Humble Hires Mark Kovacs as Executive Producer
From the release:
New York, NY (May 3, 2016) – Bicoastal integrated production studio Humble has hired Mark Kovacs as Executive Producer. A longtime Humble collaborator, Kovacs will work alongside Founder/President Eric Berkowitz and Vice President/Executive Producer Persis Koch to manage projects out of Humble’s New York office.
“Mark is an exceptional producer and has been a valuable member of the Humble family for a long time, so we’re thrilled to bring him in-house as our new EP in New York,” said Berkowitz. “As Humble pushes into new areas including high-end effects and design, and original and long-form content, it’s a huge advantage that Mark is already innately familiar with our directors, clients, and company culture. He has hit the ground running and I’m confident that he will help us accomplish great things.”
Kovacs is an accomplished producer and a veteran of the commercial production industry, having worked all over the world for brands including Chevy, Cadillac, Audi, BMW, Verizon, AT&T, Proctor & Gamble, and more. He cut his teeth at One Such Films, moving through the ranks from production assistant to ultimately head of production and line producer; he later embarked on a successful long-term freelance career working as both a line producer and first assistant director.
During that time Kovacs also owned his own production company Commercial Vehicles Productions, which managed global projects for Jaguar, among others. He began working with Humble on a freelance basis in 2010.
“It’s been such a pleasure to collaborate with Humble in recent years, so when the opportunity came to join the team full time there was no hesitation,” shared Kovacs. “It’s already been a seamless transition, and having deeper involvement in projects and with the company itself is really rewarding. I’ve worked with countless production companies during my career, but I wouldn’t have wanted to land anywhere else.”
