Publicis agency Team One hired Kyle Acquistapace as executive director of idea communications.
In the role Acquistapace will serve as part of Team One’s executive leadership team, tasked overseeing the agency’s PR, media and experiential marketing departments.
“With Team One opening its sixth U.S. location earlier this month in Dallas, and total employee count exceeding 500 employees, our current trajectory is a good one,” Team One president Julie Michael said in a statement. “Bringing Kyle onto our executive leadership team ensures we are applying top industry talent against all of our clients’ businesses. Kyle’s an accomplished leader and someone who will continue to help us expertly guide clients through the modern media landscape.”
She added that the agency “…needed the right person to keep propelling our integrated vision forward. As the agency moves more deeply into immersive realities, 360 video, artificial intelligence and smart-home technologies, it will require that we have the right mix of progressive leaders at the top.”
Acquistapace most recently served as president, managing partner for Supermoon, a Santa Monica-full service agency whose clients include The Honest Co., Ancestry, GoFundMe and Bolthouse Farms. Before arriving at Supermoon last June he spent over 16 years with Deutsch L.A., most recently serving as partner, director of media and data strategy. He has also taught as an adjunct professor at the University of Southern California.
“I love that the agency stands for something: luxury brands and their unique consumers,”Acquistapace said of joining Team One. “Joining an agency with that kind of focus and expertise is fantastic.”
