Maestro of Media
This summer, Mark Bodi was named as president of Griffin, Bodi & Krause — the state’s busiest and most famous ad agency — but you won’t find him tied to a desk. His passion is working in the trenches, forging gutsy deals that many people wouldn’t even think about and making sure that all the parties come out on top. He knows that the Manchester-based agency has 30 years of history and legend to live up to, but he’s laser focused on the future. “We are incubating a very exciting interactive program on behalf of two of our major accounts — a dynamic and heretofore unseen integration of both traditional and new media,” says Bodi. “It’s not as confidential as a Dean Kamen invention, but it’s nothing I can talk about right now.”
New Hampshire Magazine knows where "It" is at. Each November, we identify the state's most happening people and publish their names and profiles in our annual "It List."
So what defines an "It" Person?
How about buzz, panache, je ne sais quoi, currency, a person whose time has come, a person of tomorrow, a timeless person, noteworthy, below the radar, in the news, in the know, hot, cool, high impact, slippery, a mover and shaker, a humble saint, a behind-the-scenes operator, a scenery chewer, an unsung hero, a hero who knows how to sing.
It's a quality that's hard to define, but you know it when you see it.
