Duane Ciacco

Decades ago (and yes, he has the gray hair to prove it), Duane graduated from the University of Denver with a pair of major degrees in his pocket—Mass Communications and Studio Art. The world of corporate marketing and advertising welcomed him and it wasn’t long before Duane was strategizing national campaigns. But the lure of small agency work hooked his creative side and he’s never looked back. After gaining experience at two agencies in town: building teams, managing accounts, guiding creative and strategy for clients, he decided to give it a go on his own.  So, Ciacco Consulting was formed in 2012.  From NY to LA and across the globe to Africa, his project credits read like a geography lesson.

Some projects hit him in the gut. Like the one to Uganda, Africa where he produced and directed a documentary that followed a team of dentists, surgeons and staff treating kids with AIDS. Powerful images and experiences translated into powerful messaging.

And some projects were just plain fun. Like the time he was prepping for an ad campaign and found himself in performance-driving school putting a Ford Shelby Mustang GT into a controlled skid. Firsthand experience translated into powerful messaging.

Let’s just say Duane fuels his jets by exceeding his client’s expectations. Now there’s a thrill.
