NEW YORK, NY, February 27, 2012 — Building upon a distinguished career leading prominent advertising agencies and accounts, Frank Sampogna has joined Canopy Brand Group as Chairman. Frank will partner with his son, Marc Sampogna, Managing Director, who founded Manhattan-based Canopy in 2008.
“I’m excited to join Marc and his team,” Frank Sampogna commented. “Together we’re growing a branding, digital and design platform that’s really taking hold and bringing new opportunities to our clients, including Pepsico International FoodService, NicePak Products, BioMet and New Jersey Home Services, among others.”
“This business is changing so fast. We believe it’s time to build a new, scalable agency for clients – one that uniquely meets multiple needs. When I met Marc’s team I knew there was something terrific here to build on. The core talent, energy and refreshingly new thinking reflect the heart of a great agency. I could feel it immediately,” Frank added. “Canopy puts me right back in the thick of why I love this business… ideas without borders in all channels.”
“That’s the foundation of Canopy,” Marc Sampogna continued. “Canopy is built on a faster, flexible platform which clients are telling us they want. It’s more engaging and cost effective. Our focus is a breath of fresh air for these challenging times.”
