LA-based music house Human Worldwide has hired Carol Dunn as executive producer. Dunn joins Human from post house PS260, where she was executive producer in its West Coast office for two years. She will report to Human’s partner and composer Gareth Williams.
In her new role, Dunn will be responsible for developing Human’s business from their LA office and growing its model to expand its brand, as well as helping market Human to current and potential clients. She will also work hand in hand with its sales team, and has an additional role in helping to create the company music as a creative producer.
At PS260, Dunn worked with many agencies and brands, including Omnicom, WPP, American Greetings, NBA, Hyatt, Kia and Instagram. Prior to that, she was EP/head of sales at Squeak E Clean Productions and Amber Music, where she oversaw and directed their national sales force, marketing and new business efforts. She also had roles at the record labels Capitol Records and Interscope Records, co-producing such soundtracks as Baz Lurhmann’s Romeo + Juliet, Boogie Nights and Office Space.
“I’m excited to bring my career experience from film and TV to Human with the intention of extending our focus beyond advertising,” says Dunn. “I joined Human because it was an opportunity to set my heart’s passion back on my musical career path with a company that has all the tools to change the idea of how a music house functions in our industry. After a rewarding stint in post production, I am overjoyed to be back.”
This news comes off the heels of the company’s expansion with its Sonic Branding department, helmed by senior producer Craig Caniglia, which has created work for brands such as Coca-Cola, IKEA, Visa, GE Appliances and Lowe’s. In addition, Human’s post department Post Human — led by chief engineer Sloan Alexander — recently mixed projects for Adidas, Under Armour, Google, Verizon and Stella Artois.
