A New York staple, Magrino just celebrated a major milestone: 30 years in business. The team wasted no time in getting back at it as the world reopened, with staff officially in office, traveling for client to-dos and activating IRL events all over. It’s that hustle that has garnered the agency 25 percent growth over last year, especially in their wine and spirits division; Magrino took on new brand launches for Blake Lively’s Betty Buzz, and Hilarie Burton and Jeffrey Dean Morgan’s MF Libations, as well as the Fine Wine portfolio for Constellation Brands. In addition to those new names – plus business wins in their travel, real estate and consumer divisions – the agency saw much success in organic growth with existing clients Whispering Angel, New York City Decorator Showhouse and The Ranch Malibu, to name a few.
