TV and video advertising agency marks 20th year with new appointments

The Happy Hour team

To mark its 20th year, Bristol-based TV and video advertising agency Happy Hour Productions has undergone a series of changes.

The agency has appointed Nicola Tyler as managing director and welcomed four new team members.

Holly Reoch joins as head of marketing, Kayleigh Cooper as head of business development, Grace Simmons as junior video editor, and Zoe Bulbeck as the fourth producer in the production team.

Happy Hour has introduced two new services this year.

Firstly, TV Essentials aims to assist first-time advertisers in creating and launching high-quality TV adverts at a cost-effective price. Additionally, the agency has transformed its in-house studio into a podcast studio, expanding its radio and podcast advertising services to enable clients to create their own podcasts.

Nicola Tyler said: “We’re taking important steps to strengthen our position in the advertising industry. We’re investing in outstanding new talent, as well as nurturing our in-house talent. We’ve launched new services and we’re adopting cutting-edge production techniques and technology, demonstrating our commitment to stay one step ahead and fuel future growth for our business, our clients and Bristol.”

Tom George, Happy Hour’s Founder and chief executive , said: 20 years ago, I was a fledging producer with a fairly simple idea; I wanted to take some of that TV advertising work from London and bring it to Bristol. In those days, if you wanted to make a TV ad, you had to use a London company. I didn’t understand why, when we had all these talented people in Bristol. Within ten years, we’d evolved from a commercials production company into a creative agency too, with some big advertisers relying on our creative expertise.
