Figliulo&Partners (F&P) has hired Scott Vitrone as partner and chief creative officer. Becoming F&P’s sixth partner, Vitrone will lead the agency’s creative vision and report directly to founding partner and CEO Mark Figliulo.
During his career, Vitrone has held group and executive creative director positions in New York at Barton F. Graf 9000, TBWA\Chiat\Day, Wieden + Kennedy and Y&R. Winner of an Emmy and other industry awards, Vitrone helped shape work for a wide range of clients, including Nike, ESPN, Delta Airlines, Heineken, Target, Virgin Atlantic, Land Rover, Miller Brewing Company, Sprint and FedEx.
Career highlights include the celebrated “Whatever’s Comfortable” campaign for Southern Comfort at Wieden + Kennedy and “Experience the Rainbow” for Skittles at TBWA\Chiat\Day, a campaign that is still running today.
Vitrone’s hiring follows the F&P’s launch of its new media and communications planning unit, led by former Wieden + Kennedy group media director, Ryan Haskins, and comes off the back of a series of new business wins for the agency.
“I’ve always wanted to work with Scott and I am really pleased to welcome him as a partner at F&P,” said Figliulo. “It’s an exciting time for the agency right now. We placed a bet from day one on being the best home for talent, so with Scott’s reputation and caliber, he’ll fit right in.”
Vitrone said, “I admire the spirit of generosity and transparency that Mark and the partners have created at F&P. It’s a young, independent agency that’s clearly going places. I’m excited to get cracking and help shape the agency’s future.”
