Jen started HATCH in 2009 to reinvent the way brands access creativity and creative talent. She serves on the boards of MassArt and GBH and the Governor’s Cultural Facilities Fund.


Rick doesn’t like to toot his own horn. But if he did, it would sound like “results-driven leader with 20+ years of experience on brands like BMW Motorrad, Frontier Communications and Party City.”


As the leader of our client services team, Alyssa partners with brands to create growth.  As a board member for Community Cooks, Alyssa makes seriously delicious meals for vulnerable neighbors.


Joe is into building things. And whether it’s a shed, a fixed-gear bike, or a brand identity Joe’s crafting, he puts in the work to get every last detail perfect.


Megan fully immerses herself in a client’s situation in order to really grasp the challenges and the strategic opportunities. Her approach requires intense commitment — and a lot of iced coffee.


Doug is a big-picture creative thinker who sweats the small stuff when it comes to the craft of copywriting. He uses exclamation marks sparingly but has a weak spot for em dashes.


Kristen makes an impact at HATCH by keeping clients on track and tackling research projects. She makes a difference in the community as a founder of Black Lives Matter Art Allies.
