Katie Varano

Aqua is pleased to announce the hiring of Katie Varano of Naples who assumes the role of Account Executive within the agency.

Katie will oversee the agency’s longstanding client, Pelican Bay, a private, luxury, beachfront community of roughly 13,000 near Naples, Florida, providing supplemental account support for other clients including Charlotte Harbor Visitor and Convention Bureau and assisting in business development in Naples and Southwest Florida.

Previously, Katie managed the Naples office of Paradise Advertising and Marketing (founded by Aqua President Dave Di Maggio), managing the firm’s largest account, Naples, Marco Island and the Everglades Convention and Visitors Bureau, developing marketing campaigns and providing project management. Prior to joining Paradise, Katie worked in New York as a media planner for Universal McCann.

In assuming her new role at Aqua, Katie reunites with Di Maggio and key members of the team that marketed Collier County together previously. As Account Executive, Katie will provide project management and coordination, as well as marketing and strategic planning.

“As the Pelican Bay account continues to grow and with an increasing number of opportunities in the Naples area, it was imperative to bring on an experienced Account Executive who understands the industry and area,” said Aqua President Dave Di Maggio. “Katie’s hiring marks an exciting time for the agency as we are able to continue our long-standing working relationship and expand our foothold in Naples and Southwest Florida. I am confident she will be a valuable addition to our agency for years to come.”
