“Too many agencies produce work that wins awards, but doesn’t drive an increase in sales. I wanted to start an agency that did both — great creative work combined with a positive return on investment.” hawkeye’s founder and chairman Steve Dapper was previously Chairman/CEO of both Wunderman and Rapp Collins. Aspiring to head up an agency that combined outstanding creative with outstanding speed-to-market, Steve formed hawkeye. A native of Iowa (the Hawkeye State), Steve has a passion to dig deeper into consumer behavior and apply it to original ideas that deliver meaningful results for our clients. In addition to inspiring our hawkeye team every day, Steve is also currently the chairman of the Direct Marketing Association and its 3,000 members.
