In this role, Nitzberg will lead established teams dedicated to enhancing business-to-business engagement between retailers and suppliers in the United States and Canada.
Based in Cincinnati, Ohio, Nitzberg brings over 30 years of experience in successfully developing data-led growth strategies at the intersection of retailers, suppliers, and shoppers. His expertise spans strategy, data-led collaboration, marketing, media, sales, omnichannel commerce, and path-to-purchase understanding.
Across his career, he has worked with hundreds of suppliers and retailers in multiple B2C and B2B verticals. Most recently, Nitzberg served as a Partner at TPG, a global strategy and general management consulting firm. Nitzberg’s previous roles include Global Head of CPG and Global Head of Client Strategy & Capability at dunnhumby.

We’re excited about the additional client impact he will create,” says Chief Executive Officer, John McLoughlin.
Nitzberg will provide strategic, commercial, and organizational leadership across North America. This includes engaging strategically with clients, applying Advantage’s proven capabilities, and further tailoring them to meet client needs, as well as investing in the talent and teams.
Nitzberg said he was attracted to Advantage for three reasons: “First, Advantage has been generating meaningful value for clients for decades and has the growth record to show it. Second, it’s never been more important for retailers and suppliers to work closely and effectively. Third, the company has a great team and culture. I look forward to being part of it!”
