Scelba established SGW Integrated Marketing Communications, Inc. in 1986. The agency develops segmentation marketing strategies that blend digital and traditional media channels. Throughout his career, Scelba has demonstrated the ability to foresee the impact of technology changes on the marketing industry, and positioned his companies to be at the forefront of the evolution. Before video rose to the top of marketers’ priority lists, Scelba added a video production department and full-scale cyclorama wall to SGW. As social media and content marketing became powerful business tools, Scelba led the PR department in growing these services areas and establishing 3E Public Relations as its own LLC to better market its capabilities.

In 2012, Scelba was inducted into the NJ Ad Club’s Advertising Hall of Fame of New Jersey for his industry accomplishments. The prestigious honor recognized his leadership, creativity, professional integrity, philanthropic and economic contributions, high national achievement, and personal involvement in the New Jersey marketing and communications community.

With Scelba’s exceptional communication skills, he has had the opportunity to be a keynote motivational speaker for business professionals, as well as professors and students at various universities. Scelba also prides himself on being involved in the local community and with non-profit organizations such as the American Cancer Society and March of Dimes.
