Hi, I’m Michael…

 

I’m the Senior Vice President, Chief Creative Officer at Godfrey. 

I was incredibly fortunate to begin my career at Mighty Interactive, the digital shop founded by Jay Baer. Mighty was one of the first agencies to leverage the future email behemoth ExactTarget, ultimately helping the organization develop its ad agency offering before it was acquired by Salesforce for $2.5 billion. I went on to lead strategy and planning at Sitewire, Nomadic Agency, and COHN, before founding my own consultancy, barber&hewitt. In 2018, barber&hewitt joined Godfrey, one of the largest US-based B2B agencies, and was named one of Marketo’s Fearless 50, which recognizes the top marketers around the globe driving bold, fearless, marketing and digital transformation.

I have been super lucky to work with incredible teams of people throughout my career. Our work has been featured in The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, and Forbes.

Outside of the office, you will find me honing my relative unhealthy obsessions with donuts, cold brew, planes, BMWs, the Arizona Wildcats, and my two Westies, McDoogle and Bowie.
