Alex Bogusky

Boulder, CO
Alex Bogusky’s career in began over twenty years ago when he joined a 16-person ad agency called Crispin and Porter. Under Alex's direction, Crispin Porter + Bogusky grew to more than 1,000 employees with offices in Miami, Boulder, Los Angeles, London and Sweden, and with annual billings over $1billion. During Alex’s leadership, CP+B became the world's most awarded advertising agency, and in 2010, Alex received the rare honor of being named "Creative Director of the Decade" by Adweek magazine.

Always drawn towards a cause, Alex created groundbreaking initiatives such as the "Truth" campaign which was named the most successful social advertising campaign in U.S. history. His work with Vice President Al Gore debunked the notion of “Clean Coal.” And in 2011, Alex rebranded The Climate Reality Project and launched 24 Hours of Reality - the most highly viewed streaming web program of its time.  

Since leaving CP+B in 2010, he and his wife, Ana, keep busy investing and advising in over 40 advertising and tech firms including his investor/advisor role for Lyft, the ride-share platform; investor/advisor in Fearless Unlimited, an agency dedicated to positive social change; investor/founder in MadeMovement, an ad agency with a focus on clients that create US jobs; investor/advisor in Humanaut, a marketing agency in Chattanooga; investor/founder at HealthySkoop an organic plant-based nutrition company; founder of Boomtown, a tech-startup accelerator; and general partner in Erli Ventures, an early-stage tech fund.
