(New York, New York--May 9, 2016) Deluxe creative editorial company Beast announces that Melissa Lubin has joined the company as Executive Producer of its New York office. Bringing a decade of deep experience across all facets of production and client services for editorial, sound and graphic design, VFX and finishing, she will lead talent development, build production teams and introduce new clients to Beast’s talent and services.
Lubin joins Beast from Cutting Room, where she spent 11 years and moved up the ranks to Executive Producer, a role she held for six years. There she worked with agencies and production companies including BBDO, McCann, Droga5, Publicis, O Positive, Station Film and more, and was instrumental in expanding the reach of the company’s talent and building its client roster.

We’re excited to have someone of her caliber join us to build and nurture top production and editorial talent.”
