Marci Miller has been promoted to President US at the community. A Miami native with over 20 years of experience in the industry, Marci has spent the last three years at the community as a managing director. She has extensive experience and leadership in integrated advertising campaigns as well as a strong background in strategy, digital, content production, and social media.
In her new role, Marci will be overseeing all US client partnerships, excluding Verizon. From a partnership perspective, Marci will be charged with leading Amazon, Constellation Brands, Mondelez, Norwegian Cruise Line, Volkswagen, and others. She’ll also be tasked with new business growth in the US. Ben Bittman, EVP and Managing Director, will continue to oversee our Verizon partnership.
“Marci really stands for everything Jose and I hoped for when we started the community almost 21 years ago,” said Joaquín Molla, Global CCO and Founder. “She’s someone who knows the power of ideas and really believes in them. Someone who understands the industry and us as an agency. She fights the good fight every day for what our name stands for and how we can create connections and build communities with great work.”
“As we continue to grow and scale our business, there is no better leader than Marci,” said Luis Montero, CEO. “She has the right blend of humanity and ambition for great work and is a great partner to our clients and our community. Over the past 3 years, I’ve had the privilege of seeing her leadership, ingenuity, and smarts firsthand. She knows how to lead a healthy business while always putting the work first. And from helping grow our business across clients like Constellation Brands and Mondelez, to leading and winning new business from partners like Amazon and Volkswagen, I know she is someone who will continue to lead us and help us learn and grow on a daily basis.”
Prior to joining the community, Marci spent over 14 years at Crispin Porter + Bogusky, where she last served as VP, Group Account Director & Account Service Lead. Throughout her career at CP+B, Miller also held the roles of VP, Director, Knowledge & Development and VP, Managing Supervisor, working with clients like Burger King and Best Buy. Prior to CP+B, Miller worked as a Content Supervisor at Tinsley Advertising.
“These last few years have been some of my most fulfilling—wins, challenges, losses, celebrations, amazing creativity, and so much more,” said Marci Miller, President US. “I couldn’t be prouder and more excited to take this next step with the community. Every day I’m surrounded by the brightest stars. The most interesting people, creative ideas and truly special client partners. Even in just a few years, the community has experienced so much growth, and I’m excited to dive in and get working on our future.”
From a larger leadership perspective at the community, with Marci’s elevation, Luis Montero will take on the role of CEO. Luis joined the community in 2013 and has continuously been a strong advocate for culturally reflective brand-building while helping the agency secure long-term partnerships. In his new role, Luis will continue to focus on our global community, including the US and LATAM.
As President US, Marci steps in to round out our new regional structure across five business units within the US and LATAM laddering up to Luis—with Marci as President US; Julieta Rey as VP and Managing Director for la comunidad in LATAM; Laurie Malaga as EVP and Head of Integrated Production for our production powerhouse, Makers Lab; the Global Samsung business; and, as mentioned above, Ben Bittman as EVP and Managing Director, overseeing Verizon.
Marci’s new role is effective immediately.
