I’m Chris Greta

and you’ve already spent twice the average time on my CV.

Seven seconds is all most resumes ever get and you’re still reading.

Maybe you’re on to something.

I’m a Creative Director. I’ve started and run successful agencies and worked in-house to build highly effective creative departments.

I’ve managed creatives and sold incredible ideas to CEO’s and consumers.

Now we’re over thirty seconds.

Let’s see what clients say.

Jeff Connally

Entrepreneur and Author

”I have engaged Chris to brand and build the marketing platform for several companies I have started & run.

His ability to distill a complex product or service down to its essence and create powerfully impactive messaging has been key to my success.”

Lee Thomas

Digital Transformation Leader

“People say Chris thinks out of the box. Not so!

In Chris’ world, there is no box.

Only infinite creative solutions he seems so adept at seeing. Chris fits no archetype I’ve ever known. He simultaneously makes and breaks all the rules. His ideas are so simple and distilled that you slap your head and think, ‘Well, duh! That’s the obvious way to do that.” But you wouldn’t have ever thought of it yourself. That’s why you hire Chris.”

Bruce Flory

CMO

“Over the years, I have needed the expertise of a marketing and creative design partner to help launch new products and even companies.

One person I always turn to is Chris Greta.

Chris is an amazingly creative individual who has developed a methodology that quickly drives creative results. Chris’ advice and creative proposals never fail to squarely address the marketing challenge and deliver unique and high-impact results.”

Susan Tormullen

CMO HomeAway

“I keep coming back to Chris. He helped me at Silicon Labs, HomeAway Software/Expedia and two start-up software companies. He always gets up to speed quickly, asks the right questions, and delivers great thinking.”

Emily Lynch

CMO

“Working with Chris is an exceptional and unique experience. He has a process of his own that allows him to create a fascinating life behind any brand. He is naturally curious, thorough, a great listener as well as a great question asker – all of which lead him to bring fresh insights to the teams he works with. Chris’s ability to elevate and simplify any brand while having empathy towards all of the work that has already been put into it is truly a rare and unmeasurable skill. I will never go through a branding exercise without consulting him!”

John Doyle

CMO

“Chris Greta is probably the best Creative Director I’ve worked with in my career. (I know, that’s saying a lot.)

Whether it’s creative, branding, or positioning, Chris is superb.

I’ve been consistently impressed by his originality and ability to crystalize often fuzzy marketing concepts into unique designs, strategies, and campaigns. Chris is as good as they get, and I highly recommend him.”

Jerry Phillips

CEO, Author, Speaker, NineRuns

“Chris worked with our team to develop our new brand most creatively, and uniquely I’ve been associated with. He is a creative genius.

He listened and absorbed our service solutions in a very short window, boiled them down to the actual customer benefits, then created a branded product offering that we have moved forward with. The uniqueness is in the process he executes, the speed at which he does it, and the unbelievable creativity he offers. It can’t be duplicated.

We will use Chris’s skills again and again.”

Julie Anglin

Global Brand Director Solarwinds

“I brought Chris into Solarwinds for a week to help develop a campaign for one of our products. It turned out that the work he created was so good that product managers started clamoring for his help on their products.

This went on for a whole year!”

You’re probably up to three minutes by now.

You scanned the quotes and lingered on a few. Then you scanned the client list. By now you’re thinking, “If I hire Chris, I’ll save a lot of time on those
other interviews.”

Good thinking.
Let’s meet.
