Hank is an entrepreneur turned musician turned adman turned entrepreneur (turns out he had it right the first time).
Hank is co-founder and CEO of GonnaBe (launching early March 2012). He is also the founder of Phone2Food.org, a philanthropic organization aimed at fighting famine in East Africa through donated electronics.
Previously, Hank founded Agency Nil - the world’s first crowdsourcing-based advertising agency. Shortly thereafter he joined ad agency McKinney to work on Nationwide Insurance, Coldwell Banker, Sherwin Williams, and Travelocity - for which he won the Jay Chiat Award for Strategic Excellence in 2010 (he put the gnome on Chatroulette and earned 20MM media impressions for $0.00).
In addition to these efforts, Hank toured in and managed a rock band for 5 years, taught snowboarding seasonally for 5 years, and hits a mean golf ball.
Hank holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in English from the College of William and Mary and a Master of Science degree in Mass Communications from the VCU Brandcenter - Communications Strategy track.
