President and Copywriter of Connelly Partners - USA
Since founding Connelly Partners in 1999, Steve has methodically built a company based on empathy, humanity, creativity and curiosity. Connelly Partners has doubled down on defending humanity in a business that increasingly marginalizes it. Headquartered in Boston, with offices in Dublin and Vancouver, the agency is independent and outside the restrictions of a holding company. Steve and Connelly Partners believe in using anthropology to solve business challenges for brands including Titleist, Gorton’s Seafood, Williamsburg Tourism Council, Audi Ireland and more. The prototypical “Everyman,” Steve has used his gifts for human insights and his passion for connecting with people to create not just a growing business, but also a working environment and culture of humanity that has been recognized by AdAge and Boston Business Journal. Before Connelly Partners, Steve worked at several of Boston’s top agencies. Steve is a copywriter by trade, and outside of the office, can be found coaching high school basketball.
