MANAGEMENT CONSULTING & REPRESENTATION

Mary Knox

For the past decade Mary has run production and post-production companies, with a focus on strategic sales and talent development. Most recently, as managing director of Smoke & Mirrors, she worked directly with many brands, packaging entire productions from storyboards to delivery. This experience is at the core of Minerva.

Storytelling is a common thread throughout Mary’s career. As a former journalist and award-winning copywriter, her work as a sales rep and an executive producer has been all about finding the strongest ideas and then matching them with the best talent to bring these brand stories to life.

Building brands isn’t easy or simple. Business development will generate the necessary leads. But production and post-production companies and their talent need additional management support in a variety of areas in order to accomplish their goals. In addition to her own experience in management, Mary’s six-year stint on the Digital Board of the AICP gave her invaluable insight into how many companies and agencies operate and conquer on-going day-to-day business challenges.

Whether you are seeking fresh advice on how to solve a seemingly intractable problem, or looking for new talent and a path to develop their reels and careers, or in need of a different sales strategy or a unique perspective on your company’s operations in general… Minerva wants to help you build your brand’s equity.
