Maleika Cole

Sr. Account Director

Maleika is one of our seasoned Senior Account Directors at Bandujo, where she focuses heavily on projects for Chase Bank. Her calm demeanor—a welcome trait in the break-neck world of NYC advertising—belies her high-speed mind and passion for results. All those attributes came into play when she spearheaded the introduction of Chase Sapphire Banking.

If a client’s in need of engaging new creative that can capture attention and drive behavior change, Maleika’s all about making sure that a thoughtful strategy, on-point messaging and impactful design come together to get the job done. 

Somehow, Maleika has become our resident scratch voiceover artist, and has made an appearance or two in front of the camera as well. Prior to joining the Bandujo team, Maleika worked at several NYC agencies, handling leading brands from American Express to Verizon to Samsung. 

She likes to say she graduated college with “a very useful” degree—a Bachelor of Music in Music Business & Vocal Performance from James Madison University. If you’ve heard her pipes in action, you know she must’ve been a star there. Outside of work, you can catch her designing jewelry, and working on her gemology degree from GIA.
