LOS ANGELES (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — Paradigm has named Brad Turell as executive vice president of corporate communications, where he will report directly to chairman/CEO Sam Gores.
Turell served as the head of corporate communications in the early days of the WB Network and Fox Broadcasting Co. At Paradigm, he’ll run publicity, advertising and branding across the agency’s departments. Bill Harrison, who set up the agency’s corporate communications department, has moved aside to focus on internal and outside media consulting gigs, according to Variety.
“Brad has an impressive track record and a great deal of experience working closely with the top CEOs in our industry to help formulate and implement strategies that have helped their companies establish clear and marketable brands that redefined the way we look at those businesses,” Gores said in a statement.
Turell will focus on elevating the profile of Paradigm, who has grown considerably through strategic acquisitions that included Writers & Artists, Monterey Peninsula Artists and Little Big Man Booking.
Turell spent the past 11 years at the WB and orchestrated the announcement of the CW Network. He most recently became a consultant WB TV Group president Bruce Rosenblum. –by CelebrityAccess Staff Writers
