MINNEAPOLIS (Apr. 20, 2021) – Matt Kucharski, Padilla president, is one of 32 individuals recognized by Twin Cities Business in the inaugural class of 2021 Notable Executives in Marketing.
Rising through the ranks to become president in 2017, Kucharski’s seen the agency transformed during his 32-year tenure – from a Twin Cities PR stalwart into a communications powerhouse with six offices nationwide.
Matt’s leadership was tested immensely in 2020 – a year defined by COVID-19, racial unrest and political divisiveness. Along with typical agency assignments, clients called on Padilla for strategic counsel to face new communications challenges brought on by the pandemic.
Despite external challenges, Padilla achieved successes in 2020, earning a national PRWeek Award and two North American SABRE Awards, some of the PR industry’s highest honors. Padilla also added new clients, including Dole Food Company and Winnebago Industries.
Matt serves as chair of Pheasants Forever/Quail Forever and is on the board of the Greater Twin Cities United Way.
