Jenny Read
EVP, Director of Integrated Production
Saatchi & Saatchi NY and Publicis NY

NEW YORK, USA // Jenny’s career hasn’t always taken the traditional path - and she doesn’t plan on starting anytime soon. Her first job was in social work, then she moved to advertising, just to find the only difference is the budgets are bigger. From her first agency job as an art buyer she moved to producing print and TV for global beauty companies at agencies and in-house. Since then she has held just about every job you can have in a production, and with that experience brings a well-rounded point of view to every endeavor. Currently the Director of Integrated Production at Saatchi & Saatchi and Publicis New York, she brings over 20 years of production experience. Prior to helming Publicis Groupe’s multiagency production arm in New York, she was the head of production at KBS, where she also created and ran the Armoury, their in-house content production studio. The Armoury went on to create the agency’s first short film to be featured in the Tribeca Film Festival. From shooting Super Bowl spots to print campaigns, developing and evolving in-house production facilities, filming in over 20 countries, producing countless videos, and having work in every major production awards show – Jenny has it covered.
