Anthony founded Strategic Image Management in 2009, after 8 successful years of running campaigns throughout Florida. Pedicini started out in politics working for Lobbyist Billy Rubin, later being tapped to become a Legislative Aide to State Representative Gayle Harrell (R-Stuart), the Republican Conference Liaison in the Florida House Majority Office and a special assistant to State Representative Gaston Cantens (R-Miami).


In 1998 and 1999, Pedicini served as the Student Director of Florida's nationally acclaimed anti-tobacco program, the "Truth" Campaign. 

Recruiting thousands of teenagers to be advocates, he conducted training activities around Florida that helped teens and their adult supporters become media savvy and powerful grassroots activists.

In 1999, Pedicini helped organize the Truth Train, a 14-day public relations tour that received worldwide media attention.


Pedicini has served as an adviser to numerous members of Congress including Dennis Ross (FL CD-15), Lou Barletta (PA CD-11), Tom Rooney (FL CD-17), Ted Yoho (FL-CD 3) and Pat Meehan (PA CD-07) and worked to help elect the first Republican Mayor of Atlantic City, NJ in over 30 years.


Back in his home state of Florida, Pedicini has served future Senate President Bill Galvano, State Representatives, Ahern, Boyd, Combee, Diaz, Fitzenhagen, and Harrell and advised numerous others. He works tirelessly to elect numerous local elected officials like Sheriff Gary Borders & Tom Knight, Property Appraiser Billl Furst, and County and City public servants like Commissioners Sandy Murman, Todd Dantzler, Victor Crist and Mark Sharpe and Winter Haven City Commissioner, Brad Dantzler.


Besides campaigns, Anthony stays active helping local charities, especially those involved with finding a cure for cancer and most recently led the National Hockey League, Beard-A-Thon in funds raised while his favorite hockey team was still in the play-offs.


In 2000, Anthony earned his Bachelor of Arts degree in History from the Florida State University.


Thomas began working with Strategic Image Management in 2009, after 2 years of working on several state and local races throughout Florida.


Piccolo started his career in politics as an intern in the White House Office of Presidential Personnel in 2006, leaving his post to run for the Florida State House, District 53 in the same year.


After the 2006 Election, Piccolo joined the Tampa Bay Partnership; a regional economic development firm based in Tampa, Florida, where he worked on issues ranging from the Partnership’s legislative agenda to looking for new, innovative solutions to affordable housing.


In 2010, Piccolo helped develop winning messages and strategies for dozens of campaigns throughout Florida. Including two significant victories in close seats, where TEA Party candidates were used to syphon Republican votes in swing districts to help Democrats retain or flip seats.


Piccolo received his Bachelor of Arts Degree in Economics and History in 2006 from the University of South Florida.
