Adams & Knight Adds New CTO to Lead the Agencyâ€™s Growing Digital Marketing Technology Services
AVON, Conn., (May 18, 2021) — Adams & Knight, one of the region’s leading digital marketing services providers, has added a CTO to its senior leadership ranks. Eric Truntz, a proven technology leader with over 20 years’ experience working with Fortune 500 companies and technology consultancies, has joined the agency as its new Chief Technology Officer.
In this new role, Truntz will lead the agency’s rapidly growing team of technology specialists. In addition to overseeing the agency’s own increasingly sophisticated IT infrastructure, Truntz will direct the agency’s marketing technology and custom application development services.
Prior to joining Adams & Knight, Truntz served as a senior principle of NEOS, a management consulting firm providing data-driven technology strategies and services to half of the financial services companies on the Fortune 500 list. Across a span of over 15 years, Truntz also served in various technology leadership roles at The Hartford — driving transformative application design and development, enterprise digital commerce and customer analytics initiatives.
Truntz, a software engineer by trade, holds a B.S. in Computer Engineering from the University of Hartford and a Master’s Certificate in Business Administration from the University of Connecticut. He lives with his family in North Granby, Conn.
“What attracted me to Adams & Knight was the opportunity to put my enterprise-level technology experience to work in an entrepreneurial environment within an established agency,” said Truntz. “Here the focus is on being both incredibly nimble as well as thoughtfully innovative. I look forward to working with this impressive team to help clients leverage technology to drive business revenues and deepen customer connections.”
In addition to an array of custom application projects, Adams & Knight has developed several marketing technology platforms, one of which was recently awarded several U.S. patents. Truntz will be working with the team to advance the strategic roadmap for these marketing technology initiatives as well.
“As an agency, we’ve moved far beyond just developing websites and digital marketing campaigns,” said CEO Jill Adams. “We’re thrilled to welcome Eric on board to help us accelerate this momentum. His unique mix of skills will enable us to continue to marry creativity and technology to help clients more effectively market their organizations.
