MEET THE TEAM

We’re a mix of Madison Avenue veterans and young marketing pros who collaborate in an environment that encourages audacious thinking. One where passionate, creative types and control freaks come together with a single-minded purpose. We love what we do—here’s who’s who.

Rick Chiorando
Chief Executive Officer

Rick, who directs all facets of the creative process – and still believes a good idea should start on a napkin – demands that his team hammer out a concept first, to avoid the trap of letting execution drive strategy.

Eva LaMere
President

Known for her boundless energy and relentless pursuit of perfection… To Eva, the client relationship is paramount and her inability to be 100% satisfied, contagious (well, almost).

Sandra Drucker
Chief Financial Officer

Sandra believes that the world revolves around relationships and she strives to create them with clients, vendors and associates.

Lisa Liebman
Vice President, Managing Director

Our boxing, Jaws-quoting Managing Director Lisa loves nothing more than punching out an unstoppable brand strategy or never-before-seen marketing strategy for clients big and small.

For Carolyn, the client comes first. She takes pride in developing long-lasting client relationships and working hard to guarantee accounts run smoothly.

Jennifer Forgét
Vice President, Client Engagement

Jennifer lets her creativity run free when it comes to the latest strategy for her clients’ campaigns as well as in the kitchen, where she whips up delectable eats after hours.

Creative Operations Director

Sallianne brings more than 18 years of experience to her role at Austin & Williams, where she directs all aspects of our on-premise lettershop.

Sheira Rosenberg

Jessica Ford
Account Supervisor

A self-proclaimed “ultimate consumer,” Jessica uses her penchant for advertising and team spirit to her clients’ advantage, keeping projects on message and delivered on time.

Teresa Pelio
Account Supervisor

Ever the social butterfly, helping clients and collaborating with colleagues comes naturally to Teresa, who readily admits that’s she far less cool than her dog, Chester.

Andrea Saccaro
Assistant Account Executive

When not delivering measurable results to her clients, Andrea can be found in the kitchen baking themed desserts or combing record stores for albums to add to her collection.

Barbara Esposito
Vice President, Communications Strategist

Whether it’s print, online or over the air, Barbara is one woman who is never at a loss for words: fortunately, they’re usually the right ones.

Bryan Hynes

The agency’s creative director, Bryan loves creating and performing, whether it’s in a conference room presenting a new campaign for a client or on stage with a bona fide rock band.

Director of Production Services

Henry offers results-oriented, creative project planning supported by years of experience in print, direct mail, signage, packaging, trade show exhibits and special events staging.

Sean Cooke
Art Director

An illustrator who loves creating something from nothing, Sean enjoys taking long walks, rocking out to David Bowie, and anything Buffalo-chicken flavored.

Rob Drucker
Senior Art Director

Rob works hard, plays hard and trains hard—at the ever-changing field of advertising, with his two children and at CrossFit, respectively.

Erica Brown
Integrated Media Supervisor

When Erica’s not strategizing for our clients, she’s at home with her two daughters enjoying Disney princess movies, reenacting Disney princess scenes and singing/dancing along to Disney princess songs (which she secretly loves)!

Andrew Catalano
Chief Digital Officer

The 1990s Pokemon craze opened up a world of opportunity – and a career in online marketing – for former toy store owner Andrew.

Rita is an organizational powerhouse whose detail-oriented mindset makes her ideally suited for her role as Media Coordinator – as she juggles multiple, fast-approaching deadlines with ease.

Kathy Spilker
Administrative Assistant

When visitors come to Austin & Williams’ headquarters, they’re first greeted by the smile of Kathy, our front desk maven and the person who keeps things running at A&W. Want to know what’s really going on? Then you know to ask her.

Bruiser
A&W's BFFF

Bruiser sleeps a lot. Eats a lot. Therefore, poops a lot. He’s great with people, very rarely barks or bites (except for a few clients). Depending on the day, he will shake, sit, stay and roll over when offered food.

Ken Greenberg
Founder

Ken started Austin & Williams with William Pesce in 1992. He was the creator of our agency’s “brand/sell” philosophy and keeper of the results-focused approach that has driven our growth since the very beginning.
