While attending Baldwin Wallace University, hoping to later pursue a career in business law, Anthony realized that marketing and advertising are much more interesting than the Uniform Commercial Code. He finished with a degree in business administration, marketing, and legal studies. Shortly after shifting his focus to advertising, he started working for the Cleveland Indians. At the Indians, he worked for Corporate Partnerships and Premium Hospitality, primarily servicing clients of the Cleveland Indians Radio Network.
“It was at the Indians that I realized advertising is more about the relationship with the client than anything else. The idea of creating true partnerships and collaborating with clients rather than selling inspired me to explore the industry and make a commitment to learning from the best in the business.”
After working for the Indians, Anthony continued to focus in the radio industry while beginning to explore his interest in digital and social advertising outlets. He spent some time with the CBS Radio (now Entercom) cluster of stations in Cleveland, Ohio: The Fan, WDOK, WQAL, and WNCX.
After being introduced to Todd, Anthony quickly realized that Todd shared the same commitment to building a culture focused on creating value for the clients by doing things the right way. As he continues to grow from his experience, the ability to work alongside the strong team at Mean Joe allows him to develop opportunities for clients with a fresh perspective and understanding of advertising needs.
