Benny Got Featured in Pitch Fanzine's Pitch List 2021
Yet another accolade for the amazing Wasters making stuff happen - Benny, our Creative Director, just got featured in Pitch Fanzine's Pitch List 2021, a list that celebrates 'super people' working behind the scenes in the advertising creative industry. Well, that he most certainly is!
About the Pitch Fanzine
The Pitch Fanzine was founded in 2015 by Sherry Collins to challenge inequality, discrimination and the lack of diversity in the creative industries, while simultaneously showcasing outstanding diverse creative talent. They are completely independent and awesome.
For their annual Pitch List, Pitch Fanzine invited people in the marketing & creative industries to nominate their colleagues who 'get things done.' When we heard of it, we couldn't help but think of Benny, who's been absolutely smashing it for 12 months straight and brought several award-winning projects to fruition.
Benny's Shiny Track Record
Over the last year, Benny has truly mastered the art of the Zoom pitch. He’s pitched almost weekly in 2020 - a total 50 times. The work he's pitched includes social campaigns, 3D, animation, illustration, film shoots, and stop motion. He's been getting his hands dirty on decks, presenting, generating ideas while also guiding the creative team.
"It’s safe to say Benny owned 2020. He is one of the hardest working creatives I know. Hitting 50 pitches in a year is insane! I’m so happy to see his efforts recognised by the wider creative industry. Bravo, Benny! 👏" - Mike Petricevic, Creative Partner
After over five years with us, he's also recently been promoted to Creative Director, taking on overall responsibility for creative output on the Supercell account. One of last year's projects he's pitched & produced is our multi award-winning project for Clash of Clans, where we created the world's first live motion capture game show.
The accolade follows a year of successes for Waste, which has seen the agency add to its roster of clients, increase revenue by 12%, receive Agency of the Year awards at both The Drum Content Awards and The DADIs, and become accredited by Best Companies as one of the UK’s Top 100 Small Businesses to Work for.
Well done, Benny - couldn't be prouder to have you on board.
