Gambino Heads to Halo Group

Since we imagine the industry will be, to quote the great Jules Winnfield in Pulp Fiction, “dead as…fried chicken” this week, let’s at least try to give you some sort of substantial news and tell you that Michael Gambino has joined up with NYC marketing/branding agency The Halo Group as executive creative director. If you’re not sure who Gambino is, the creative spent a good chunk of of his career as VP/creative director at BBDO (on AT&T to Visa to Dell) and as an SVP/group creative director at McCann (on FiOS, co-creating the mama’s boy/cable guy).

Prior to the aforementioned agencies, Gambino worked as an art director at the likes of DDB (on Bud Light and McDonald’s) and DMB&B.
