EXCLUSIVE: Slate PR partners Simon Halls and Robin Baum are upping Guido Gotz to SVP of Film, TV and Live Entertainment.
Said Halls, “Guido is one of the most extraordinarily talented executives that we have had the good fortune to work with. His work ethic, his impeccable taste and instincts and his unrivalled talent relationships have all helped take our client’s campaigns to new levels. Even during a global lockdown, he has created innovative and very effective programs that have helped generate massive awareness for all of our clients. It gives us great pleasure to recognize his talent with this much deserved promotion.
Said Gotz, “I am truly humbled by this unexpected recognition. My first year at SLATE has flown by, especially considering how all of us had to adapt to a new way of doing business in these last few months. However, Simon and his partners have been exceptional leaders in navigating the company through these uncharted territories. It’s been an absolute joy collaborating with Simon, and even though I’ve had quite a few memorable experiences in my career, working with my incredible clients at SLATE has resulted in unrivaled pinch-me moments. May those never go away.”
