Daniela Mancinelli to become CEO at North 6th Agency
PR company North 6th Agency (N6A) has announced a change in leadership that sees the promotions of Daniela Mancinelli to Chief Executive Officer and John Hannaway to Chief Operating Officer, effective January 2021. Ms. Mancinelli replaces N6A founder Matt Rizzetta, who will stay with the company as Executive Chairman, vacating her COO position for Mr. Hannaway to fill. "I have had the privilege of working alongside Daniela for the past half-decade, and am honored to have her lead N6A into our next chapter," said Mr. Rizzetta. "Daniela has been an exemplary leader and mentor for so many people through the years. Her vision, integrity and commitment are on display for our employees and clients every day, and I am thrilled to have a front-row seat to watch her operate in this much-deserved new role." Ms. Mancinelli has been N6A Chief Operating Officer since 2018, having joined the firm in 2015 as Vice President. She is an experienced marketer, publicist and public relations professional, who was honoured with a 2020 Marketing Edge Rising Stars award. "It is an extraordinary honor to represent N6A as CEO, and to carry forward the rich tradition that N6A has built over the past decade," said Ms. Mancinelli. "We have an exceptionally talented team and I couldn't be more excited to represent past, present and future generations of N6Aers as we serve our clients in a world-class manner and continue to create a special environment for our team members to call home." Mr. Hannaway also joined N6A in 2015, and has most recently served as Chief of Staff. He will report to Ms. Mancinelli in his new role.
