Los Angeles-based Andrew Gauthier has landed the executive producer role at BuzzFeed Video. In his new capacity at the company, Gauthier will preside over a team of producers as they create series and short-form video for the site.
In a recent funding round, BuzzFeed gained $50 million from Andreessen Horowitz, after which the company formed BuzzFeed Motion Pictures. Ze Frank heads the division as president, and Gauthier will report to him.
Producer Michael Shamberg and comedian Jordan Peele (of “Key & Peele”) also recently joined the media company to beef up its video offerings. The two will serve as advisers at BuzzFeed Motion Pictures.
Gauthier has worked at BuzzFeed since 2012. Before BuzzFeed, he worked for Mediabistro, having also produced television shows for ESPN, ITV, and A&E.
