Our Team

Gino Colangelo

Founder and President, Colangelo & Partners 

Gino founded Colangelo & Partners ( in 2006 after spending over 10 years with Dentsu Communications where he pitched and won new business, and conceived and put into play communications strategies for a blue-chip client list that included Siemens, Olympus, Japan Airlines, Finmeccanica, Suntory, Winebow, Mionetto and lots of others. Before Dentsu, Gino spent 10 years in his own retail business, a unique experience in the agency world. Prior to the retail business, Gino spent 2 1⁄2 years in Japan writing copy for an ad agency and writing freelance for travel magazines. He has also lived and studied in Siena, Italy.

Gino’s love of food, wine and spirits has led to C&P’s focus on these ‘worlds of passion.’ Since its founding, C&P has conceived and executed successful integrated communications campaigns for institutional clients and brand marketers including Crus Bourgeois, Diplomatico Rum, Frescobaldi, Ornellaia, Partida Tequila, the Prosecco DOC Consortium, the Sagrantino Consortium, Vinitaly International, Wines of Greece, Wines from Spain, Wines of South Africa and many others.
