The new guy.

Mangos, a full-service Philadelphia advertising agency, is excited to announce the hiring of Steve Merino as Associate Creative Director.

Steve brings over a decade of experience to Mangos, from traditional advertising campaigns to integrated digital media strategies, including running his own ad agency, seventy7, for over five years.

A copywriter by trade, Steve specializes in all aspects of the creative process—from new business research and positioning, to rebranding and creative campaign development. Previously, Steve worked as Creative Director at Aloysius, Butler and Clark in Wilmington, Delaware and Associate Creative Director at Diccicco Battista in Conshohocken, PA.

Over the years, he has written and produced Addy-winning television campaigns, launched new products and brands, and crafted social media campaigns for clients such as Susquehanna Bank, The Flower Show, Upromise and Canal’s Liquors.

In his role as Associate Creative Director, he will help the creative department come up with the ideas that will garner attention for clients like Lehigh Valley Health Network, Firstrust Bank and Liberty Sport, to name a few.

According to Justin Moll, Creative Director at Mangos, “Steve is a great conceptual thinker and an amazing writer. He’s a big addition to our creative team. But mostly, I’m excited to have another bearded guy wearing a flannel around these parts.”

Steve has an Advertising/Communications degree with honors from Penn State University.
