STACIA AKABA REJOINS BIG BUOY AS EXECUTIVE PRODUCER.
23 May 2019

Big Buoy are pleased to announce the return of Stacia Akaba as their new Executive Producer.

After productive spells at the likes of Envy, Rushes, and Filament Post, Akaba has renewed praise for her old stomping ground: "Big Buoy is a special place. It delivers exactly what it says it will and then some."

Akaba goes on to say that she can't wait to get stuck in with "a talented bunch of creatives who make everybody feel special and important in the process", adding that such camaraderie is both "refreshing and extremely rare."

For Managing Director Colin Sumsion, Akaba's return is a no-brainer: "Stacia lights up a room and brings her own vibrant creative style with her. She is loved by everyone she meets and will add so much value to our already incredible Exec team."
