MAIP Atlanta Interns work to build awareness for the Future Foundation

August 2019 – This summer, 8 4A’s MAIP interns participated in the AFC MAIP program in Atlanta. Each Wednesday, the interns rotated between the four agencies within the AFC coalition – Moxie, Fitzco, 22Squared, and JWT – getting opportunities to learn about each agency’s clients, work, and culture. They also met with panels of professionals, mentors, and executives from each agency and had candid conversations about advertising in Atlanta.

2019 AFC Intern of the Year

August 2019 – We’re proud to announce our 2019 AFC Intern of the Year, Taylor Torok.  Taylor Torok is a first-generation Cuban-American and a 2019 University of Florida grad with a degree in telecommunications and a concentration in marketing. This summer, she interned at Fitzco, demonstrating her passion for strategy and creativity. Ultimately, she led her team to victory in the AFC intern project. Taylor was named the winner of the AFC Intern of the Year Award at the 4A’s Face of Talent event in New York City. After careful deliberation, she chose to return to Fitzco and will be joining the team as a junior strategist in September.

We’re proud to announce our first award recipient, Lisa Marie Rainford. The 2017 University of Georgia graduate constantly impressed with her work, and it ultimately led AFC’s decision to choose her as MVP. Each of our four founding agencies then extended an identical job offer to Lisa, and when she took the stage and chose Fitzgerald & Co.’s offer as junior strategist, the room roared with pride and support.
