After two years of spearheading mono's San Francisco office, Jeffrey Gorder is returning to the agency's Minneapolis headquarters to serve as chief growth officer. In this newly created role, he will work closely with mono’s partners and CMO Erin Keeley to drive new business, bolster current client growth and help to develop and launch new, innovative services.
In July 2015, the nine-year mono veteran was promoted alongside to Jane Delworth and Paula Maki to managing directors, and relocated to the Bay Area to open mono’s second office, a response to the agency’s growing West Coast-based clients. His role was to build the San Francisco office’s client roster. In the first year, he brought in five new business wins for the office.
“Not only has he helped us build roots in San Francisco, but he’s landed us major pieces of business with clients that come to us for our innovative, design-driven ideas," says Jim Scott, Founder, managing director, mono. "His client savvy is unparalleled and we couldn’t be more excited to have him in this new leadership role.”
mono’s San Francisco office will continue to be led by Delworth as managing director and Maki as managing creative director. The shop recently hired design veteran Blake Bäkken, who previously founded Venables Bell & Partners’ design department and project leader David Watts Miller, who previously worked at Kirshenbaum, Bond, Senecal + Partners and Hal Riney.
The agency’s current clients include Google, PepsiCo, Stanford Health Care, Walmart, Loews Hotels, among others.
