Kevin JusticeCo-Chief Executive Officer
Kevin started his career with a strong creative foundation that led him to becoming an early adopter of digital media and interactive. With over 30 years of related experience, he is 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 mixing creativity and technology extends to the team through regular training and creative lunch sessions on how to integrate technology to empower marketing. The only technology he hasn’t adopted is progressive lenses, although peering over the top of his glasses gives him that bookishly smart look.
Paul PastrickEVP | Chief Financial Officer | 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 MorfopoulosCo-Chief Executive Officer
Andy is a person of many interests, but one thing he has a real passion for is growing brands. As the spokesperson for many of our agency’s growing relationships, he understands leadership at its best comes from great collaboration and being a good listener who taps into consumer needs and client’s desires. His 20 years in agency leadership has given shoppers reasons to crunch Blue Diamond Almonds, get handy with Black & Decker and Quaker State and live a little with Chivas Regal and Coca-Cola. He takes great interest in his wife’s Pilates studio, jazz music, tennis, drumming and drinking wine.
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. Virginia’s extensive client experience spans across category lines and includes Blue Diamond Almonds, Sutter Home, Dole, Campbell’s, Zebra Pen, Tylenol, Comcast and more. Her penchant for success shines through with hard work, dedication and enthusiasm. Lots of enthusiasm. Something you may not know about Virginia is that she is a self-proclaimed Turophile, in other words, a cheese snob. As she always says, “the best things in life are cheese.”
Maureen ColleyDirector of 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.
Patti CeramiAccount Director
Patti is uber private about her online presence, so we think this avatar is the best way to capture her personality (although rumor has it that she may actually be ‘on the lam’). She started her career in the motion picture industry, living in Los Angeles for 9 years, before returning to her roots in PA where she worked on various CPG accounts such as M&M Mars/Blue Diamond Almonds and Dole. Patti has an adventurous spirit and loves to try new things. Her passions are traveling and exploring, experiencing other cultures and history, as well as camping. She’s also a bit of a TV junkie.
Emma AndersonContent Marketing Manager
Emma’s a meticulous and details-driven creative with a passion for storytelling. As Content Marketing Manager, her days in the office are spent brainstorming smart content strategies, crafting compelling copy, and keeping a pulse on the latest social media trends. She’s a stickler for grammar (Oxford commas included). In her spare time, you can find her binging true crime podcasts, recreating her favorite food bloggers’ recipes, or out on the run. Meet her and you’re bound to hear a story or two—or ten about her beloved Black Lab puppy, Millie.
Christian ClarkWeb Developer
Christian’s passion for computers and technology serve him well in his role, as he hopes to someday become a data analyst. In the office, he helps us with all things tech by updating website features and navigating the world of ecommerce. He also enjoys reading, hiking, and long walks on the beach.
Diane GuadagnaOffice Manager
Diane is the glue that holds this office together. She makes sure our finances are always “accounted” for (pun intended). Diane graduated with a BS in Business Administration/Marketing from Wilkes University, and owned and operated her own business for 9 years. Diane officially joined the Ignite2X team after working at an accounting firm for several years. She is a proud cat owner to Tigger, Tony and Cleo. Diane loves cooking, decorating, and spending time with her newly blended family which includes her husband Mark, 4 adult children and their significant others, and grand dogs!
Sarah HershGraphic Designer
When the topic is creativity and originality, Sarah’s name always comes to mind. She is a graduate of Kutztown University with a bachelor’s degree in Graphic and Interactive Design. As a Graphic Designer, she spends her time developing artistic content and creating new and exciting visuals for clients. Sarah’s a hot sauce connoisseur and will put it on just about anything to spice things up! In her spare time, you can find her jamming out to her favorite music at a concert, tending to her collection of house plants, or playing with her adorable dog, Koda.
Molly ManchesterSenior Account Executive
If you ever spot baked goods around the office, chances are, Molly made them. Molly has an eye for detail, program planning, time management, and organization. As an account executive, Molly implements tactical execution and supports client management. Molly enjoys working in the food space, and collaborating with her mentors on growing agency accounts. She has the cleanest desk in the office and helps us practice our French pronunciations. In her free time, she loves learning about all things fitness, cooking, and playing with her dog, Nanook.
Scott MariSenior Web Application Developer
Scott has worked as a developer at companies large and small in major cities including Philadelphia and New York. In the agency, he is responsible for web development, ecommerce websites and IT infrastructure. Scott also estimates web development and oversees desktop support. He loves HBO, drawing, and making furniture, and once aspired to be a modern medical illustrator — just like Leonardo Da Vinci. In the office, he holds the record for most cups of coffee consumed in an 8-hour workday. Very impressive, Scott!
Josh ShuckJr. Account Executive
If you are looking to try something new and exciting, ask Josh to tag along. He is a graduate of DeSales University with a bachelor’s degree in Marketing. As a Jr. Account Executive, Josh develops and implements innovative strategies to attract new consumers and provides clients with support and marketing insights. When he’s not rooting for the Eagles, you can usually find Josh appreciating nature on a hike, traveling around the globe, or listening to live music with a delicious cocktail in hand.
Suzanne StiancheSenior Account Executive
If you are seeking marketing expertise, look no further than Suzanne. With more than a decade of experience working with a Fortune 500 company, she knows all the ins and outs of marketing and can handle any hurdle that comes her way. Suzanne has a bachelor’s degree from Moravian University and an MBA from Kutztown University. In her downtime, Suzanne can be found making connections and meeting new people, spending time on a beach with a good book, or volunteering to help her community.
Raymond StivalaInteractive Solutions/Project Manager
With a background in web/multimedia development and project management, it’s no wonder Raymond makes the perfect Interactive Solutions/Project Manager. Before joining our team, Raymond created interactive displays at a museum, and developed and project managed various large scale web site projects. In his spare time he can be found hiking and biking the great outdoors or watching one of the movies from his collection. He also loves flying his drone through the sky—while he stands firmly on the ground.
Kim TaylorProduction Manager / Client Services
With a keen eye for detail, Kim is masterful at carrying a project from start to finish. Kim handles client services for Blue Diamond. In addition to production and estimation requests, she is also responsible for sourcing printer and vendor management services. She is a proud mom of two boys that she looks up to – way up – both being over 6’3″. She is skilled in the kitchen and loves trying new recipes or making her own, and her two dogs are always hoping something gets dropped on the floor. When she’s not in the kitchen, she enjoys the great outdoors, whether it’s kayaking, bicycling, or swimming.
