Bob Abbate

President Creative Director

Ain't Nothin' Stoppin' Us Now. The Best Is Yet To Come. Pride And Joy. Figure it out? It's more than just a list of some of Bob's favorite tunes, it kind of sums up his business philosophy. Bob has assembled an amazingly talented and dedicated team here at BAM, as well as an impressive roster of clients. As the President and Creative Director, our founder isn't bashful to tell you what he thinks. But first... he listens. And thinks. And brainstorms. And leads. And draws from his years of experience as an entrepreneur, a broadcast sales manager, a marketing director, and a recognized expert in branding. During his career, Bob has been takin' care of businesses like Nissan, McDonald's, Anheuser-Busch, and Planet Fitness. He can do the same for you. Because together, there ain't nothin' stoppin' us now, because, as he'll tell you, the best is yet to come. After all, clients are his pride and joy. Rock on!

Christina Provenzano

Head Bookkeeper

As our lead Bookkeeper, Christina masterfully dissects the myriad of incoming invoices to ensure the accuracy of client billing. A skill she has mastered through the years, she finds comfort and peace of mind when all the numbers balance. Generous by nature, yet born to be wild, Christina finds much of her purpose in life is donating her time and encouragement at a local charity. When she’s not at work or volunteering, Christina’s been known to jump on her motorcycle, into her husband’s truck, or to set sail on her boat. Just as every penny counts in her job, every second counts in her life!
