TALENT - CUNNINGHAM, ESCOTT, SLEVIN & DOUGHERTY TALENT AGENCY
I have worked with Genevieve professionally for over 16 years, on the agent side as well as in casting. I was there when she got her VO start with CESD, and our working relationship continued when I went over to the casting side, most notably at Pomann Sound, where she landed her first VO gig with a NY Times spot, only her 6th audition out of the gate her first week. While her talent is evident with the texture and versatility in her voice, so too is she without a doubt one of the nicest people I’ve ever met, she has been a consummate professional in the duration of our relationship. She has always had an innate knack of giving clients what they need while never compromising her integrity. Her level of talent, gratitude and professionalism is enough to make anyone want to work with her.

VERIZON WIRELESS RADIO COMMERCIALS - HILL HOLIDAY AD AGENCY
We worked with Gen for about 4 years when she was the female voice of Verizon Wireless. She's an extremely talented and sweet VO artist who made our jobs as the agency folks easy. Gen took direction well and gave us the range of takes we needed without skipping a beat - you want a second taken off the read, done - you want a different voice, done! It was our pleasure working with with her and we wish her the best of luck!

COMMERCIALS - J. WALTER THOMPSON AD AGENCY
Genevieve's voice is unique, reflecting the warmth and heart that is her own. Always a pleasure to work with, I would give her direction and it was her job to comprehend what the creatives really wanted. Not always an easy task. She never disappointed...and gave back better.

PROMOS - LIFETIME NETWORK FOR WOMEN
I've had the pleasure to work with Genevieve on many voice over occasions as she was one of a handful of voice over actors for the promos for Lifetime Network for a couple years. Even when the projects seem crazy and the dead lines are tight, she is always a pleasure to work with. She's upbeat and ready to go and truly cares about the end result. I love that about her!!!

ACTOR IN SHORT FILM - DAILY SHOW WITH JON STEWART
I was casting a short film I made and auditioned many actresses none of whom came even close to what Genevieve Hannon clearly had to offer. Her talent and enthusiasm was immediately apparent. She came to the audition fully prepared and with an understanding of the material that went beyond what can normally be hoped for let alone expected. Despite very long days and many scenes taking place outside in cold, often rainy weather, Genevieve was a constant source of positivity and professionalism on the set. When your production is made smoother thanks to the full support of the actors, you know those are actors you are fortunate to be working with. Genevieve Hannon is undoubtedly one of those actors. If she wasn't immediately perfect in her scene, she asked the right questions and did the necessary preparation to always come back with the performance I was looking for. Her role called for some extremely dry humor which is often difficult to grasp let alone perform but we had no such difficulties with Genevieve. And when I called for "frightened" or "angry" or "angrier" or "a little less frightened" she was always able to ignore how ridiculous I was being and quickly find that sweet spot. After shooting wrapped in the Catskill Mountains in upstate New York, Genevieve returned to New York City. When I called that same night to ask her to make the two-and-a-half hour drive back the next morning for one last shot, she didn't hesitate and showed up with her trademark smile ready to give me the three seconds I needed. Looking back on it I realize the gesture was not just extraordinary but utterly unique. And of course she nailed it. Then I bought her lunch. It was a really long drive. Genevieve Hannon doesn't just go above and beyond, she's already there when she shows up and she's there the whole time you're working with her. Hire this woman!

COMMERCIALS - POMANN SOUND NYC
While working at Pomann Sound Recording Studio in NYC, a girl once asked me what I thought of Genevieve Hannon. The question came out of nowhere, so before answering I asked her, "Why?" She said, "She just seems too good to be true!" I said, "Let me tell you a little story about Genevieve. A couple of months ago, after booking a handful of jobs here, Genevieve came into the studio and asked me and the casting director if we could track down a few of her spots and put them onto a tape for her for a demo reel. This couldn't have taken either of us more than 10 minutes of our time and was pretty much something we could do in our sleep. We made her the tape and seemingly the very next day we received a HAND-WRITTEN note from her thanking us. Within the note, she said, "It's great that we're not just doing business here, but also building friendships." And at the end of the note she wrote, "Call me if too much time goes by and we don't see each other." I said to the girl, "Who does that?!? Nobody, that's who! Trust me, Genevieve is for real, and is 100% genuine."
