New management on Farm


The Ant Farm, the Los Angeles-based entertainment advertising agency, has installed a new management team.

Rodd Perry, Amanda Edwards and Andy Solomon have been elevated to co-presidents, creative directors, audio/visual, overseeing creative operations for motion picture advertising.

Perry also will take on the title of CEO, and CFO Melissa Palazzo has been named COO. Together they will oversee operational aspects of the company.

Mike Greenfeld and Barbara Glazer, co-chairmen of the 10-year-old company, said that Perry, Solomon and Edwards have been key to the growth of the company from a small boutique to a full-service advertising firm.

In a related move, Julian Hills has been elevated to president of the Ant Farm print division, while Cindy Hauser will assume the title of executive creative director, working in such areas as broadcast, home entertainment, theme parks and Microsoft Games and Disney Theme Parks.
