Frank Ginsberg, Founder,Chairman and CEO
Page Six calls Frank Ginsberg an advertising guru. Over the years, a lot of other labels have gotten affixed to him too. Founder. Chairman. Entrepreneur. Icon. Legend. But the one title Frank has always been most comfortable with is the one he started with. Art Director. His singular style, distinguished by its differentiating power, has helped build brands like Purina Cat Chow, U.S. Trust, Financial Times, Thompson Reuters, Enterprise Rent-A-Car, Bacardi and Van Cleef & Arpel. Frank sits on the board of directors of the AAAA Creative Committee, The American Hospital in Paris Foundation, The Acting Company and the Children’s Hearing Institute, which recently honored him with the Jule Styne Humanitarian Award.
Stuart Grau, Chief Strategic Officer
The agency’s thinker-in-chief. And the calmest, most collaborative voice in the day-to-day chaos that is AFG&. In his twin roles as president and lead strategist, Stu brings thought leadership, an innate ability to build on the ideas of others, a let’s-look-before-we-leap attitude, and one of the industry’s deepest understandings of consumer behavior to the table. As the individual most responsible for keeping the agency’s key Purina businesses purring along, you can think of Stu as a herder of cats. A phrase that also perfectly describes his role in corralling all the various talents, energies and egos of AFG& at large.
Joe Petruccio, Co-Chief Creative Officer
In all of advertising today, there are maybe two dozen top creative directors who truly get it. Who give you ideas instead of jargon. Who teach their teams how to be better creative people. Who take a client’s business as seriously as if it were their own. Joe Petruccio is one of those creative directors. A mentor to many, a peer to few, and a partner to all, Joe is also the official artist of Elvis Presley’s Graceland Estate, and his sports blogs, which chronicle the misfortunes of the Mets and the Jets, have been recently profiled in both The New York Times and The Wall Street Journal.
