Published on January 16, 2023

DeLand, FL – January 16, 2023

Today New York Ave, a full-service marketing firm headquartered in Central Florida, announced a new addition to their leadership team.

Johnny Hicks will serve as Creative Director, providing guidance and project management across the agency’s projects, marketing, and media teams. Johnny is a creative thinker, with decades of experience building brands and leading small teams. His recent tenure as the co-founder of a video marketing agency in Tampa has been defined by work that includes launching a national anti-human trafficking non-profit and implementing an executive training program for a state-wide organization. Leaning on his experiences, Johnny will support New York Ave’s growth and expanding client base.

“Marketing has grown increasingly complex, and small to mid-sized businesses are struggling to muster the time, energy, and resources necessary to keep up. Having watched the way New York Ave has tackled these challenges with their clients these last ten years, I’m thrilled to have an opportunity to bring my own strengths and hard-earned knowledge into the fold,” said Johnny Hicks. “I respect the maturity and established wisdom here, as much as I love the ‘still-youthful-and-hungry-for-results’ spirit that is present with the team,” he said.

“This is an exciting time to be joining New York Ave,” Johnny said. “Here’s to new adventures, collaborative creativity, and mutual success!”

New York Ave is approaching their tenth year in business and is known for their methodical approach to managed marketing services. Their clients span a variety of service-based and B2B businesses, with an emphasis on medical and manufacturing industries.

“We’re building a company for the next decade and the decade after that”, said Joshua Hays, New York Ave’s Founder and President. “To do that successfully for ourselves, our employees, and our clients, we remain focused on sustainable strategy – not flashy trends – and are extremely thoughtful when hiring and growing our team,” he said.

“Johnny’s spent the entirety of his professional career embodying these same ideals, while keeping a watchful eye on the future,” Joshua said. “I’m eager to include his strengths on our team and excited by the future we’ll build together.”
