Circus Maximus has hired Alaina Andreozzi as senior account director, Ryan Kutscher, Circus Maximus’ founder and chief creative officer announced today. Andreozzi will oversee the entire Circus Maximus client portfolio—which includes the P&G/Gillette, Mack Weldon and Fazer NORDI chocolate accounts—and partner closely with the leadership team on new business development.
“Hiring gives me agita, because It’s extremely rare to find the combination of seasoned experience and entrepreneurial ambition needed to face the challenges facing DNVBs, startups, and modern Fortune 500s the way Circus Maximus does,” said Kutscher. “Alaina has not only that special combo but she also shares our vision for the direction of the business and brings a warmth and charisma along with her talent and drive. She’s a much-needed addition to our growing team.”
Andreozzi comes to Circus Maximus from R/GA, where she handled the Nike, Girl Scouts, UNIQLO, ESPN, Samsung US & Global and Coty accounts. During her time there, she collaborated with The Muse, Ladies Get Paid, Reply.ai, PayScale and Cindy Gallop on a campaign for Equal Pay Day called Ask For A Raise, which won the Cannes Lions Bronze, MMA Smarties Gold, D&AD Impact Graphite Pencil (Silver), Shorty Awards Winner (Audience Honor) and Athena Ad awards. She also worked with AdCouncil on a campaign to increase voter turnout called GoVoteBot - a Facebook messenger bot that educate voters on how and where to vote. She spent nearly four years at the agency working her way up from account manager to management supervisor.
Before R/GA, she spent about three years at J. Walter Thompson Worldwide (JWT) working on Rolex US & Global and Shelter Pet Project. Andreozzi was selected as a rising star at JWT to participate in the second U.S. Google Squared program, an award-winning digital marketing course focused on empowering digitally skilled industry leaders. Through completion of this program, participants reimagine their approach to learning, handling change and becoming members of creative and efficient teams.
Despite having worked at larger agencies, Andreozzi has always found her way to smaller teams and led projects for causes she feels passionate about like voter turnout, equal pay and women’s rights. Throughout her career, she has worked on accounts ranging from multibillion dollar corporations such as Samsung and Rolex to smaller nonprofits such as Ad Council.
“Circus Maximus is an agency that is committed to innovation in a changing industry, staying lean, moving quickly and developing close relationships with clients,” added Andreozzi. “It’s the perfect agency for me.
