Kamla Pande Named Head of Sales at Deckstar, James Grant Group
Kamla Pande has been named head of sales for multi-sector management company Deckstar and the James Grant Group based out of its West Coast office. Pande moves up to the newly-created position after having spent the last two years in charge of custom content initiatives, multi-platform endorsements and product collaborations for JGG’s influencer division. There, she oversaw clients such as Nicole Guerriero, CloeCouture and Cutepolish, and global brands including P&G, L’OREAL and Coca-Cola.
As head of sales, Pande will now oversee group’s entire U.S. division covering music, influencer and acting talent. Brendan Fitzgerald, head of sales for JG Sports USA, will continue to oversee the group’s U.S. sports division.
"Having seen Kamla’s track record of successfully growing our influencer business by triple digits, she was the natural choice to lead the company’s North American expansion through brand partnerships and sales," said Deckstar managing director Matt Colon in a statement.
"I am thrilled to tap into my extensive digital brand experience to drive new partnership opportunities across the rapidly expanding roster of James Grant/Deckstar clients," Pande said in her own statement.
