Tony Mancilla Elected to amfAR Board
amfAR is pleased to announce the newest member of its board of trustees, Tony Mancilla.
Tony Mancilla has spent the last 15 years in marketing and advertising, working on campaigns for clients such as Lincoln Motor Company, Pepsi, AT&T, Budweiser, Citigroup, and many others. Five years ago, he founded Savanty, a creative marketing agency specializing in impact growth marketing. Mr. Mancilla has also partnered with a tech client to launch a proptech company called Lucy Networks, which is focused on health, wellness, and energy efficiency in work and living spaces.
Mancilla’s support of amfAR started in 2012, when he worked on a creative campaign with Kiehl’s for their LifeRide supporting amfAR. The experience turned out to be one of his most meaningful career decisions. Deeply impressed with amfAR’s work, Tony has continued to support LifeRide’s various creative campaigns and has attended and supported multiple amfAR events around the world with his wife Katie, including New York, Los Angeles, Cannes, and Venice.
“We’re delighted that Tony Mancilla has joined the board of trustees,” said amfAR Chief Executive Officer Kevin Robert Frost. “Having known Tony for many years, I can’t think of a better addition to amfAR’s leadership. The board, and the organization as a whole, will benefit greatly from his experience, business acumen, marketing prowess, and his passionate support of our work.”
Apart from his day-to-day work, Mancilla serves on the board of the Lisk Morris Foundation, a family foundation that provides funding to organizations promoting education, health and wellness, and arts and culture, predominantly in the Finger Lakes region of New York. Additionally, he serves on the corporate board of G.W. Lisk, a manufacturing company specializing in solenoids, valves, sensors and more for aerospace, space, and defense industry companies.
