John Connors is the co-founder and CEO of Boathouse Group, a Boston based full-service marketing and technology agency focused on how marketing can drive company performance. He has built the business over 18 years purely on referrals and a great reputation, as well as a simple idea that if you make a promise, you keep a promise. This mindset has rewarded John and his company with large success along with a high retention rate among clients. After starting his career at the largest agency in New England (Hill, Holliday) and the largest agency in the world (McCann), he launched his own firm in 2001. John has a strong belief that agencies and marketing departments have lost the respect of C-Suites and boards over the past few decades, while possessing an equally strong conviction that now is the best time in a generation to rebuild that respect based on the ability to connect strategy, data, creativity and technology.
