Nick Wollner, a skilled and swift practitioner of the persuasive arts, is the Center’s Chief Marketing Officer. With more than 25 years of marketing and brand production experience, Nick has been instrumental in developing communications and brand strategies for such clients as AT&T, Coca Cola, Papa John’s Pizza, Jones Apparel Group, the New York Jets, Lilly Pulitzer, the Ritz-Carlton and Sundance. He's a master of ushering big ideas from concept to realization.

In 2001, Nick founded
1919 LLC, a brand production company, to serve entrepreneurial clients in brand development and communication. As Managing Partner at 1919, he continues to apply his vision of the studio structure to creative business as well as creative deliverables.

Prior to launching 1919, Nick was founder and president of Crossroads Films, one of the largest TV commercial production companies in the nation with offices in New York, Los Angeles and Chicago. Through its six separate divisions, Crossroads produced two feature films, TV programming for Sony, American Airlines, and The New York Lottery, multiple music videos, corporate films and documentaries, and thousands of television commercials.

Early on in Nick’s career, he worked in the television production departments at the legendary advertising agencies Benton & Bowles and Doyle Dane Bernbach. He thereby brings the Center, in the most admirable sense, the communicative chops and creative sensibilities of a Mad Man.
