INDUSTRY VETERAN DON JANKLOW JOINS MAKE IT HAPPEN PRODUCTIONS AS EXECUTIVE VICE PRESIDENT OF MARKETING AND SALES
Make It Happen Productions’ (MIHP) CEO and Executive Producer Billy Frank recently announced addition of seasoned marketing and sales executive Don Janklow to the company’s roster of talent.
“Over the past few years we’ve watched our industry explode with new demands in content production across ever-changing media platforms and constantly evolving technologies,” explains Frank. “Not only have we continued to offer traditional advertising, marketing campaigns and live action television production to our long term clients but we’ve been instrumental in also handling production within these new digital realms. Last year we jumped headstrong into development as well with our first television series On Begley Street which marks our foray into transformational messaging, a big direction for us as creators. As Executive Vice President of Marketing and Sales, Don will help us embrace all of this new growth as we head into the future.”
As the newest member of our team, Don enhances MIHP through his expertise in entertainment management, corporate marketing, sponsorships and licensing. For years he has created multi-million dollar marketing and sponsorship platforms for events such as the Los Angeles Marathon and the Indy 500. Ahead of his time, Don innovated by merchandising sports legend Joe Namath, discovering and elevating the career of comedian Andy Kaufman and was the first to successfully create licensed opportunities for global brands Vera Wang and Lee Jeans and brand extensions for Kathy Ireland, Joseph Abboud and Carmen Marc Valvo. As MIHP’s scope expands, Don will work with our clients to develop corporate integrated marketing, brand licensing, experiential events and activation programs.
“We are proud to welcome such an excellent consensus-builder who is consistently positive, confident, fearless and persuasive to insure our clients’ marketing objectives are met. Fearless and visionary, we consider Don a reckoning force to motivate decision makers, drive sales and elevate project potentials,” Frank concludes.
