The eye of a designer, the mind of a strategist, the passion of a craftsman. Justin delivers insight, creativity and design that defines and differentiates brands. His bold approach to creative problem solving has been recognized by Graphis, Communication Arts, One Show and more. You’ll find Justin’s work in the permanent collection of the American Institute of Graphic Arts. Away from his desk, he’s probably in his barn, trying to make something run that shouldn’t – while not catching everything on fire.
JOANNE DE MENNA
SVP, Director of Strategy
You know that point in a meeting when someone asks the unexpected question that takes the discussion to a higher level and leads to an unexpected solution? That’s often Joanne. A distinguished creative leader with over 25 years of experience, she has the uncanny ability to make the critical observation which turns a good strategy into a great one. Her focus is on ferreting out the white space that gives brands lots of elbow room to differentiate, grow and thrive. As an American history buff, she is reassured by the contentiousness of our Founding Fathers.
Brand Development Director
In a nutshell, Alex’s career spans strategic marketing, advertising, digital transformation and customer experience development. But this is a guy you can’t cram into a nutshell. His job is to guide CMOs across a shifting landscape, hold a torch aloft for the team, and make it look easy. When the FDA needed a social media panelist, they asked Alex. His proudest moment was serving on a strategic think tank for a Federal Government/White House brand initiative. If you’re looking to ski off-piste, he’s your man.
Principal, Chief Executive Officer
Don’t let the suspenders and bowtie fool you. Bill lettered in wrestling. He also used to race motorcycles. Which helps explain his tenacious commitment to serving the needs of our clients. He sharpened his management and marketing skills at the Business Management Program at the Wharton School of Business. But he also went to art school, which makes for a formidable mix of creative, marketing and business expertise. Giving back is a passion; Bill founded an environmental conservation center in Kenya and is a trustee at University of the Arts.
Principal, Chief Creative Officer
Bradley is the guiding hand of Mangos. He is as clear as he is passionate about creating advertising that surprises, inspires and, most importantly, works brilliantly for our clients. A relentless perfectionist, he looks at clients’ needs from every conceivable angle. Then he scrutinizes the agency’s response until it is honed into a solution that is results-oriented, targeted and effective. He brings our clients over 30 years of experience in advertising and draws on a range of creative, marketing and business savvy to keep Mangos moving forward. Bradley collects and plays vintage saxophones. He’s waiting for that invite to Chris’ Jazz Club.
Experience Strategy Director
Though she is but little, she is fierce. She has to be. As Mangos’ Experience Strategy Director, Brooke oversees all of the strategic digital planning and implementation for all our clients. She looks through the lens of innovation and effectiveness to guide brand-experience creation. A not-nerdy specialist who understands data, omnichannel and personalization, she works side-by-side with every creative team. Somehow, she still finds time to develop best practices, roll out new processes and stay current with ever-changing trends. Ask her about applying UX to her young son.
Says little speaks volumes. Kevin’s expertise lies in distilling complex ideas and marketing strategies into compelling creative ideas that inspire, move and motivate. He believes firmly that while a lot has changed in advertising, the essential stuff hasn’t. “Brands still have a story to tell. And people are still human. All you have to do is connect the two.” Kevin’s film and video work is on permanent display at The Museum of Modern Art in New York. Someday, he will run a sailing charter in the Caribbean.
