June 10, 2016/Minneapolis, MN – Adventure™ Advertising, a full-service marketing agency with offices in Minneapolis, St. Cloud and Brainerd, announces the promotion of Creative Strategist Gina Nacey to the position of President and Equity Partner, effective immediately.
Nacey has been instrumental in Adventure’s business since joining the agency in 2008, developing Adventure’s staff, client base and creative offering. The result has been hundreds of advertising awards, the opening of a St. Cloud office within the first year of her tenure, and expanding into Minneapolis in early 2015.
In her new role, Nacey will lead Adventure’s creative and account strategy, as well as shape overall business direction in conjunction with Adventure’s founder and CEO, Scott Mitchell.
“Gina’s influence and contributions to Adventure’s success are evident to everyone who’s interacted with our agency,” Mitchell said. “Her drive, strategic thinking and energy are infectious, and our business wouldn’t be where it is today without her. I’m thrilled to announce her new role and look forward to working with Gina to continue growing Adventure in the months and years ahead.”
“I’m so excited about Adventure’s future and humbled to be in a position to shape our direction and growth,” Nacey said. “The agency has great momentum right now and it’s because our incredible staff is so passionate about doing exceptional work for our clients. I look forward to building on that energy and fostering those relationships as we move forward.”
Nacey’s branding experience spans 20 years, including receiving the American Advertising Federation’s (AAF) Silver Medal for Achievement in Advertising. A former adjunct advertising instructor at St. Cloud Technical College, Nacey is also a past member of the AAF’s Council of Governors and currently serves on the National American Advertising Awards Committee.
Founded in 2005, Adventure Advertising has seen tremendous growth in the past year, adding the Minnesota Zoo, Hatteras Yachts, Chamois Butt’r, Kinetic, Beaver Island Brewing and, most recently, North Dakota State College of Science, to its portfolio of clients that also includes UnitedHealthcare Children’s Foundation and Johnson Outdoors, among others. The agency combines senior-level experience and entrepreneurial energy to deliver award-winning campaigns for national and regional brands.
