Marianna Morello

Manhattan Media is led by CEO Marianna Morello, a marketing and advertising veteran with over three decades of experience. Upon founding her own advertising agency some 25 years ago, Marianna initially focused on print advertising and became the unrivaled leader in the category, delivering unprecedented ROI for blue chip brands as well as direct marketers. Based upon this success and the trust she has built over the years, Marianna and her team have branched out into digital and social media, out-of-home advertising and broadcast television and radio commercials.


Today Manhattan Media manages fully integrated campaigns and collaborates with clients and their internal resources, as well as agencies that lack Manhattan Media’s specific. This has resulted in a broad spectrum of clients that range from established brands, product marketers, and start-ups.


As a recognized marketing industry thought leader, Marianna has served on the Electronic Retailer magazine advisory board, and has written for trade journals that have included Response magazine, DM News, and Electronic Retailer magazine. In addition, she was featured in author Steven Dworman’s book, $12 Billion of Inside Marketing Secrets, as well as Tim Ferris’ Wall Street Journal Bestseller, The 4-Hour Work Week: Escape 9-5, Live Anywhere, and Join the New Rich. She has presented at numerous industry conferences and has been featured on the cover of Response magazine. In 2015 she was inducted into the Direct Response Hall of Fame. You can learn more about Marianna and the agency by visiting our PRESS page.
