Samantha Russo: born in Jersey, raised near Miami, obsessed with South Carolina and mac & cheese. How’s that for eclectic? She’s also fanatical about Taylor Swift and pugs…despite the fact that she doesn’t even own one.
We were willing to overlook that last part because Sam has PR chops that not only exist, they’re pretty impressive. Formerly with Pierson Grant, Sam worked on accounts ranging from performing arts and law firms to non-profits and even the parent company of the Applebee’s franchise. If she had it her way, she’d work on non-profits all the time. Yep, she’s one of those do-gooders who puts us all to shame.
As an Account Director, Sam runs several accounts including Jersey Mike’s, Denny’s, Captain D’s, Pinch A Penny and more.
Outside the office, Sam takes full advantage of her south Florida surroundings. The minute she gets home from work, it’s roller blading, beach cruising on her bike equipped with basket and bell, or experimenting with the new paddleboard her boyfriend got her for Christmas. It was no pug, but Sam’s not complaining; she’ll stick with her imaginary one for now.
