Meet the Team
Matthew Hallock, President
Matthew believes in the power of great creative. He talks about it all the time, proselytizes it to clients and has built a team dripping with talent. The Voice reflects his tenet that the answer is not social networking and marketing automation — those are just tools. Great advertising was, is and always will be built on great ideas.
In addition to a 25-year career as an advertising creative, he also studies the History of Advertising. Matthew believes it is the best reflection of society’s values at any given time. He has taught the topic for many years at colleges such as Fairfield University, Yale and the School of Visual Arts, New York City. His dual background created the foundation for The Voice, a fertile environment where talented professionals thrive and clients profit. Click here to see his page.

Sam was our first international intern and graduated from our internship program in June. His curious mentality and academic background make him a strong addition to the team. As an account coordinator he is a capable at multi-tasking and is continuously involved with every project at the Voice.
