Advertising / marketing powerhouse…
Creative perpetual motion machine…
That’s Doug Finelli.
When it comes to harnessing the power of story in the service of building brands – Doug is your man.
A master at utilizing the power of story to captivate, engage and convince, Doug creates narratives that sell products, drive business, and build brand equity for such clients as Las Vegas Tourism (What Happens Here, Stays in Here), Samsung, Microsoft, Crystal Geyser, Dick’s Sporting Goods, BMW, Mercedes-Benz, Allegiant Airlines, and countless others.
During the course of his career, Doug has served as Executive Creative Director and lead creative at agencies such as Publicis, Dentsu, RPA, David & Goliath, Tierney /DeGregorio, The Designory, R&R Partners, The Woo Agency, and Nice & Company.
Doug has even practiced the art of storytelling in movies, having written and directed the feature film "My Best Friend's Wife" starring John Stamos. AND believe it or not, he’s also fun (and funny) to be around having been an accomplished comedian with stints at the Improv L.A. (stand-up), doing sketch comedy with The Groundlings, and to great acclaim throughout his advertising career.
If that weren’t enough, Doug’s awards include:
• Cannes Lion
• National American Advertising Award (ADDY)
• Communication Arts (CA)
• Association of Independent Commercial Producers (AICP)
Dirty little secret - Doug was born and raised in New Jersey, but if you ask him about it, the only reply you’re likely to get is “fuhgeddaboudit.”
