Nicole Mahoney, President

Nicole has been an entrepreneur for more than 20 years. She began Break The Ice Media in 2009 when digital media began to have a dramatic impact on the advertising landscape. Many of the business owner's that Nicole worked with were looking for marketing answers. The tried and true advertising methods they had been used to were no longer bringing in new business. Her goal was to build a marketing communications firm to help the small business create marketing strategies and plans that achieve results. Break The Ice Media was conceived to help businesses tell their brand story through public relations, digital and traditional channels. In Nicole's role, she is responsible for working with clients to understand their marketing needs, develop plans and execute those plans. She is also responsible for building a team that can deliver!

A few icy gems about Nicole: She loves the Finger Lakes region where she was born and raised. She is raising 4 daughters with her husband, John.  She enjoys playing euchre in her girls card club.
