Editorial company Whitehouse Post announced the promotion of Kristin Branstetter to executive producer of its Chicago office. Branstetter began her career with the company as a producer in 2002, before being promoted to senior producer in 2006 and then relocating to the Los Angeles office in 2010.
“We are very excited to welcome Kristin back to Chicago,” said Chicago partner/editor Matthew Wood. “Kristin’s previous background in our Chicago office and her depth of experience with the company make her uniquely positioned for this role in leading our office.”
Born in Miami, Fla., Branstetter first discovered she wanted to be a producer while watching Duran Duran music videos on MTV as a teenager. After graduating from UMKC, she began her career as a producer in Kansas City before making the move to Chicago in 2000. One of Branstetter’s career highlights was producing Budweiser and Bud Light Super Bowl spots via agency DDB Chicago. “My family would want to know what spots I produced and we would all be watching together on game day. It was a lot of fun,” said Branstetter.
She has worked with several major brands including Toyota, Buick, Nissan, Nike, Coke, McDonalds, State Farm, Anheuser-Busch, Allstate, Wrigley and Walmart.
