Specializing in marketing and operations, Andrew Arcangel met renowned sports designer Ramon Mejia Jr. on a joint consultation project with the Brooklyn Nets in 2018. After finding that their individual perspectives and experiences complemented each other, they along with Ramon’s business partner, Rene Florville — a creative director with 20+ years of corporate experience — came together to form Cycoon and assist each other’s clients in new, exciting ways. Together, they bring over 50 years of combined experience in all areas of business ranging from advertising, branding, design, financial planning and analysis, fulfillment, inventory planning, marketing, operations, production, strategy, and more. As passionate individuals who have started and managed their own companies, they bring the same energy and commitment to your business as you would to your own. This dedication is what allows them to not only assist you in areas you’re looking to expand, but also allows them to identify and focus on areas of growth that haven’t been previously explored.
Since forming in 2018 in New York City, Cycoon has assisted over 60 businesses ranging from early stage startups to Fortune 500 companies.
