Greg Bell Signs with Epoch

Venables Bell & Partners co-founder/co-CD and 20-year ad vet Greg Bell is realizing his second career as he’s signed on to the directorial roster of NY/LA/London-based prodco, Epoch Films. Bell left VB&P, which he launched with Paul Venables in 2001, nearly two years ago after a snowboarding accident made him rethink things and “realize life was too short to be in meetings all day.”

During his time at VB&P, Bell helped compile a list of clients including HBO, Audi, Intel, Napster, Barclays, and C0ca-Cola. Regarding his new gig, he says in a statement, “It was an easy choice. Epoch is a world class company with just about the nicest people in the business. I’m truly lucky to get a spot on their roster.” Epoch Films’ managing partner Jerry Solomon adds that despite Bell’s lack of experience in directing, “We signed Greg because he has twenty years of pedigree creative work under his belt.”
