Optimus Promotes Jonah Mueller, Emma Jubinski
May 24, 2016 by Screenmag
One at Optimus, the production arm of Optimus, has promoted Jonah Mueller to executive producer and Emma Jubinski to producer. Most recently, Mueller and Jubinski contributed to the growth of the production house as senior producer and associate producer, respectively.
“These promotions are so well deserved,” said One at Optimus EP/Managing Director Lisa Masseur. “Jonah and Emma have played critical roles in the continued expansion and elevation of ONE. From the start, Jonah quickly forged great relationships with our directors and expertly managed technical jobs. He will help us raise ONE up to greater heights and I’m ever thankful that he joined our team and that I can call him our EP. Emma has been line producing larger and more complex productions over the past year, taking on even greater day-to-day responsibilities. Across the board, our clients and directors love working with Jonah and Emma.”
Mueller cut his teeth as an assistant account executive at Laughlin Constable in Chicago. From there, he went to Radar Studios as a PA and worked his way up to producer under a team that included Masseur. He then spent a year freelancing for ONE as a line producer and bidder before being hired full-time last year as a senior producer. Mueller has worked with brands including Amazon, The Chicago Bulls, Kellogg’s, Kimberly Clark, Lincoln Motor Company, McDonald’s, Motorola, Nintendo, Samsung, SC Johnson and many others. Said Mueller, “I guess I’ll just stick to what’s worked for me in the past - when in doubt, smile and nod. Beyond that, I look forward to expanding relationships with our directors and agency friends. 2015 was a great year for ONE, and 2016 is shaping up the same way. As the production landscape continues to transform, I look forward to partnering with clients and agencies on an even wider range of projects.”
Jubinski most recently was an associate producer at ONE. In 2012, she was hired as an assistant producer at the production house, and she began her career as an intern at Optimus in 2011. Jubinski has worked with a wide array of clients including Craftsman, Joe Boxer, Kellogg’s, Kmart, McDonald’s, Orbit, Pedigree, US Bank and Ziploc. About her promotion to producer, she said, “I’m thrilled to take the next step at ONE under the leadership of Lisa and Jonah. The mentorship at Optimus and ONE began the moment I walked through the door, and I’ve been lucky to work alongside a number of incredible teachers along the way. I couldn’t be more humbled to have the opportunity to continue to grow here.”
