Wendy Levine, President // 21GRAMS
21GRAMS President Wendy Levine began her career in healthcare as a sales rep for Johnson & Johnson. Recognizing her passion for marketing, she quickly moved in-house, where she exceled as a Group Product Director, and later, at Novartis – as a Senior Director of Marketing. A love for advertising brought her to the agency world, where she rose through the ranks within account management at The Bloc, held the role of EVP, Managing Director at McCann Health; and eventually, Director of Client Services at GSW. Known for her honesty, partnership, and endless work ethic, Wendy echoes the mantra, “Be good to each other, but tough on the work.” To this day, there is no conclusive proof that she actually sleeps.
Frank Mazzola, Chief Creative Officer
21GRAMS CCO Frank Mazzola is one of the most awarded creatives in health. With a career that has spanned FCB Health, GSW, and most recently, Executive Creative Director at McCann Health NY (where he led the agency to win its first Cannes Lion, in less than a year), Frank has a well-documented history of making brands and agencies better. As a speaker at the DTC National Conference, a grand jury member for the Global Awards, and 2017 juror for Clio Health – his perspective, insight, and creative ability has helped push the industry forward. All without owning a single fedora, indoor scarf, or all-black outfit. He really beat the odds.
Jayson Dupré, President // 21GRAMS Ed
21GRAMS Ed, our patient and medical education division, is led by President Jayson Dupré. As both a physician and an MBA, even your mom would be proud of him. A graduate of the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine, Jay became Chief Resident of internal medicine at Lehigh Valley Hospital. He then mastered business, earning his MBA from Villanova. This was followed by a key medical affairs role at AstraZeneca – before delving into Med Ed on the agency side. With 20 years of experience, Jayson has innovated, moderated, and forged deep and meaningful KOL relationships. His mind for marrying science with commercial strategy is second to none. And he’s also a father of four daughters, and continues to survive. That’s got to mean something.

According to Jason, a Red Sox fan’s soul probably weighs 5, 6 grams tops.
Brian Schwartz, EVP, Acquisition + Growth
Brian is an industry veteran who built his career on the client side of sales and marketing for over 20 years. A great storyteller and devoted dad, Brian builds partnerships between 21GRAMS and clients that are more than a business transaction – but a true relationship, built upon shared values, mutual respect, and doing what’s best for the business, brand, and patients. As far as communication, Brian doesn't just text or email. He picks up that internet machine we call a phone and actually calls people. Regularly. With his voice.
