The publicity vet logged 12 years as senior director of publicity at NBC, overseeing campaigns for late night programs including “Late Night with Conan O’Brien” and “SNL.” He then transitioned to production in the late night space, serving as one of the original segment producers on “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.”

ID topper Mara Buxbaum added: “Marc’s strong combination of creativity and forward-thinking communications expertise perfectly meshes with our approach. He will be working across multiple departments including TV, Film, Talent, Brands, Digital and Creative Strategies.”
