Tom Windish. "Up until this point, we've been running them by scraping together the resources of our staff that have other responsibilities to the agency. I'm happy to finally have someone in place to focus solely on our events, sponsorship of our events and brand relationships overall. This is an important step in the maturation of the agency." – CelebrityAccess Staff Writers
