Matt Van Hoven, Co-Founder

Matt’s career began as a reporter, and later an editor, at AgencySpy, which he grew from a fledgling blog into a daily must-read. Following his tenure, the site was purchased by Adweek. He’s sorry for any pain he may have caused. Mashable, Buzzfeed and Digiday have published his stories.
