Gulf Broadcast Expands it’s Social Media and Content Generation Business
Gulf Broadcast welcomes Latifa Algosaibi and Ryan Andrews as new team members charged with developing the company’s portfolio and service offerings in social media and content generation.
Ryan fills the Marketing and Content Generation Manager role while Latifa is joining as a production and social media intern. Gulf Broadcast looks forward to integrating them with the team and providing its clients with new tools and services to elevate their marketing and public relations efforts in the digital age.
“I am thrilled to welcome both Ryan and Latifa to Gulf Broadcast and have high hopes that they will positively impact our operations,” says Mahmood Al-Yousif, Gulf Broadcast’s CEO, “We truly believe that for a message to have the required resonance, a comprehensive multi-facetted communications strategy must be adopted. It is no longer sufficient to have a press release, or a single corporate video or a few social media posts if they appear in their own vacuum. Recognising this, we now provide a 360-degree strategy to attain successful video and marketing campaigns that generate real engagement and elevate the brand as a whole. I look forward to both Latifa and Ryan enabling us to continue to do this cost effectively and at a much faster turn-around for the benefit of our clients,” Mahmood concluded.
Ryan worked in both commercial and non-commercial digital media for the past ten years. He worked with a large range of clients from global car brands to start-up iPhone apps producers. He contributed several articles to digital media and arts journals. “All companies know video drives engagement more than any other activity,” says Ryan, “ As marketing manager, I’m looking forward to enhancing that even further for our clients though better and more creative strategies and solutions.”
Latifa recently graduated in Visual Arts and Communication from Franklin University in Lugano Switzerland and has completed the film making course at the New York Film Academy in Florence, Italy. On her role as social media and production intern, Latifa comments “I am joining Gulf Broadcast with full anticipation to experiencing and contributing to all the different elements of how a production company works.”
