Commercial production company Ampersand has announced a new partnership with creative management firm MilkToast.

MilkToast is headed by Philip Fox-Mills, Jake Strom, and Dani Ostrowski on the East Coast, and Bryan Farhy and Jen Herrera on the West. The firm will commercially represent Ampersand’s directors bicoastally in the US East and West Coast territories.

This partnership comes to fruition partly due to Phillip Detchmendy (Ampersand’s MD)’s pre-existing relationship with MilkToast’s Philip Fox-Mills and Bryan Farhy. Fox-Mills and Detchmendy worked together in the past at Satellite, while Fahry and Fox-Mills are co-founders of The FireFlies West bicycle charity ride.

Phillip Detchmendy, Managing Director at Ampersand, comments: “MilkToast will represent Ampersand with a singular voice and strategy in the East and West Coast territories, further strengthening the production company’s position in the States. Along with our existing Midwest representation from Chiara Chung and Gunder Kehoe at Chiara Chung Co., Ampersand has among the top sales possible in the US Market. I am thrilled to be working with the MilkToast team on this new partnership.”

Ampersand’s parent company, AOI Pro. is Asia’s leading creative production company. With offices in 8 countries, AOI Pro. produces over 1000 commercials per year and is active in the Film and TV spaces.
