About me

Enrico has been in the advertising business for the better part of the past 13 years, first as an account and then as a strategist. Prior to that Enrico worked client side, and briefly also as part of the marketing team at Max Mara, one of Italy’s most recognized, global fashion house. After moving to the U.S. and getting his master degree in Mass Communication from VCU Brandcenter, Enrico worked at a number of advertising agencies across Italy, New York City and South Carolina, such as MullenLowe, AKQA, Digitas, Chernoff Newman, PI&C, Barbarian and more recently m:united//McCANN in New York. Over the years Enrico accrued invaluable B2B and B2C client experience, helping brands define their strategic approach to communications, and all the way to final execution. A selection of his most recent client brands includes: Microsoft, Google, essie (by L’Oreal), Panasonic Avionics, Hilton Luxury, Fiat, Kinder Ferrero, Wyndham Hotel Group, Chase Home Lending, Hyundai, Samsung, Alessi, American Express, Delta, Zonin 1821, Nutella, Mohegan Sun, Zillow and many others. Enrico holds a master’s degree in Business and International Marketing from the Dipartimento di Economia Marco Biagi, Italy.

Fan fact about Enrico… from tech clients, to luxury, travel and beyond, Enrico loves to learn deeply about brands and think strategically – which inevitably leads to him buying and trying anything and everything he works on. Ask him about how he got his apartment…
