The interactive agency has tapped Graham Budd as director of business development, along with five other new employees.

Toronto-based interactive agency Secret Location has hired Graham Budd (pictured) as director of business development, and hired on five new employees to meet the demands of business growth over the last six months.

Budd, who comes over from Cue Digital Media, where he handled branded entertainment, will develop new business opportunities at Secret Location, while working with the agency’s existing broadcast, brand and agency clients.

New hires include developers Adam Drake, Josh Mandricks and Paul Stodolak, producer Kathryn Rawson and designer Jory Kruspe.

Secret Location was recently nominated for a Digital Emmy for Endgame Interactive, a transmedia episode (created to extend the Showcase drama Endgame online) in which the user dictates the sequence of events. Endgame Interactive also won Gold at last year’s AtoMiC Awards.
