JEREMY VILLANO

Hello.

 
IMG_1025.jpg

I'm Jeremy. I develop strategies and launch new brands, products and services that grow companies.

An experienced digital and marketing executive, I've led strategy, brand and program management teams for Fortune 100 companies, startups and global creative organizations. I've helped numerous brands grow by embracing emerging opportunities including Google, Nike, IBM, American Express, the NFL, GE, Ogilvy & Mather, and News Corp.

Currently, I'm developing the brand experience strategy for a leading challenger accounting firm to the Big 4. I'm also crafting the new brand strategy for one of the top mid-market cybersecurity companies.

But the thread that runs through everything I do is I love working with good people, on ambitious goals, and aiming for something great.

AJAX GENERAL, INC.

I'm the owner of Ajax General, a strategic consultancy and product incubator. We provide innovation services for ambitious brands, agencies and entrepreneurs seeking growth in a disrupted world.

We can scale our services from a single advisor (Me!), to a 20+ person full-stack integrated project team. Ajax can take your idea from just an inkling to market launch, or help anywhere in between. (We can also help get the operating team in place, if desired.)

PROSPECT HEIGHTS COMMUNITY FARM

Despite growing up with a black thumb, I've worked really hard learning to kill plants less frequently. Over time I've developed a minor gardening obsession, filling our apartment with terra-cotta'd houseplants.  In space-challenged Brooklyn (and at the request of family members) I indulge my horticultural hobby as a volunteer at our local Prospect Heights Community Farm. The garden has come a long way since it was three adjacent abandoned lots 20 years ago.
