Erik Mathre

Red Letter Communications is pleased to announce the hiring of Erik Mathre as VP, Creative Director.  The result of an extensive search, Mr. Mathre brings an impressive resume, positive attitude and the talent needed to continue the agency’s legacy of outstanding and results-oriented creative messaging.

In Erik, I think we’ve found an ideal solution and leader.”
