Brand success comes from understanding and connecting with people. We’d like to talk to you about connecting your brand with the right people.
meet the leadership team
Kevin comes from a time of paste-ups and mechanicals but was an early adopter of new media. Over 25 years of related experience places him among the top IT strategists and consultants in the region. Kevin’s creative and interactive project list includes notable brands such as Zebra Pen, Mack Trucks, Schering-Plough, Hershey Foods and Just Born. His love for technology extends beyond work, where you’ll find him inventing another useless tool to do yard work. The only technology he hasn’t adopted is progressive lenses, though peering over the top of his glasses gives him that bookishly smart look.
Paul Pastrickevp | chief operations officer
For the 20 years prior to Ignite2X, Paul refined his leadership skills at AT&T. Since the inception of Ignite2X in 2007, his wisdom lies in bringing all factors together to create ideal production processes. Simply put, he works with the best staff (his words) to exceed client objectives. Paul is always bringing teams together to achieve one goal, whether the at-work team or the many sports teams he’s coached over the years. Paul is a die-hard Pittsburgh sports fanatic and Yankee fan and enjoys hittin’ the weights at the gym. When not waving a terrible towel, he’s spending time with his family and probably wearing a shirt made out of bamboo.
Andy Morfopouloschief executive officer
Andy is always up for a chat on just about any topic, but he could talk brands for hours. As much as he likes to talk, he understands leadership comes from listening to consumer needs, client’s desires and Ignite2X’s expertise. He brings these together to create better brands. His 15 years in leadership has given customers reasons to buy everything from Coca-Cola to Quaker State. He takes great interest in his wife's pilates studio, and together they enjoy hanging out with their Cavalier King Charles Spaniel and drinking wine, which is an oil painting waiting to happen.
Maureen Colleydirector, strategic planning
Maureen is a strategic and creative thinker with a natural curiosity about people and what makes them tick. In other words, she’s into insights. She spent many years as an independent consultant, working on campaigns for some of the most respected brands in the world and learning the marketing business inside out. During downtime, she relaxes by doing crossword puzzles and tormenting her family by watching countless hours of sports, even golf. Her favorite restaurant is any place with good craft beer and TVs tuned to ESPN.
Virginia Porcinocreative director
When Virginia enters a room, clients know she’s the Creative Director. She not only glows with creativity, her portfolio backs it up with over 20 years of agency work. Her penchant for success shines through with hard work, dedication and enthusiasm. Lots of enthusiasm. On the work front, she’s a spark plug who occasionally makes everyone in the office fancy espresso drinks. On the home front, she chases her son around the house. But everywhere, she thinks about fancy cheese and colorful patterns.
Stephen Andersonsenior interactive web developer
With a boatload of Philly ad agency experience and an impressive on-again-off-again beard, Steve brings the experience and expertise to the interactive developer side of Ignite2X. He steadily takes on any challenge placed before him … and when the headphones go on, it’s down-to-business time. He hails from the Philly punk/art scene, where his band was mentioned in Time magazine for its contribution to a Frank Sinatra cover album. His paintings have been shown and sold in galleries all over Philly.
