CAPS & THE TEAM COMPANIES ADD UNION & LABOR EXPERT JANE NUNEZ TO THEIR ROSTER OF SPECIALISTS

Building on their combined strengths and deep knowledge pools, Nunez’s addition further positions the sister companies as the commercial production community’s go-to authority on labor law and production union agreements.

BURBANK, CA – November 17, 2022 – Today CAPS and The TEAM Companies (TTC), leaders in the commercial production and talent payroll space, announced the hiring of former AICP Labor Executive Jane Nunez. Nunez spent two decades as the AICP’s expert on the DGA, IATSE and Teamster agreements that govern commercials and short-form production. Nunez’s joining these trusted and established advertising & entertainment payroll organizations is a natural fit and comes at an exciting time for both companies.


As of January 1st, 2022, TTC became part of the entertainment payroll, business services and software powerhouse Cast & Crew. TTC joins CAPS, Checks & Balances (Broadway, Regional & Live Theatrical tour payroll) and the commercial payroll side of Media Services to make up the Advertising, Live Entertainment and Short Form Division of Cast & Crew. Together, The TEAM Companies and CAPS offer clients a comprehensive North American payroll solution for union & non-union crew, talent, print models and freelance agency creatives, as well as advertising business affairs and performer union signatory support. Clients also have access to online onboarding & timecard platforms, production accounting software and the full Showbiz software suite.


“After twenty-three years at AICP, this is a big and exciting change for me. I have always respected CAPS and TEAM and the really smart people I have dealt with at both companies. Joining them as they come together in this new Cast & Crew division is great. I look forward to this next step,” says Jane Nunez.


“Jane is a tremendous addition to our collective team of experts. The strength of CAPS and TTC coming together under Cast & Crew positions this division to support every aspect of commercial production from the concept stage through ongoing use of the spot. We have a brilliant group whose industry knowledge is second to none and Jane fits with that perfectly,” notes Greg Smith, President of the Advertising, Live Entertainment and Short Form Division, Cast & Crew.


Jane will work closely with Marketing & Client Services on enhancing the content of established educational programs, materials and software as well as supporting the commercial production payroll operations departments internally and with inquiries from clients.
