Dave Di Maggio President/CEO
Dave is the founder, visionary, and leader of Aqua Marketing & Communications. With more than 30 years of award-winning experience in marketing, it would be easy for him to rest on his laurels. However, Dave is always thinking of the future. Where will Aqua take the clients we have today, and who will become the clients we have tomorrow? Even as Aqua competes for and wins national awards over some of the world’s largest agencies, Dave is constantly looking forward to that next accomplishment we can help our clients achieve, that next addition to our illustrious team of marketing experts, or that next client in need of something that’s more than an agency, but a partner dedicated to their business. Dave’s exceptional leadership, extensive experience, and breadth of knowledge is only outmatched by his uncanny ability to surround himself with brilliant creatives, PR professionals, account executives, and media buyers. He is a leader that raises those around him up to a level of performance they didn’t know they were capable of achieving. If Aqua is a team, he’s Tom Landry. If Aqua is an orchestra, he’s Count Basie. If Aqua is a unit, he’s General Patton.
Full-Service. And Full of Surprises.
Formed in 2010, Aqua is one of the few firms in the country specializing in both destination marketing and economic development. Our staff possesses extensive experience in both fields and is one of the most highly awarded firms in the destination marketing industry. Year after year, Aqua is recognized for its efforts on a regional, national and international scale.
A fully integrated, multi-functional marketing communications firm, Aqua’s staff understands the complete gamut of requirements to competitively define and market destinations. Every one of our staff is deeply experienced in their area of expertise as well as how it applies to and is leveraged within your industry. That experience includes branding and brand development, advertising, public relations, social media, media relations, events, lead conversion, collateral creation, broadcast and video production, web development, database development/management, as well as all aspects of online marketing (PPC, SEO, SEM and more).
And to top it off, you’ll find we’re really nice people and a joy to work with. We specialize in making life easier for our clients. So besides being constantly innovative, we’re also constantly willing to be flexible, pick up the slack, and help in any way.
