FrancescaFerrariIntroducing Francesca Ferrari, Client Manager, Italy

Hello everyone! I’m Francesca and I’m looking forward to meet all of you (sooner or later)! Something about me… I’m from a city that I’m sure none of you heard before — La Spezia — but it’s worldwide known for its beautiful neighborhood, such as Cinque Terre (The Five Lands) and Portofino. I studied first in Florence, where I lived for almost ten years and where I got my degrees in “History of the Performing Arts” and “Musicology and Musical Heritage.” Then I moved to London where I received a Masters Degree in Music Industry Management at London Met.

SamanthaWolffIntroducing Samantha Wolff, Content Acquisition Coordinator

My name is Samantha and I am so excited to become full-time here at The Orchard as Coordinator for the Content Acquisition team! I have been a part of The Orchard since September, working part-time for BalconyTV, and it has been such a pleasure working here.

I grew up north of the city in Rockland County, specifically New City, and I graduated from Tulane University in New Orleans this past May, where I studied Business and Political Science. I can’t wait to work with and get to know everyone here. I am always down to go to see live music which is where I will be almost every weekend. Please feel free to reach out at any time!

Senior Manager, Scandinavia
Joined The Orchard in January 2011, as an intern

You’re our Scandinavian secret weapon, managing that ever-exciting region for us from our London office. How the #&@$ do you do that?
Hehe, I guess you could say that. It’s an extremely exciting market to be managing that keeps developing and growing. As you know, Scandinavia is the home of Spotify (Sweden), WiMP (Norway) and the first ever streaming and telco bundling service TDC Play (Denmark). Scandinavia is a role model for many other territories as streaming is king and playing a major role of the flourishing Scandinavian music industry.

Hello everyone! My name is Kalie and I’m very excited to be joining The Orchard as the Coordinator for Theatrical Marketing. I am originally from Duluth, Georgia and attended The University of Georgia where I studied Film and Television Production. I then went on to receive my Masters of Fine Arts in Film from Columbia University in New York City. I have produced a number of short films, including Aftermath, which played at over 15 international film festivals and received Best Dramatic Short at the Florida Film Festival. I have also worked on a series for the Travel Channel, in Development at @radical.media, assisted writer/director Naomi Foner and most recently, managed Studio Operations and Communications at Harbor Picture Company — a New York City based post house. In October, I decided to move to Los Angeles and am so thrilled to be a part of The Orchard’s LA team where I’ll be able to work on our amazing new theatrical projects. I look forward to working with you all soon!
