Powerful branding takes an equal measure of bold creativity and analytic savvy; an elegant blend of right brain strategy and left brain imagination. When it’s right, it ignites interest and moves people to action. It’s fresh, it’s inspired, and it makes a difference.

I know that stellar creative backed by smart data creates results; I’ve done it. Better data leads to better strategy, which produces better results. I founded Revolve to offer strategic marketing counsel to executives and marketing professionals who want to capitalize on the field’s quickly evolving opportunities. I can help your company stay at the forefront of this marketing revolution. Whether you’re a high tech start up or a firm with a more conservative clientele, my proven branding process can help put you ahead of the competition.

Revolve is an independent consultancy with a broad network of resources and services to provide you with the marketing expertise you need on the scale you need. You’ll work directly with me; your account won’t be passed off to associates after the initial introductions. Revolve revolves around you: your brand, your message, your needs and your audience. With a finger on the pulse of best practices today – and on new ones as they emerge – I can help you strengthen your brand and get the best possible results for your marketing dollar. Give me a call and let’s talk about your needs and how I can help.  


Timely Access to Evolving Opportunities
Knowing what’s new, what’s best and what’s next in marketing technology, data, and method is my passion. My insight, tailored to your brand, can help guide you and your staff as you move forward in this fluid new landscape.
Fresh Perspective and an Outside Context
I bring proven results and in-depth expertise across diverse audiences and industries. With my signature mix of out-of-the-box thinking and bottom-line focus, I can help you make your brand top-of-mind for the people you most want to reach.
A Single Point of Contact
When you work with Revolve, you work with me, Tom Matte; your account won’t be passed down to a junior team member. You get the benefit of my successful agency experience along with the luxury of individual attention to your account and one point of contact. Keeping Revolve lean allows me to tailor the extent of services to your company’s needs and budgets. And, not to worry, I have a well-vetted stable of creative and vendor resources at the ready to contribute where needed.
Data-Driven, Fact-Based Guidance
Data-driven, fact-based guidance using the latest technologies. Better data means better decisions and ultimately a better bottom line. New approaches, based on science rather than hunch, can help you more precisely target your staff’s efforts and your marketing dollars.

My passion is staying current on the newest, the coolest, and the most effective marketing strategies in use today and helping marketing executives tailor those to their needs. I’d like to partner with you to boost your return on your marketing dollar in very measurable ways. Some of the ways I can do that include:

Prior to founding Revolve, I built a track record of phenomenal results at the advertising agency I owned for 20 years, Max Advertising. We consistently delivered quantifiable results using stunning concepts, analytics savvy, team leadership and enthusiastic client services.

dsc_1616As CEO and lead client brand strategist, I developed and grew our business across diverse industries, from law and financial services firms to hospitals and healthcare organizations to the food and entertainment industries. Even our most conservative clients, some unsure if they even needed to do marketing, became converts when they saw how effectively a campaign tailored for their audience boosted awareness, engagement, and the bottom line.

A keen interest in how successful companies craft a memorable public image keeps me ahead of the game in this evolving field. I’ve often been asked to speak to executive groups on branding and strategic marketing, and have authored blogs on numerous branding-related topics.

Away from work, I’m still often thinking of cool ways to get branding messages heard. I’m an avid reader; I enjoy spending time with my family; and I like bouncing around ideas with my dog, Wifi.
