We are Fohr: an influencer marketing platform

We hate buzzwords and bullshit, so here is what we do and don't do:

We've built a self-serve platform that allows you to run the best influencer marketing campaigns imaginable. It lets you find influencers (over 100,000 of them), get verified analytics, and find out if they have fake followers. It gives you their emails, phone numbers (does anyone call people anymore?), and addresses. It can tell you detailed demographic information about their followers, like where they are from, and how much money they make. It lets you pull reports, do competitor research, and find stats on a hashtag, brand name, or interest. It lets you make lists of influencers and export those to a .csv or beautiful PDF. It can even calculate the EMV (earned media value) of the coverage your brand receives from influencers.

Sound good so far?

Well, you can also brief influencers on a campaign, make offers, send emails to groups of influencers, and when it’s all said and done, pull a full report. It’s supported by account managers who have been working with influencers since they were called bloggers. We would be happy to give you a walkthrough where you can learn more.

We also run managed campaigns. End to end, from start to finish, initial idea to final report. We use technology every step of the way to make these campaigns more efficient and effective: pricing algorithms to make sure you're paying what you should be; tools that make sure you don't pay for fake followers; optimization for repeat impressions or total unique reach. We work on Instagram, YouTube, blogs, Pinterest, hell even Tumblr if you're feeling nostalgic. We can help with creative. We give you in-depth reporting, tracking click-through, impressions, engagements, and sales. We run campaigns from $25,000 to over a million dollars, from one influencer to 4,000.

Here’s what we don’t do: we don't help market your migraine pills or detox tea. We don’t represent influencers, and so we don't try and keep you from having a direct relationship with the influencers you work with. We don't make money by upcharging on what an influencer gets paid. We have never under-delivered on a campaign. We don't like assholes, so we don't employ any of them.

We support influencers. We are nothing without our influencer community, and we act accordingly. Every influencer gets their own Fohr profile page, expanded information about who makes up their following, and verification tools to make sure their followings are authentic. We also try and spread the knowledge we have, with a weekly show called Drink with James, quarterly influencer events like Fohr U's and Five and Wine's. What else you ask? How about access to the hundreds of brands—and millions of dollars, that we pay out to influencers every year.

If you're a brand or an influencer we want you to join us at Fohr, and we’re not afraid to say so.

Our Team

James Nord
James doesn’t remember much about his life before Fohr, but knows he started 10 years ago on Wall Street, somehow ended up as Oscar de la Renta’s house photographer and 8 years ago started Fohr with Rich to help more people live out their wildest dreams. He wants you to know how much he loves his job.
Grace Murray
Grace joined Fohr in its infancy and has been instrumental in our growth over the years. She launched our managed campaigns business and has built, sold and executed more influencer campaigns than nearly any person on earth. Someone once called her “human champange” and she’s pretty proud of that.
Emma Gonzalez
After eight years working at a full service advertising agency in Australia, Emma made the move across the ocean to New York to join Fohr (read her and Grace’s story, it’s great). For years, Emma ran the platform side of the business, helping hundreds of clients better execute their influencer strategies. Today she has the same mission but also a team of people to help her and our clients achieve it.
Micah Plevyak
Micah and James were roommates in college and James used this personal relationship as ammunition in his bid to get Micah to leave a lucrative career in Fortune 100 corporate finance to join Fohr. We asked Micah to explain his job and he said he “leads our finance activities and many of our process improvement initiatives” which is his way of saying he keeps the boat afloat. He holds an MBA and Masters in Finance from Boston College, and the only thing he loves more than Fohr is Excel.
Stephanie Rubin
Stephanie joined the Fohr team after her time working with luxury health & wellness brands at Robb Report Magazine. A Boston University graduate, Stephanie earned a degree in psychology. In her spare time you can find her spinning, eating avocados, on a beach somewhere, or running around her beloved hometown with friends and family. She is a Manhattan native (and proud of it).
Nell Goddard
Nell joined the Fohr team after living out her Mad Men dreams working at an ad agency on the Mercedes-Benz account for 2 years. She graduated from Hamilton College where she studied International Relations and Spanish but has since fallen in love with the advertising world.

Brandon Wagoner
Originally from southern California, Brandon moved to New York to fulfill his destiny of becoming Chandler Bing. He comes from a creative agency background working in production and account management for national retail brands such as PetSmart and Kohl’s. On the weekend, you can probably find him at brunch… or at brunch.
Suzannah Tarkington
Suzannah is an Atlanta transplant who moved to New York 6 years ago to attend Parsons School for Design. Her career launched in the world of luxury PR working with brands such as Marimekko, John Hardy and Veuve Cliquot before she joined the account management team at a creative agency focused on hospitality, fashion and beauty.

Specializing in the execution of at-scale and ambassador programs, she’s worked across a variety of verticals and brands including Google, Sephora, Fujifilm, and Tanqueray.

He's obsessed with yoga, film, and all things pop culture.
Leonardo Bighi
Bighi grew up in Rio de Janeiro and knew he would be a software engineer since he got his first computer as a kid. It was love at first sight. With more than 10 years of experience, he came to Fohr after managing a team in a successful startup in Brazil. When not working, he can be seen riding a motorcycle and writing books, but not both at the same time. Safety first.
Kelsea Woods
Elomar Santos
Elomar is a passionate software developer from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. He first saw the magic that software can do at the tender age of 5 when he played a videogame for the first time. He was hooked ever since, and he still believes that software can make the world a better place. Sometimes that means taking some folks to a giant rock floating in the space, and sometimes it's nothing more than putting a smile on someone's face.
Samantha Chau
Samantha is a Parsons graduate with a degree in Strategic Design & Management. Before joining Fohr, she worked in the fashion industry at magazines such as Vogue, Vanity Fair, Allure, and Departures.

Ellie Saballos
Sheila O'Donnell
Sheila joined Fohr after several years of living in London, China, and Spain, and working in the travel industry. She studied International Relations but became interested in tech after a frustrating website experience led to a Google search entitled 'what makes a website bad?'. She was hooked ever since.

Leonardo Brito
Leonardo is a Rio de Janeiro native and proud father of two girls. He arrived at Fohr as a software developer with 15 years of experience in writing clean code and solving performance bottlenecks. While not in the kitchen prepping exquisite meals for the family, he can be found on a hammock serving as cat pillow and reading.
