Ernie Canadeo Founder & CEO
Ernie founded EGC in 1985 after a successful career as Director of Co-Op Advertising at RCA Records. Since then, he’s turned EGC into a full-service advertising, marketing and digital agency, and expanded into a second location in Manhattan.
Ernie had the vision to establish an “EGC Interactive” Division in 1997, and as a result, EGC is now recognized as a leader in digital marketing. He sits on many not-for-profit boards and is involved in many local business and cultural organizations.
He was named the “Entrepreneur of the Year” in 2011 by ACIT (Advancement for Commerce and Technology), and was elected to the Direct Marketing Association Hall of Fame in October 2013. He was recently elected Chairman of the Long Island Music Hall of Fame.
