Steve Babcock
We worked together  •  Aspiring Founder of a new ad agency in Boulder, CO. Formerly: VP/Executive Creative Director at Crispin, Porter + Bogusky and EVB.
I had the profound pleasure of working with Steve at Crispin, Porter + Bogusky for several years. I was constantly impressed with his human ... approach to the business. He was easily the smartest guy in every room, but also humble enough that he never went out of his way to make sure you knew it. Steve is a natural leader, mentor and advisor. He understands the power that comes from empowering others. His leadership is thoughtful, honest and sincere. Above all, his track record speaks for itself. Which is good for Steve, considering he's too modest to tell you himself.
Jeff Graham
We worked together  •  Partner _ Managing Director, GRENADIER
Steve Erich is one of the sharpest guys I've ever worked with when it comes to building creative organizations and big time brand marketing. ... He's got that rare combination of empathy with C-suite client-side marketers and a passion for making groundbreaking creative work. Devastatingly effective whether walking halls of a creative agency or on the executive floor of a Fortune 500 corporation. He's been a mentor and friend to me for more than 20 years now. I wouldn't dream of making a big career or business decision without first getting advice from Steve Erich. You shouldn't either.
Chris Wexler
SVP, Managing Director, Compass Point Media, division of Campbell Mithun and Marketing Consulting, Not For Sale.
Steve has been at the forefront of groundbreaking strategy and communications his entire career.
Jessica Lewis
We worked together  •  Founder, Uncover The Gold. Former head of biz dev, 72andSunny. Consultant, empowering authenticity-fueled, impact-minded growth.
Steve is one of the most thoughtful, strategic and savvy marketing executives I've worked with. His intuitive ability to navigate relationsh ... ips combined with a keen understanding of what makes effective brand strategy and creative make him an exceptional leader and visionary. He will undoubtedly bring great experience, wisdom and and invaluable perspective to any organization.
Katie Kempner
We worked together  •  Founder, Kempner Communications. Previously EVP/Chief Communications Officer, Crispin Porter + Bogusky. University of Miami grad.
Steve is extremely knowledgable in a wide variety of areas which would be incredibly useful to entrepreneurs, clients, advertising agencies, ... product innovation firms and any firms that are interested in building their brand. He also has deep connections in many industries and is a great teacher.
Rupert Samuel
We worked together  •  Executive Director of Global Content, Crispin Porter + Bogusky. Previously Co-founder/EVP integrated production, Goodness Manufacturing.
I worked with Steve for many years and he was always the guy you wanted in the room. Cool calm and collected and extremely smart. He is defi ... nitely a big thinker and a great manager.
Matt Walsh
We worked together  •  Founder / Chief Experience Officer, Green Stone. Previously EVP / Executive Experience Director, Crispin Porter + Bogusky. NYU grad.
Steve is a pro. Savvy in a boardroom. Creative with solutions. Trustworthy as a coworker and friend. Smart in navigating the institutional ... realities of the corporate world while being true to the human beings and ideas behind it all. I worked with him for many years at my last job, and as soon as I heard he broke free... It was a no-brainer. He is an advisor for my startup, and I'd encourage you to chat with him as well.
Benny Thomas
We worked together  •  Executive Strategy Director, Crispin Porter + Bogusky and Brand Strategy Leader, Crispin Porter + Bogusky.
In the years I worked with Steve, I admired how he won the trust of his clients in the simplest, yet often most difficult way: by always sta ... ying focused on their business goals and objectives and never letting anything get in the way of achieving those objectives, not even the clients themselves. In fact, he has never hesitated to push for what's right, no matter what the opposition. But at the same time, his quiet, respectful, self-effacing style brings people together, unifies factions and gets things moving. He is effortless in his leadership style and encourages and enables others to achieve their fullest. Most importantly for an advisor, his broad experience across categories, continents and business stages, coupled with his proven track record building CP+B, will be invaluable for any business that chooses to work with him. I loved working with Steve and would do so again in a heartbeat.

Katie Kempner
Founder, Kempner Communications. Previously EVP/Chief Communications Officer, Crispin Porter + Bogusky. University of Miami grad.
I worked with Katie for over 10 years at CP+B where she was a huge part of our success. Since she went out on her own less than a year ago, ... I've continued to work with her and have recommend her firm to anyone who needs a world class marketing/advertising PR solution. She's the best.

Benny Thomas
We worked together  •  Executive Strategy Director, Crispin Porter + Bogusky and Brand Strategy Leader, Crispin Porter + Bogusky.
Benny is one of the most intelligent, persuasive and generally enjoyable people I have ever know. His depth of knowledge on basically any su ... bject that arrises is amazing, but his curiosity and desire to learn and grow is what sets him apart and makes him such a great partner in any business undertaking.
