- CULVER CITY, Calif.
Sara Bamossy and Marisstella Marinkovic have been named co-CEOs of Culver City-based Pitch, part of the indie agency network Project Worldwide. Bamossy and Marinkovic are being reunited at Pitch after previously partnering together for seven years at Saatchi & Saatchi as a team producing work recognized by Cannes Lions, Effies, and Jay Chiat Awards.
Bamossy has been with Pitch since 2014 when she arrived as chief strategy officer. Marinkovic is joining the agency from INNOCEAN USA where she served as SVP, managing director since 2013.
Bamossy’s strategic background has transformed the way Pitch does business, driving the agency’s philosophy, “Return on Creativity.” Since joining, she has led strategy across all accounts, including current clients Westfield, Roche, Microsoft,
Burger King, and Public Storage.
During Marinkovic’s tenure at INNOCEAN USA, she led Hyundai to significant increases in brand affinity and brand demand across national, digital, and retail efforts. Highlights of her work include beating out
fan-favorite brands like Doritos to be ranked #1 on USA Today’s Ad Meter for Super Bowl L, increasing Hyundai’s social engagement, and revitalizing its dealer association program.
Pitch announces the appointment of Bamossy and Marinkovic almost halfway through its 10th year in business. Founded in 2008 by Jon Banks, Pitch passed the CEO title on to Rachel Spiegelman at the beginning of 2017. Spiegelman left earlier this year to pursue other opportunities, but the agency has continued to grow under the leadership of an executive strategic and creative team. Bamossy and Marinkovic as co-CEOs will make the agency’s operations more efficient as Pitch continues to expand its client base and build out its capabilities.
Pitch serves as a strategic and creative agency for clients including Westfield, Roche, Burger King, Tim Hortons, Microsoft, Konami, Public Storage, Quicken, and San Manuel Casino.
