MatterWest Opens New Office in Portland in Denver

BOSTON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Matter Communications — a Brand Elevation Agency specializing in PR, creative services, digital marketing and strategy — announces significant momentum across its Matter West offices in Boulder, CO and Portland, OR. Growth highlights include new client partnerships in the AI, mobile gaming and software development B2B tech industries. Notable client roster additions include Brainium Studios, Buildable and Natural Intelligence Systems.

As part of a successful strategy to drive growth in 2020 out West, Matter began the year with key leadership appointments, including Maria Brown, General Manager of Matter West. With her team, Maria leads more than 30 talented PR and digital marketing pros, designers and videographers, and oversees a full suite of integrated marketing solutions for brands throughout the burgeoning tech hubs.

“This year, marketing teams are pushing harder than ever to fill the sales funnel due to reduced budgets and limited sales travel,” said Maria Brown, General Manager of Matter West. “Creativity isn’t enough to be selected as an Agency of Record anymore – you must also be nimble, strategic, focused, passionate and have just enough tenacity to see it all through to a successful result.”

Matter West’s momentum has been propelled by new client relationships and expanded programs with disruptive tech companies, including:

  • Brainium Studios, an independent software company that has been crafting mobile games since 2008.
  • Buildable, a software development firm providing end-to-end solutions for a variety of vertical markets.
  • Natural Intelligence Systems, an AI company that built a pattern-based machine learning system that requires very little data so that people can make smarter decisions, faster, and with greater confidence than they can using traditional AI.

“Our partnership with Matter is just that—a partnership,” said Max Delavenne, founder and CEO of Buildable. “As a software development firm with clients around the country and fast-moving, complex projects, we need an external team that operates as part of our own, while bringing fresh perspective and new ideas to the table. We’re glad to be working with Matter across multiple disciplines, from branding to digital strategy and PR, to help our business grow.”

With 200 professionals across offices in Boston and Newburyport, MA, Portsmouth, NH, Providence, RI, Pittsburgh, PA, Boulder, CO, and Portland, OR, Matter is one of the fastest-growing PR, creative services, digital marketing and strategy firms in the country. Matter has won 12 “Agency of the Year” accolades in the past three years and has been consistently recognized as a top place to work.
