Nick Magiera: How it all started
I graduated from Fordham University’s Gabelli School of Business in New York City with a major in Business Administration, a double concentration in Marketing & Management and a minor in Communications. On top of that, I was a 4-year starter on the Division-1 FCS Fordham Rams football team, finishing off my senior year as an unanimously-voted team captain. My business career started out at America’s largest independently-owned public relations firm, ID Public Relations, working for high profile clients such as Nintendo, Ben Stiller, Netflix, and Jennifer Lawrence. I quickly moved up in the marketing world by landing a job as the Marketing Manager of one of the country’s leading pool & spa manufacturers, Pleatco. It amazed me how in-tune sales were with the quality of our marketing materials. Working closely with their VP of Marketing, I became infatuated with the knowledge and understanding of great design.
