Salt Lake City, UT — Global creative collective Thinkingbox has announced the promotion of Corey Hankey to Managing Director of its Salt Lake City office. In this role, he will manage operations for the expanding western market, and be responsible for continuing to build the company and support client partnerships, further establishing Thinkingbox as a premier destination for talent, while creating a culture that delivers both amazing work and a great work/life balance.
Hankey has been with the business for 13 years, progressing from developer at Welikesmall, which was acquired by Thinkingbox in early 2020, to the leadership team. During his tenure he has held the roles of Director of Development, Technical Producer, Executive Producer, and most recently Director of Client Services.
Hankey’s experience gives him the ability to understand each unique situation and empower the extended Thinkingbox teams to find the right solution.
“I’ve been given every opportunity to climb the proverbial “ladder” by wearing a variety of hats. That variety allowed me to grow in the areas that I was the strongest and learn from my mistakes. I’ve come up with the organization and have truly learned how to find the perfect balance between craft and curiosity to empower teams to deliver exceptional work for our clients,” said Hankey.
“We are thrilled to watch Corey move into his new role as Managing Director. Since expanding our presence to SLC in early 2020, the importance of strong leaders in the market has been imperative to Thinkingbox’s success,” said Amir Sahba, CEO, Thinkingbox.
Hankey has a BFA, New Media Design and Imaging from Rochester Institute of Technology.
