Zach Foster

Zach Foster  Zach leads new business and oversees client relationships with Johnson & Johnson (from medical device to pharma to consumer care), Nestlé and Verizon. Zach joined Brädo in 2014 from New York-based creative agency, Droga5. As Strategy Director, Zach led strategic efforts for Prudential, Puma and Under Armour (named 2014 Marketer of the Year). On Prudential, he shaped the “Challenge Lab” campaign, which earned a Titanium Lion at the Cannes Creativity Festival and helped change the conversation in the financial services category. Prior to Droga5, Zach held strategic posts at San Francisco agencies, Venables Bell & Partners and Goodby Silverstein & Partners. There, Zach created breakthrough strategies for a diverse range of categories, from automotive (Audi and Chevrolet) to tech (Intel, HP, Vizio, Nintendo) to gasoline (ConocoPhillips). 

Through it all, he is most proud of the work on The Meth Project, a bold initiative aimed at preventing teen meth use in high risk states. In addition to being recognized by the White House as a best-in-class campaign, The Meth Project has helped significantly curb teen meth use in six states.

Zach earned a BA from Middlebury College in Vermont. Outside of work, Zach is a proud dad of two crazy little girls, has become hooked on triathlons (he once swam from Europe to Asia), and despite his new home, will always be an avid Boston sports fan. After winning a bet with his St. Louis-born wife on the 2013 World Series, Zach has instituted a “no Cardinals attire” rule for the first year of his daughter’s life.
