Founder and President
Albert Maruggi has spent his 25 year career in communications working in broadcast journalism, national politics, corporate marketing, and venture capital. In the 1980s Maruggi worked as a radio and television journalist in markets across the Midwest. He moved to politics when he became a press secretary for a Congressman from Nebraska and then the press secretary for the Republican National Committee during the 1988 president election cycle. He served as a communications senior staff member for presidential cabinet members in the Bush ’41 Administration. He’s also held several upper-level global corporate marketing and communications positions.
Maruggi’s broad communications perspective and political background merged with the unique characteristics of social media is the foundation for his new perspective on how companies should restructure their marketing organizations into newsrooms. Maruggi has developed a keen sense of the impact new media are having on marketing, communication and business in general. From the technical aspects of recording and production to the strategic elements of new-media marketing, Maruggi is a well-rounded and knowledgeable resource on new media and consumer engagement.
Maruggi is the host of one of the longest running podcasts, the Marketing Edge, available since February 2005. He has provided insight to a wide variety of clients from, business consultants to software developers, publishers to governors, using social media to break ground and achieve business goals.
