Matt Hofherr

Chief Strategy Officer, Co-Founder

Hofherr has served as a managing partner at seven agencies. He worked at TBWA\Chiat\Day, BBDO, FCB, and Kirshenbaum Bond + Partners -- all when they were named “Agency of the Year.”

Citron Haligman Bedacarre decided that, rather than selling, they would bring Matt on as the fourth partner. Two hundred new employees and $250 million in billings later, they became AKQA.

Then came the opportunity to help with the creative rebirth of the San Francisco office of TBWA\Chiat\Day, a stint as president of Omnicom’s Direct Partners, Omnicom’s Senior Management Program, and his second nomination to the American Advertising Federation’s Hall of Achievement.

Matt’s brand experience ranges from A to Z: Apple, Blistex, CDW, Citizens Bank, Cisco, Delta Dental, Earthlink, Fox Sports, Giants, HNC Software, iGo, Jamba Juice, Lonely Planet, Levi’s, McKesson, Nestle, Palm, QuickBooks, Rock the Vote, Sony PlayStation, Tropicana, Webex, Wal-Mart, and Zurich Direct.

Matt lives in the East Bay area with his lovely wife, Michele, and his daughter, Samantha.
