I began my career as a sales development & marketing specialist successfully launching and revamping magazines ranging from Forbes to Playboy, Crain’s New York Business to Business Tokyo, and Scientific American Mind to Chief Executive. Then I added special event production and sponsorship sales to my repertoire, first as vice president and founding board member of New York Women’s Agenda, collaborating with renown civic leader Elinor Guggenheimer to increase profit for the Star Breakfast, and then producing CEO-level corporate events. Along the way I served as promotion director, Crain’s New York Business; marketing & events director, Chief Executive Group; sales development consultant, Forbes, Inc.: vice president, Bolde Communications & Public Relations: and sales director, Zen Integrated Marketing. Today, as managing director of Antonacci Marketing & Development, I develop branding, marketing and content presentation strategies that engage audiences, build communities, generate action, and drive revenue for both corporations and nonprofit organizations. Our teams create and manage special events marketing and fundraising campaigns that generate action and income. We also initiate digital makeovers – revamping the branding, design and content for websites and social media platforms – launching www.awny.org in 2013, and www.tech-ops.com in 2014, with a performing arts center website launching in 2015. My portfolio of clients has included Advertising Women of New York, American Express, Canon USA, D.I.S. Consulting, ForbesLife, HANAC, LiveOn-NY (formerly Council of Senior Centers & Services of NYC), South Orange Performing Arts Center, Pilla Creative Marketing, Tech-Ops, Toshiba, TV Guide, Unilever-Dove, and Carl Zeiss. Over the years, I’ve served on seven nonprofit boards including Alliance for Women in Media-NYC, Women’s City Club, New York Women’s Agenda, and The Center for the Advancement of Youth, Family and Community Services. I am also an adjunct adviser and professor at the Gallatin School of Individualized Study, New York University.
