Kevin Justice

Co-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 Pastrick

EVP | 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 Morfopoulos

Co-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 Porcino

Creative 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 Colley

Director 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 Cerami

Account 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.

A graduate of DeSales University with a degree in marketing, Jessica is curious by nature, and a proven problem solver, (which explains her interest in puzzles of all kinds). Jessica has worked in the fast-paced fashion and beauty categories in both Chicago and New York City, where she was also able to participate in the ever-changing foodie scene, and observe the cultural influences that shape consumer behavior among younger adults. Luckily for our clients,  Jess brings her skills and informed POV to every project.

Raymond Stivala

Interactive 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 Taylor

Production 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.
