MANCHESTER, NH – Griffin York & Krause (GY&K), a leading full-service, mid-sized and independent marketing innovation company, today announced the addition of an Emmy Award-winning team including Matt Doyle as Executive Producer/Director, Josh Drake as Technical Director/Senior Editor and Tyler York as Production Coordinator.
Doyle and Drake come to Manchester from ESPN in Bristol, Connecticut where they worked on shows like Kenny Mayne’s Wider World of Sports, E:60, and Sportscenter. They have been involved in remote/field production at dozens of major sporting events events including the Super Bowl, NBA Finals, and the World Series and have worked with A-List celebrities Tom Brady, Justin Bieber, Matt Damon, Ellen DeGeneres, Jimmy Kimmel, Snoop Dogg, Ben Stiller, Justin Timberlake, and more. Collectively, they have won ten New York Festival Awards, the Edward R. Murrow Award for sports journalism, Cynopsis Sports Media Award for Best Web Series, a Webby Award and four national sports Emmy Awards.
“Video is a huge opportunity for many brands given the need to produce compelling content across mediums,” said Travis York, President of GY&K. “This addition strengthens our overall service offering and gives our clients access to a top-notch team integrated with the agency to help tell their story.”
These hires, along with investment in an on-site post-production editing suite and a soundproof voiceover room, creates for GY&K an in-house video production department that will handle commercials, broadcast television, documentary, Web-based content, high-end graphic work, music and corporate videos.
“After twelve years working in broadcast television, I was looking for a new challenge,” said Doyle, executive producer/director at GY&K. “I knew I wanted to be a part of a company that was both ambitious and innovative and I found that at GY&K.”
“GY&K is becoming a refuge for all-star marketing talent by offering world-class marketing services in a collaborative, nimble and entrepreneurial environment,” added York. “People are looking for the work-life balance that New Hampshire uniquely offers – that’s proving attractive for top talent and clients.”
