“Chris is a freak of nature. I really think he is a once-in-a-generation talent. This guy can literally do every element of the marketing mix himself, from the creative to the analytical. And he does it better than anyone I’ve ever worked with over my 25+ year career. Super creative. Super analytical. Data driven. Ahead of trends. A genius-level social IQ. I’ve never seen anything like it.” -A client who wished to remain anonymous
“Chris Franco has that uncanny ability to search through his brain and connect people to other people or connect people to ideas, places, or websites that will help them. In my 20+ years in this business, I’ve met a ton of people who have asked me for favors and asked me to help them– Chris is one of the few folks I know who has repeatedly offered to help me accomplish something without asking anything in return. He’s a rare gem in a thoughtless industry, has outstanding ideas, and is brilliant at connecting the dots. I’ve yet to meet anyone as thorough as Chris in this business!” –Wendy Day
“Chris Franco is among the most talented and entrepreneurial marketers I have had the privilege of working with. He is the best example of a T-shaped modern marketer: deep expertise in Search, Social and Mobile marketing, and broadly knowledgeable about technology, business, and people. He is an adaptive thinker, a born leader and a lifelong learner. He doesn’t have to “lean into” change; Chris is change. Above all, Chris is a real guy; Midwest work ethic and Northeast smarts. He listens before he speaks, recognizes the value of being understanding before being understood, keeps his promises, and consistently plays the game to win” –Jason Newport
