TPN Announces Planning Team Leadership Promotions

NEW YORK, Feb. 28, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- In a move to bolster a critical agency discipline, creative commerce agency TPN has promoted Cheryl Policastro to managing director, planning, and Colleen Kelly to senior vice president, planning, in its New York office.

As managing director, Policastro will lead the agency's growing planning team. A 25-year retail, brand and analytics specialist, she joined TPN in 2016 and quickly established herself as a major contributor with her strategic insights and collaborative style.

Policastro has played key roles in TPN capability development and new business. She has vast client-side experience in brand management, sales, analytics and shopper insights and marketing across categories including over-the-counter (OTC) and health & beauty. In 2016, she was honored as a "Woman of Excellence" by the Path to Purchase Institute and a GOLD Effie winner in Shopper Marketing.

"Cheryl quickly demonstrated the impact of her passion for pairing human understanding with data-driven insights," said Sharon Love, TPN's chief executive officer. "Her collaborative approach ingratiated her to our TPN team and clients, and we are excited for her to lead this next chapter for the planning team."

Since joining the agency in 2015, Kelly has been invaluable to TPN's client and new business efforts. She established herself as among the best and brightest minds in shopper marketing and has contributed significantly to elevation of TPN's planning tools and processes.

"Colleen's talent, drive and experience make her a force to be reckoned with," Love said. "Her commitment to insights-based work delivers meaningful and relevant creative solutions that drive results above and below the line."

As a 2017 Shopper Marketing GOLD Effie Winner and a Top Place to Work, TPN is committed to hiring the right people—top talent such as Policastro and Kelly. The two will work together closely to further expand the planning team capabilities as the agency works to elevate its services to further deliver on its promise of "Commerce with Imagination™."
