Matthew Bennett

Co-Founder & Chief Creative Officer of ZAK Media Group

Matthew started his career in marketing as a creative and has over 18 years experience in advertising, brand strategy, marketing communications and product design. Naturally strategic Matthew soon moved into broader, senior management roles covering most disciplines of agency life. Matthew has extremely strong sector experience in sport, leisure, food, beverage and FMCG gained from working for award winning agencies, as well as running his own creative and strategic marketing agency where he managed a variety of Pan European, blue chip brands. There were strong synergies with Matthew and Joanna’s businesses so in 2011, they set up ZAK Media Group as a vehicle to develop and grow boutique marketing agencies.

Matthew is a believer that brands, products and services live and die in the mind of their audience and not their marketing department, so he advocates creating ideas aimed at changing or affirming consumers’ perceptions first and foremost. Responsible for the creative (and strategic) output of the group, Matthew challenges everyone to start and end their day with creativity in mind.
