Strike Media’s Keir Waller Shortlisted for Rising Star at Screen Awards 2017

Strike Media are pleased to announce that their Account Manager, Keir Waller, has been Shortlisted for the Screen Awards 2017 ‘Rising Star’ Award. Keir joins a number of candidates, with the winner being announced at The Screen Awards 2017 on 30th November.


Screen Awards describe the Rising Star Award as recognising “…the rising stars in the world of distribution, marketing, publicity or exhibition, talented executives who will rise to the top of their profession and the film community in the years to come.”


This inclusion in the ‘Rising Star’ Shortlist follows Keir’s recent promotion, who was promoted to Account Manager last month. Keir joined Strike Media in July 2017 as a Senior Account Executive but will now will work in a more managerial role, supporting the MD & Founder Wez Merchant, with two new junior members also joining the team, Molly Goring and Zoe Osborne taking the team to seven.


MD & Founder, Wez Merchant, has expressed his delight in having one of his team shortlisted as a ‘Rising Star’. “We’re delighted with the news that Keir’s on the ‘Rising Star’ Shortlist. The Screen Awards are one of the most prestigious awards in our industry and it’s fantastic that they have recognised his efforts.  We have a youthful, vibrant, intelligent, resourceful and expanding team at Strike Media and Keir’s nomination reflects how the company is going from strength to strength.”


It has been a great few weeks for Strike Media, who have recently been appointed by Rakuten TV for their UK Corporate & Consumer PR. Other clients include The Movie Partnership, Paramount Pictures UK, My Film Club and Pop Up Screens.
