About Me

/Who Am I

Jennaro Villa is senior client manager for the New York office of Landor Associates. He is responsible for executing both strategy and implementation for a range of clients in the following industries: real estate, architectural design, government and non-profit.

Jennaro started at Landor over two years ago working on business development and marketing for the New York office. He has worked for other agencies including Bartle Bogle Hegarty (BBH), Berlin Cameron United, and Merkley+Partners. While at Berlin Cameron, he played a crucial role in the creation of its business development infrastructure. Jennaro also helped the agency win key accounts, including Comcast Business Class and the Wyndham Hotel brands: Super 8, Travelodge and Howard Johnson.

Prior to his role at BBH, Jennaro helped build, launch, and manage, a community website for business development professionals in marketing communications. He has also worked as a business development and marketing consultant for media behemoth MediaCom, as well as for Saffron brand consultants and Johannes Leonardo.

Jennaro received a BS in business administration with a minor in science from Rider University. He has been a speaker for Rider’s Marketing and Advertising Student Association and is a member of DAARSTOC (Developing Administrative Abilities and Resources through the Synergistic Training of Organizational Competencies), a selective executive training organization that improves interpersonal, interviewing, and management skills.

Born and raised in Monmouth County NJ, Jennaro currently resides in Hoboken. In his leisure time, he enjoys health and fitness, snowboarding, wine, and beach volleyball.

It is not very often that you describe one person as your colleague, mentor, and close friend. From the moment I met Jennaro during my internship at Landor Associates, however, I knew he would be all three. Since we first shook hands over a year ago, I have found myself inspired by his work ethic and encouraged by his experience. He has been my go-to person to call whenever I face a difficult decision in my career- whether big or small. He is supportive and has motivated me to go above and beyond anywhere I ever expected to be. His drive and expertise in the industry make him an invaluable asset to anyone that aims to succeed. I credit him with where I am right now, and anywhere I might end up in the future.

Diligent, smart, conscientious, honest, hard-working, uncomplaining, loyal. Ambitious. Wants to learn, improve, refine and understand. Gets it. Takes criticism well. Willingly and cheerfully creates pitch materials, research, PowerPoint presentations, printed books, door openers, leave behinds, prospect dossiers – even when the team ends up not using them. Never rolls his eyes. Never ever whines. Dependable, trustworthy, stays late, comes early, never says “I can’t”. Accepts the absurd. Makes friends with the studio, the broadcast department and account executives. Sticks to the budget. Quiet, unassuming, humble, grateful. Does not take advantage for his own gain. I’ve worked with Jennaro for 2 years and dread the day I lose him. His particular mix of ability and personality is rare and something valuable in this crazy industry.
Morgan Shorey, SVP Strategic Development at FCB
I had the pleasure of working with Jennaro in the New Business Department at Merkley+Partners. He attacked every project no matter its size or importance with the same tireless enthusiasm. His unwaivering dedication was both inspiring and contagious. I found myself rising to meet him on several levels despite my additional years of experience. In the time we worked together, I watched Jennaro learn and grow at an exponential rate and since his departure from our team, he has continued to exceed expectations in the industry. Jennaro would be a wise and welcome addition to any organization or project team.
Suzanne Glickstein, Presentations Manager at Merkley + Partners
