Adam Schwartz and Jim Ulbrich join Nomad Editing

Nomad Editing has expanded its New York staff with the addition of editors/partners Jim Ulbrich and Adam Schwartz. Their hiring comes on the heels of EP/partner Jennifer Lederman and editor/partner Jai Shukla joining the studio earlier this year.

Jim Ulbrich comes to Nomad  — an Avid Media Composer and Adobe Premiere house — after working at a variety of New York-based editorial shops. Since joining Nomad, Ulbrich has worked on projects for Saatchi & Saatchi NY and Toyota with Droga5. He is now finishing a campaign with Grey. He collaborates on many projects with director Matt Smukler from Community Films.

Ulbrich began his career at Berlin Cameron and then moved to 89 Edit. He then moved to Mad River and then Beast where he became a partner in the company. He has edited campaigns for AT&T, Cheerios, Hanes and Coke.

Schwartz has followed a similar career trajectory to Ulbrich. His client list includes big brands such as Google, HP, Verizon, Reebok and Nike. Schwartz has worked with high-profile directors, including Janusz Kaminski, Errol Morris, Jared Hess and Wes Anderson. He’s worked on several projects since joining Nomad, and is now editing with BBDO NY. Schwartz began editing at Lost Planet before he became a founding partner at Beast.


Jennifer Lederman to lead Nomad’s NYC office

The bi-coastal Nomad Editing Company has brought on Jennifer Lederman as executive producer and company partner to lead and expand the studio’s New York office. Lederman was most recently VP/managing director at BlueRock in New York.

Lederman began her career as a business manager working on national accounts at agencies FCB and J. Walter Thompson. She then moved to the post side of the business, joining Red Car, where she worked her way up to national managing director and oversaw five offices nationwide. During her time at Red Car, she created a design and VFX division. In 2010, Lederman joined BlueRock, where she managed teams working on national and international campaigns for a variety of brands.

Jennifer is a board member of AICE, a past member of NYWIFT, and an avid kick boxer.
