Joe Quattrone, social media strategist and industry leader, was named Vice President, New York for M80, a leading social media marketing agency, and a GroupM company, by Todd Steinman, CEO of M80.
While this role is a new one, Quattrone is not new to M80. In 2010, Quattrone joined M80 as a senior account director, where he was tasked with running multiple brands in industries ranging from Automotive, Finance, Consumer Electronics, and Healthcare. In 2011, he was appointed the lead on the Audi account, where he and his team created the #WantAnR8 campaign, the most successful Twitter marketing campaign of all time, according to Twitter.
“It is with great pride and excitement that I announce Joe’s promotion, with social media impacting every industry there is a need for innovative leaders like Joe who can deliver great insights for brands while raising the profile of the company they work for,” states Steinman.
In his new role, Quattrone will lead business development, spearhead GroupM partner pitches and lead office operations for all of the NY Portfolio Fortune 500 accounts. In addition he is responsible for contributing to agency innovation.
Prior to joining M80, he worked at Venables Bell & Partners as an account manager working on the Audi business, and this is where he first began to develop a career path into social media.
“Social media is an exciting business to be in, and I believe that the work we are doing right now is shaping the future of how brands communicate, and the future is now,” says Quattrone.
