Global creative collective Thinkingbox has added another force to its leadership team with the promotion of Kari Juip to Managing Director of its Salt Lake City office. In her new position, Juip will focus on growing client relationships, supporting the team in continuing to craft award-winning work, nurturing the culture and recruitment of exceptional talent, expanding her involvement with the overall company leadership team, and championing the Salt Lake City’s growth strategy.
Juip joined the Salt Lake City office in 2015 as Executive Producer. Prior to that, she was a Senior Producer in San Francisco at Organic, where she led engagements with various clients such as Autodesk, Cisco, VMware, and Bank of America. After joining Thinkingbox, her role grew into Director of Production, and now Managing Director. Kari’s leadership skills, keen eye for talent, and exceptional organizational skills made her an obvious choice for this role.
“Kari has been an essential part of the growth of Thinkingbox. She has forged the path to a mature production pipeline while fostering and growing client relationships. We’re excited about Kari’s new role and the years of experience that she brings to the SLC office,” said Amir Sahba, CEO.
This promotion solidifies Thinkingbox’s all-female team of managing directors, joining Sarah Scott in Vancouver, Rania Hattar in Los Angeles, and Christine Clark in Toronto. Thinkingbox has seen significant growth in recent years and has acquired three impressive agencies, Welikesmall, Aarra, and AntiSocial, in 2020 alone. This growth, along with a continued focus on both craft and solving client’s business problems, as well as the additional roster of all-star talent, has dramatically expanded the company’s service offering, making them a robust design and production collective within the industry.
