Reach Agency, an agency dedicated to branded social video, announced on Friday that it has appointed Matt Labate to the newly-created position of VP of creative.

Labate will lead the agency’s creative and production services, supporting its anchor clients such as Nestle Purina, Marriott and Walmart.

Most recently, Labate worked with Reach Agency and its client Purina Nestle on  “I Get Beggin” Grammy campaign. They teamed with comedy channel Jash and director Julian Smith to create an original music video, which was ultimately broadcast as a commercial during the Grammy telecast.

He was also charged with overseeing creative for web series such as Jason Silva’s Shots of Awe and managing relationships with creators such as The Fine Brothers.

Prior to Discovery Digital, Labate spent three years at Sony Pictures Entertainment, where he worked on the team that developed and launched Crackle.
