Nice Things PeopleSay About Me
Catherine Sheehan / SVP, Brand Strategy Director at Allen & Gerritsen
I've worked with Aurelio for years, and there's no one I'd rather go into digital/web-build battle with. We've collaborated on a number of complex, demanding clients - many of whom are in the B2B space. And without fail Aurelio is able to deliver a product that's creative and intuitive - and, most importantly, a product that works for their business. He's fantastic with clients - he's thoughtful. He's great at explaining technical, hard-to-get stuff. He puts them at ease. Answers their questions. He's one of the most patient people I've ever met. And he makes all of us - client and agency team members - better at our jobs. I'm gonna miss him. And I'm truly jealous of whatever organization gets him next.
Doug Gould / Executive Creative Director at Boston University
During the 4+ years I had the pleasure of working with Aurelio, I found him to be ridiculously smart, informative and patient in our work in the digital space. Like many of the best who ply their trade in advertising he's remarkably cool under pressure and a terrific mentor to those who work for and with him. A born teacher and a genuinely great person.
Brian Donovan / SVP Group Director, Marketing at Allen & Gerritsen
Aurelio is a dedicated partner and trusted advisor with all things digital production. Over the years of working together, "AD" has been my "go-to" whenever opportunities or questions arise on the digital front. He's accountable and always willing to go the extra mile - even late into the night/AM. Aurelio is approachable and knowledgeable. He's a great partner.
Scott Savitt / Senior Partner, Director of Digital at Connelly Partners
Aurelio is a true team player. He has the ability to seamlessly transition from client to client--and provide incredible ideas, technical advice and manage junior Interactive Producers all at the same time. Amongst other reasons, I think this ability has helped him to gain a lot of respect from his peers.
Chris Lee / VP Creative Director at Allen and Gerritsen
Don't let the tattoos and the creepy comic figures he has around his desk fool you. Aurelio is one of the nicest, well-rounded digital producers you'll ever meet. A fair and honest manager. A tireless, roll-up-your-sleeves doer. Aurelio has a knack for knowing what any given digital dilemma calls for. From choosing platforms to defining experiences, he channels the resources and deliver goods in a way that gets clients to trust his decisions. The only trouble with Aurelio is that I am not sure he sleeps.
Greg Knoff / Agency Executive & Marketer at Allen & Gerritsen
Working alongside Aurelio for the last 4+ years was in one word…easy. Given his deep knowledge base of all things digital he brings a unique level of expertise and more importantly his calm and approachable style makes him highly effective with clients, putting them at ease. He brings stoic leadership rooted in a true team-based approach and seamlessly integrates with both...more.
Dimitry Herman / Founder at Herman Law
Aurelio is a real find. He has deep domain expertise in the interactive/internet advertising markets and knows all the right players, small to large, with whom to do business. He is a very tough but fair negotiator, knowing which issues are important in advance. He was a real pleasure to work with as a client, and I am sure that goes double for his internal colleagues.
Steve Skroce / Senior Manager, eCommerce at Staples
Aurelio is a very easy person to work with. I should know... we've worked on numerous projects together. He knows how to give people the space and resources they need to be successful. He knows deadlines; he knows what's reasonable and what's ridiculous without having to be told. His charm and personality are his greatest asset since he can get anyone to do anything and they'll do it with a smile. Basically, what it comes down to is, he knows how to do his job really well and he gets it.
Adam Cote / Senior Copywriter at Arnold Worldwide
Working with Aurelio is like working with Commander Riker from Star Trek. His coworkers love him, he always gets the job done, and he never hesitates to lead a team on a mission to some strange, unexplored world. He always keeps the big picture in mind, and he's incredibly resourceful. Also, there's a good chance you'll end up talking about aliens at some point.
Jessica Oei / Senior Web Developer at Allen & Gerritsen
Aurelio is someone who will get the job done. His tech know-how and ability to work with different departments to complete a project are indispensable assets. On projects that I worked with him on, I was always confident that he knew every moving part and what they needed to do. He will do whatever it takes and do a high quality job.
Alec Lieberman / Developer at Allen & Gerritsen
On the projects I worked with Aurelio, he was someone you could depend on. He was always on top of client communication and worked to figure out the best solutions for a myriad of challenging and engaging problems. He is a strong mentor as demonstrated by how quickly new producers learn and grow under his guidance.
Max Guerrero / Senior Web and Mobile Service Developer at MIT
Aurelio D'Amico has worked with me as a Director of Digital Production for the past 4+ years. He is fair and always seeks input from all parties involved when estimating and planning projects. He always has the best interests of his team and the client in mind at all times. He is also very knowledgeable about the technologies we use and those that are upcoming.
Natalie Bergeron / Senior Producer
As the Sr. Producer working with him, I'm consistently impressed by his commitment to his team, his work and Allen & Gerritsen. At his level, you might think that he would only manage and oversee while the team below him handles the day-to-day but nothing could be further from the truth. He is always willing to get his hands dirty and work to push through deliverables, help solve for any issues we may be faced with and mentor, so that his team is equipped to solve issues in the future. He is a trusted leader and resource and wears many hats along with VP of Digital Production, including IA and at times, UX. He is as excited to learn as he is to teach and he is always anxious to improve the production processes and uncover the next resource or tool that will improve overall efficiencies and, ultimately, client deliverables. He puts on no airs and he is the 'go to' guy for all things digital at A&G and finally, he is a wonderful team member that has the perfect balance of professionalism, modesty and humor. I couldn't hope for a better colleague and any team would count themselves lucky to have him on-board.
