Graeme Spicer and Leanne Linsky In Top Spots
July 18, 2013
(VOXtra) - David Goldberg, founder and Chief Edge Officer of Edge Studio - a premier voice over production and training company based in New York City with facilities across the U.S. - announces the appointment of two new executives to the Edge Studio management team, and the promotion of two team members to new leadership roles as Edge builds on recent growth.
Graeme Spicer joins the company as Managing Director.
Spicer brings a unique perspective to Edge, with over 25 years of experience in marketing, strategic planning, business development and operations management in companies from small startups to multi-billion dollar global organizations.
A faculty member at OCAD University - where he teaches on a part-time basis courses in marketing research, strategic planning and professional best practices - Spicer is also a working voice actor and an active member of the voice over community.
Also joining the company is Leanne Linsky as Director of Marketing and Community Development.
Linsky has enjoyed a successful career in leading the marketing activities in growing companies, and brings considerable expertise and creativity to the Edge team. In recent roles, she played an integral part of mergers and acquisitions and created team-building, new hire on-boarding and other training programs.
When not working at Edge, she is a writer, actor, and stand-up comedian.
Current Edge Studio employees Joey Schaljo (pictured) and Kristen Thorne have been promoted to Director of Education and Director of Production, respectively.
Schaljo and Thorne have been key members of the Edge team through Edge’s recent period of growth, and now are charged with the overall leadership of their respective business units.
David Goldberg is one of the country’s most active voice over producers and coaches, and is sought after as a keynote speaker at industry events across the country.
He has directed thousands of voice over sessions and has personally coached thousands of voice actors since founding Edge Studio in 1988.
"I’m energized by these recent appointments,” Goldberg says. "I want to spend more of my time doing what I really love – directing sessions, coaching actors, and evangelizing on behalf of the voice over industry.
"Bringing on talented executives with proven track records like Graeme and Leanne, and giving Joey and Kristen increased responsibility to run their business areas, will give me the time to become even more involved in the voice over community, to teach, and to spend time with our clients in the booth.”
