Launched in July 2019, Westbrook is a cross-platform holding company aimed at executing the Smith family’s global content and commerce business strategy. In addition to the Smiths, film producer Miguel Melendez and venture capitalist Kosaku Yada also signed onto the venture as co-founders. Yada also serves as Westbrook’s CEO, and talent shop Creative Artists Agency’s former head of global client strategy Tera Hanks is president. Prior to his stint at Lyft, Hearn directed global marketing at Google for the brand’s mobile, laptop and wearables division. Before that, he spent more than 10 years at Nike, where he led the football, baseball and training consumer product lines, as well as creating some of the brand’s biggest campaigns including the Nike Women’s Half Marathon and Nike’s NFL partnership. Hearn is part of Adweek’s Innovators Council and Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Council , and also serves as an Adweek executive mentor . At Brandweek last month, Hearn spoke on a panel with Jacksonville Jaguars CMO Julian Duncan about the importance of cultivating a strong personal identity and brand —one that’s rooted in values and purpose that can help guide you throughout your career.
