by | Mar 8, 2019

The S3 Agency, the creative agency whose work for brands such as BMW of North America, Eight O’Clock Coffee, and IVI-RMA Global has won national and international awards, announced the hiring of John Ciccio as President. A proven strategic growth leader, Mr. Ciccio will be responsible for spearheading all operations and increasing the agency’s footprint, while preserving the unique culture that fuels the agency’s strong results. In his new role, Mr. Ciccio will report directly to the CEO, Denise Blasevick, who co-founded the agency with CCO Adam Schnitzler in 2001.

Mr. Ciccio has spent the past 15 years working in the healthcare / life sciences industry, where his experience includes analytics, business development, product development, commercial operations, and finance. He most recently served as President of the healthcare professional social network Skipta, which Mr. Ciccio helped lead to exponential growth and eventual sale, resulting in his availability to bring his talents to The S3 Agency.

“2018 represented significant growth for The S3 Agency, thanks to our ability to inform our results-oriented style of fearless creativity with more data than ever before—and we are excited to continue that momentum under John’s leadership,” said Ms. Blasevick. “We welcome adding his business acumen to our creative environment, providing increased career growth opportunities for our team and allowing us to share our services with more great clients.”

The addition of Mr. Ciccio to The S3 Agency’s leadership team will allow Ms. Blasevick and Mr. Schnitzler to focus on their areas of expertise: cultivating and fulfilling the agency’s fearlessly creative vision, respectively.

“The S3 Agency’s commitment to assembling top-tier talent, delivering best-in-class creative work, and providing superior client service has positioned the business for sustained growth and market leadership.  I am extremely excited to join the company at this pivotal inflection point and help lead us to even greater successes.”

Prior to his role as President at Skipta, Mr. Ciccio spent nearly a decade at Adheris Health, initially as Director, Business Analytics & Development and ultimately as Vice President, Commercial.
