LOS ANGELES, USA // An industry veteran of 14 years, Abbi Russal-Holzworth got her start fresh out of liberal arts college "in the mailroom" as an executive assistant and receptionist.  She took a shine to copywriting and began contributing to presentations, steadily building up experience and clients. 

In 2006, she made the leap to account executive as a formative member of Ignition's Print department.  Over next decade, she shepherded groundbreaking and award-winning projects such as Premonition, The Other Guys, District 9, Daredevil,The People vs. OJ Simpson and The Magnificent 7 to name a few.  In her current role as President, she oversees a diverse team of creative directors,  account executives, art directors, 3D/matte painters and production artists. Additionally, she is working with  other senior company leadership to solidify Ignition as an industry leader in the Integrated Marketing arena.

Most recently and importantly, she's expanded her executive role in the last year to include "parent" with the addition of her son Isaac.
