Robin Casmirri
Chief Operating Officer

Overseeing day-to-day agency operations, Robin leads, mentors and empowers Blue Onion Media’s team to deliver the best work possible in support of our client partnerships.  Her multi-disciplinary experience, including media planning and buying, public relations, direct marketing, account management, production and traffic management, has given her a more holistic understanding of the advertising and media industry.

Having spent 30+ years at ad agencies in Atlanta, Phoenix, Des Moines and Denver, Robin brings extensive expertise in integrated marketing consulting, strategic media planning, advertising negotiation and media buying across all online and offline media. She has worked with clients in a variety of categories – including travel, tourism and hospitality, considered-purchase, manufacturing, construction, home improvement, healthcare, QSR, financial services, energy and utilities, gaming, and education – to develop brand, co-op, and direct response campaigns targeting consumer and trade audiences through local market, national and international media.

While she understands the importance of ROI, especially in an economy where budgets are stretched to the limits, Robin knows there’s more to advertising than traditional metrics. Likewise, marketing tactics must be more than creative; they must be strategic and smart, driving real results for our clients.
