Mistress promoted Ben Beale to associate creative director in its Los Angeles office, up from creative director. In addition, Mistress hired Rory Forrest, as an associate creative director at
Mistress.tech, based out of the Hamburg, Germany office. Mistress.tech focuses on creating software and technological marketing platforms for brands. Forrest and Beale previously worked together as a
creative team at Grey London, working on brands like Lucozade and Macleans. Beale's recent work with Mistress includes VH1's "Naked Dating" and leading the agency's PayPal business. "Rory and Ben are
two of the most unconventional and inspiring creative directors we've ever come across," said Scoot Harris, partner at Mistress. "They're as much entrepreneurs and brand builders as they are
creatives. The impact of their work on our clients' business has been extraordinary."
