Welcome, Alberto!

AlbertoMuerzaIntroducing Alberto Muerza, Client Relations & Marketing Assistant, Spain & Portugal

Hello everyone! Some of you may know me as I’ve been working as a​n intern​ in the Spanish office for over a year now. For the rest, I’m Alberto! Hi!

My first contact with The Orchard was three years ago when I did my internship during the summer of 2011 while I was studying Music & Media Management at the London Metropolitan University. After finishing my degree, I spent a few months getting more work experience at Universal Music Publishing at their UK offices, but as I was missing a lot my sunny Barcelona, I decided that it was about time to come back home. So after a greasy re-encounter with the Spanish Orchardites (we went to a burger place for lunch), I was back on board at The Orchard.

When I’m not at The Orchard, it is quite likely that you can find me running in Montjuic, a mountain close to the city and one of the nicest places in town, or having drinks with my friends at any bar, which at some point in the evening, any bar can also be one the nicest place in town.

Interesting fact: during my last year at college I was one of the winners of the Marketing and Promotional Orchard campaign for the artist Mike Viola.

I hope I get the chance to meet and work with you very soon.

Welcome, Des!

DesFiniganIntroducing Desiree Finigan, Office Administrator, Film & TV, Los Angeles

Hi Everyone, my name is Desiree Finigan, but feel free to call me Des.

I’m a native Californian from the San Francisco Bay Area, which makes me a proud and faithful 49ers and SF Giants fan. I found my way to Los Angeles when I was accepted to Loyola Marymount University, and graduated with a degree in Television Production. I’ve been a Production Coordinator and Associate Producer for multi-camera series for Sony Pictures Television, TV Land and the Disney Channel.

I’m an active member of the Junior League of Los Angeles, a women’s volunteer organization, where my focus has been in Development (fundraising) for the league. I’m chairing my first fundraiser this fall. I also enjoy doing home improvements and hope to add some stamps to my passport!

I’m excited to be joining The Orchard team and look forward to meeting everyone!

Welcome, Paul!

Paul PhotoIntroducing Paul Hanly, Director of Client Relations, The Orchard & General Manager, Frenchkiss Records

It’s been a long time coming, but I’m finally working with The Orchard. There were times that I came to the office so much throughout the years that I felt I could have just set up shop. I have spent the last 7+ years working with Syd Butler and Frenchkiss Records and I look forward to continuing the success there while playing a larger role inside The Orchard.

Originally, I am from New Jersey (Rutgers grad to boot!) and I have bounced around a few places in the music industry (Astralwerks, Capitol, Kemado/Mexican Summer) before settling in at Frenchkiss where I felt was a great place to grow and be creative. I am super into running (doing the NYC Marathon again this year!) and still obsess about live music, etc.

Looking forward to working with everyone!

Welcome, Kellie!

KellieMcElderryIntroducing Kellie McElderry, Manager, Film & TV

In a world where the millennials have made cable cutting cool, you have to decide if you’re going to wait for each phase to pass or jump on the boat before you’re left on an island alone. Several years ago I took a leap (no cable or TV) and it all made sense. These kids aren’t crazy — they see the future before most people do and embracing it is the key to success. Not only do you realize you have everything you need via Apple TV, Roku, etc. but you find yourself happy to pay any price for good quality content. Consumers are hungry for the next Jiro Dreams of Sushi and The Orchard is going to fulfill that need and more. When Paul started talking about picking up films from the festivals and really getting behind great content in a new way I already envisioned myself on the team and knew I had to be in this role.

A little bit about me, I’m a Los Angeles native who has adored the entertainment world since I used to sneak into every cinema class I could at USC. I started in Marketing after I graduated then explored the exciting world of PR, working on Fox Searchlight titles at ID Public Relations. I was always curious about what it would be like to be on the corporate side so I went on to work in Digital Marketing at Fox, helping develop the Digital HD brand and pushing the TV studios to do more Fox firsts with free pre-air premieres.

I’m thrilled to be joining The Orchard family!

Welcome, Dave!

DaveSuchmannIntroducing Dave Suchmann, Quality Control Coordinator

Hey! For those of you who don’t yet know me, I’m Dave Suchmann. I started out here at The Orchard in October 2013 on the Video Services team, and I’ve recently transitioned over to my new job as QC Coordinator on the Operations Team.

My first experience in the music industry was when I was 15, interning at VuDu Studios on Long Island. After graduating from Berklee, I spent two years engineering and writing arrangements at The Mix Palace Recording Studio, 1.5 years at Avatar Studios, and 1.5 years with EYM Digital at Flux Studios, all the while keeping busy with freelance production and engineering work.

I’ve had the opportunity to work on many different types of projects — ranging from terrible high school bands, to various Broadway Cast recordings and the 2010 & 2011 NFL Superbowl and Tony Awards live studio recordings. I’ve held jobs where it was common to work 30 straight hours without sleep, and jobs where the “artist” was more interested in drinking champagne than actually doing any REAL work!

I have to say that working at The Orchard has continued and (I believe) will remain to be the most gratifying and rewarding experience for me thus far. I’m really proud to say that I am a part of this company and family!
