“I’m thrilled to have David, Robert and Scott join me as we build an entirely new model for marketing, media and brand advisory resources. With their proven talent and deep experience, I couldn’t be more excited to welcome them to Acceleration as the company takes its next steps,” said Nyman. “I am really pleased to go into the new year with much of our operating group being set in place, and our advisory business rounding into shape, with more staff and client announcements expected in the new year, and our first couple of acquisitions targeted for the first half of the year.”

Kingsdale is responsible for identifying acquisition candidates and leading due diligence and negotiations for acquisitions and strategic investments. With more than 30 years as an executive, entrepreneur and corporate attorney, Kingsdale has built and led multiple organizations and currently serves as Chairman of the Board of Independent Trustees of  Aspiration.com, a financial services company.

Floyd will be responsible for developing and leading the Collaboration effort between all business units populating ACC. While prepping the plan for Collaboration, he has also been working directly with clients in Acceleration Brand Advisory, ACC’s marketing and media consultancy. Most recently, Floyd was Senior Vice President of Marketing and Operations for Will.i.am’s tech start-up company, I.AM.PLUS. Prior to that, he spent 20 years at PMK*BNC running the growth department as well as directing marquee clients’ accounts across several industries.

Ogden oversees finance and acquisitions strategy, including financial oversight of ACC and its operating group as well as financial diligence and structuring of acquisitions. An experienced finance and strategy professional, Ogden previously ran strategy and corporate development at Madison Wells Media (MWM), a diversified entertainment company, and was an investment professional at Screen Capital International, an investment firm specializing in media and entertainment.

A 30-year expert and operator in the marketing and communications industry, Nyman was formerly co-chairman and co-CEO of PMK*BNC, where he helped the firm become a global leader in entertainment public relations and marketing. Nyman launched ACC in Spring 2018 as an alternative solution to the current marketing and media agency resources available in the market today, while balancing the changing consumer market with the client’s needs and wants.
