The Martin Agency: U.S. Agency of the Year 2009

Pizza is Andy Azula’s favorite food. “I’ve been obsessed with pizza all my life,” jokes Azula, on location in Los Angeles shooting the agency’s first work for Pizza Hut. Azula, the longhaired creative director who has starred in about 50 of the agency’s “Whiteboard” commercials for UPS, is producing the work that won the shop its 14th piece of new business in 2009. “The work is going to be under a microscope,” says Azula of the campaign scheduled to debut next month. “The category is so competitive and results are measured in real time. I love that challenge.”
