ABOUT THE COMPANY

Fohr takes pride in taking principals (*and people*) from more established areas of marketing and advertising to drive influencer marketing forward. In many ways it's still the wild west, and a lot of sponsored content out there is shockingly bad, but it's also an explosive and when done well is incredibly powerful.

We have a BEAUTIFUL renovated factory style office in the LES filled with around 35 wonderful, smart humans, many of which have been here for a couple of years. They've come from places like Milk, Virgin, Anomoly, BBDO, Dentsu. I personally have been with the company for 6.

We work with brands like Headspace, Sephora, Lego, Supergoop, Neiman Marcus (+ many many more) on their influencer strategy and campaign execution. We host education workshops, we have a web series and podcast, and we also run unpaid initiatives like InfluenceTheElection, a very successful effort to mobilize influencers to increase voter turnout for the mid-terms. We are human / vision lead but data backed and we have big plans for 2020.
