Our Story

Like most great endeavors, North Sixth Agency began with a dream and a hard conversation. In 2010, Matt Rizzetta—at this point a new, first-time father—popped an unexpected question to his wife: “Will you let me start my own company?”

Matt’s dream of a new kind of public relations firm—one that brought a different energy, approach, and accountability to the field—was met with a welcome reply: “I believe in you.”

From that first day onward, N6A's commitment to service has fueled our obsession to maximize client returns by driving meaningful results. In 2019, N6A unveiled Outcome Relations™, a new way of doing public relations built to deliver impactful, measurable results. In 2021, we expanded our service offering with the launch of our sister agency, Studios, bringing our results-driven approach to marketing, video production, and content development. N6A and Studios are now housed within North Sixth Group, which was founded in 2021 to provide strategic services, operating expertise, and investment capital. 

Through our growth into an industry-leading firm and integration into North Sixth Group, we’ve never lost the scrappy attitude, commitment to service, and out-of-the-box thinking that carried us through N6A’s formative period.
