With more than 20 years of marketing experience̶—both at agencies and on the client-side—Jamie Gallo has built a reputation for his commercial intelligence, pragmatism, and for building and evolving the world's leading brands.
As New York office president, Gallo leverages Wunderman’s sophisticated analytics and data operations to make brands more valuable to consumers. His philosophy centers on deepening connections with individuals in the consumer-brand relationship; this allows the agency to develop modern creative campaigns that are both targeted and effective.
Gallo’s responsibilities include overseeing key Wunderman North America hubs, including Minneapolis and Atlanta. Also reporting to him are the New York operations of Wunderman World Health, digital agency Blast Radius, and consumer engagement firm KBM Group.
Before Wunderman Gallo was executive VP-marketing for the National Basketball Association. There he directed the digital, direct and traditional marketing and brand development for the NBA, WNBA and NBA Development League.
That role followed a 10-year post at TBWA\Chiat\Day, where he sparked the rebirth of the agency’s New York operations by dramatically growing its client roster and revenue, and winning global accounts such as Michelin, Planters, Wheat Thins, Jameson, GSK and Nissan. He also guided the evolution of Absolut Vodka’s iconic advertising, and worked on branding and retail activation for Nextel/Sprint post-merger.
Earlier in his career, Gallo spent time at Merkley Newman Harty (now known as Merkley & Partners), the Blum Network and Messner Vetere Berger McNamee Schmetterer. He began his marketing career in 1990 as a media planner for Ally & Gargano.
