Chris Mendola Will Continue Leading 180 from the Northeast, Thank You

Yes, there have been sightings of 180 co-founder Chris Mendola in New York City, but that doesn’t mean the exec is setting up shop there. Mendola’s family is from Connecticut, actually, and he moved there to be closer to them. 180 LA/Amsterdam, which counts clients including Sony Electronics, currently has no accounts headquartered in NYC. In a statement, Mendola says, “f we happen to generate business opportunities in New York or any other major city around the world, we would look at expansion to manage those clients. No launch plans for NY at this point.”

Mendola, who started up 180 back 1998 and served as an account director at Chiat\Day New York and W+K Portland/Amsterdam beforehand, adds, “I will continue to oversee all of 180 (Amsterdam and LA) with my partners, splitting my time between offices.”
