Gino Colangelo

Gino founded Colangelo & Partners ( in 2006 after spending over 10 years with global agency Dentsu, winning business and developing communications strategies for a blue-chip client list that included Siemens, Japan Airlines, Suntory and more.

Gino is most proud of the team at Colangelo & Partners, the growth of individual employees and the partnerships the agency has built with its prestigious, global family of clients.

How brands can overcome supply chain disruptions

Reports indicate that there is no end in sight to the record pace of import cargo, the congestion at global ports and terminals, the shortage of warehouse space and labor, and the continued schedule disruptions through the year and into 2022. The pandemic combined with these challenges has created the biggest shipping challenge in the last 20 years. With these challenges on the supply chain, Alexi will identify how brands can ensure their products reach the US market and offer insight into how brands can change their business models and take control of their logistics.
