Nancy Hill Retiring As CEO At Marcus Thomas


Longtime agency veteran and former CEO of the 4A’s Nancy Hill is stepping down from her role as CEO at Cleveland-based agency Marcus Thomas. She’s been in the role since 2022 and will now retire from the agency business to pursue some passion projects.  



The agency said two executives Scott Chapin and Jamie Venorsky will succeed Hill in running the agency. Chapin has been elevated to CEO from president and Venorsky, Chief Creative Officer since 2019, will now also serve as president.  

“I really never planned to return to an agency full time but as a board member and fan, it was the only thing to do when [former CEO] Jim Nash had to move up his retirement for personal reasons,” said Hill, who is credited with raising the agency’s national profile.  

Hill said it has been a long-time dream to work with organizations such as CASA which provides Court Appointed Special Advocates for children in the judicial system. 

Marcus Thomas has 280 employees across offices in Cleveland, Cincinnati, Buenos Aires and Santiago, Chile.
