Matt Isner

Chief Strategy Officer Matt Isner loves to dive under the surface on projects to find a surprising way to make them authentic, interesting and engaging. He looks at industries like energy and transportation and finds important stories to tell. Matt has honed this strategic eye at CRA since joining in 2001 as an assistant account executive.

A co-owner and one of the leaders in the Richmond office, Matt enjoys taking traditional experience into the digital space, testing messaging and creative, and finding the right audiences. He also thrives on bringing team members together with different expertise, strategies and backgrounds so that we can provide the best overall solutions to our clients. “Together we are smarter,” he likes to say.

What's your favorite project?

Virginia Tourism Corporation | DRIVE Tourism

“I really like working in tourism – we worked on an industry campaign for the Virginia Tourism Corporation which we branded as DRIVE Tourism. We helped more than 20 communities each create the start of a product development plan to become more competitive when working to attract travelers. It was awesome traveling to all of the different regions of our state and working with community members to come to a consensus, developing smart strategies to make them more successful.

Working alongside the video team has also created some of my favorite times at CRA – going out and meeting all different types of people who have these amazing stories to tell. I am pretty flattered that we can help them to tell those stories."
