December 2008 - July 2013 (4 years 7 months)
After over 20 years of being the guiding spirit behind all the various evolutions of Mobium, my partner, co-worker and friend Gordon Hochhalter is retiring from the company..

Through the ups and downs of this crazy industry, Gordon has always managed to bring a unique, heart-felt perspective to business communications, one that respected the traditional marketing dogma but on the flip side has been always open to tearing down the old and bringing in the new.

His approach has always been tempered by a firm eye on the future and how all of us as communicators need to adapt or die. He's the Father of Mobium's full-circle process that has provided strong direction for many client brands over the years and the not-so absent-minded professor behind Mobium "U."

He's been a mentor for numerous Mobium employees (including myself) and has played a major role in building Mobium's reputation as a highly creative brand among B2B agencies. His strategic insight, creative leadership and devotion to Mobium will be greatly missed.

One fact about him you may not be aware of, Gordon has also been personally responsible for keeping the Uni-Ball line of blue felt tipped pens alive for the past 25 years.
