Matthew Owens grew up in the advertising industry and has been in the business for over 25 years. As the son of Bill Owens, the founder and owner of the long-time Valley advertising agency Owens & Associates, Matt received an early education in marketing and advertising in Arizona.
After graduating from Woodbury University in Los Angeles with a degree in marketing, he worked for Owens & Associates for many years, including a stint as general manager of the firm’s Albuquerque office. He then moved to the Pacific Northwest to work in the e-commerce and dot-com industries.
Now, Matt has partnered with his long-time friend and media expert, Scott Harkey. Together, they are building the kind of marketing services firm Matt has always envisioned. As partner, Matt’s core responsibilities lie in marketing strategy and advertising planning, media services, account supervision and creative direction.
Matt has succeeded in doubling Owens Harkey Advertising’s business in 2008 with the help of his revolutionary branding strategy system. He has also made a commitment to working with nonprofits and currently sits on marketing committees and boards of directors for many local organizations and charities.
Matt likes to stay informed and educated on all aspects of the marketing and advertising world and on any given day he’ll be teaching the staff, learning, brainstorming, taking field trips or any other out-of-the-box technique to improve and continue to grow Owens Harkey Advertising.
