Moxie is a full-service digital agency in the US owned by Publicis Groupe. Unlike most other such agencies, Moxie operates not as part of a creative network or as a standalone agency, but under the umbrella of media network ZenithOptimedia. That's primarily as a result of its positioning as a specialist in digital content, rather than traditional web design or ecommerce. In 2013, the group acquired Enguage, a digital & direct agency in Ohio, for an undisclosed sum and the two business were combined under the Moxie name. That almost doubled the agency's size. AdAge estimated revenues of $110m for 2015. Suzy Deering resigned as CEO of Moxie in 2015 to become CMO of eBay. She was replaced by Sean Reardon, also CEO of Zenith USA and dedicated JP Morgan Chase digital agency Roar. Solange Claudio is president. Moxie was originally launched in 2000 by former commercials prodco executive Kris Zagoria. She sold the business to Publicis in 2006, and left the company three years later.
