MICHAEL ZAMBRELLI, Founder/Chief Creative Officer, is a multidimensional “creative” whose talents go beyond crafting strategic and consumer insights into engaging and compelling strategic brand stories. He's an advertising talent with strong client skills, sharp business instincts and a keen understanding of today’s marketing demands.

Prior to founding Zambrelli + Partners in 1997, Michael worked as a Creative Director for top multinational agencies, including Ogilvy & Mather and Wells Rich Greene.

Michael's written, produced and directed nearly 900 commercials worldwide and is a successful songwriter/lyricist* and photographer**. His creative work has won numerous awards from Effies to Cannes Lions and is characterized by strategic insight, strong image making, a sophisticated use of music and excellent sales and marketing results.

(Notable examples include Pringles’ “Once You Pop” which Newsweek called a "global phenomenon“, Tag Heuer’s “Mind Games” which won a Silver Lion at Cannes and Chuck E. Cheese’s “Real Cool Place”  which made the kids entertainment marketer a “rite of passage” for America’s kids.)

A graduate of Harvard College, Michael serves on the Board of Directors of the Harvard Club of New York and The Eye Bank for Sight Restoration and is a long time supporter of many non-profit and civic organizations in the New York area.
