Andy Chalonec, an Account Director at Hinge, brings broad-ranging experience and exceptional credentials to every client he advises.
After a career on Wall Street as an investment banker, then managing marketing and innovation programs for agencies in Miami and New York, Andy moved to PepsiCo, where he worked for eight years on 20+ billion-dollar brands, including Gatorade, Frito Lay and, of course, Pepsi. In addition, he has advised, small- and medium-sized owners interested in growing, then future-proofing, their businesses.
Andy’s accomplishments started early. An Eagle Scout in high school, he then went on to the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania, where he graduated with a degree in Economics. He has since earned awards and certifications from AdAge Magazine, Lean Six Sigma Processes, MaRC Shop! Global Retail Expert, Supply Chain Cash Savings, Advertising Effies and Merchandising OMAs. He is proficient in Spanish and French.
When not advising clients, he enjoys shooting hoops or crushing balls in a batting cage. Andy is a member of Brand Innovators and serves on the board of a Wharton alumni group. He lives in Virginia with his wife, son, and daughter. But a part of him will forever be a New Yorker.
