Trevor founded Butchershop in 2009, in the middle of a recession and tech revolution. He has grown the company from a team of 3 in San Francisco to a globally operated company. As CEO, his vision keeps the agency out in front of industry trends, shifts in business models, and movements in culture and commerce.
His leadership has shaped Butchershop’s unique trajectory, where brand, customer experience, and organizational design cohere to help companies launch, grow, ideate, or evolve. He has pioneered approaches to brand building for businesses with venture and private equity growth models and has led creative solutions for some of Silicon Valley’s most successful IPOs and exits. He has helped both new founders and leaders within legacy companies invent products and build multi-million dollar commercial partnerships.
He believes the most powerful brands are built on simplicity and have a singular story that ties their business, brand, and internal company culture together. “Simple is hard” is a Butchershop mantra and something he says often. It’s also a neon sign in our lobby.
Trevor has a background in documentary film, advertising, and systems design. After 20 years in the creative business, he still loves seeing a client’s face when we crack the problem and fundamentally change their brand for the better.
