What They Say about Us:

Aldo Bensadoun

Chief Executive Officer and Founder ALDO GROUPE
“Robert’s work at ALDO SHOES over ten years was instrumental in helping us build the global brand we are today. Robert’s ability to develop marketing communications at a world-class level and think profoundly about the business was an important asset that continues to pay dividends. Most importantly, his integrity and focus on pushing his team to a higher level supported and enhanced our core values as a company.”

Joey Adler

CEO Diesel Canada - Founder ONEXONE Foundation
“I have had the pleasure of working with Robert for the last few years. I had known of his work and his visionary approach to marketing and creative communications. I can only say that whatever I had heard did not do him justice. He is truly one of the most creative and strategic minds I have ever worked with. That along with his honesty, integrity and pragmatism makes it pure joy when we are collaborating”

Mark Sherman

Chief Executive Officer MEDIA EXPERTS
“Robert Hoppenheim offers a rare mix of creativity and pragmatism, passion and logic, the combination of right and left-brain thinking that is characteristic of the truly great ad men.”

David Segal

“Rob has a wealth of experience both as an executive in large organizations and as an entrepreneur and brand builder.  We are fortunate to have had him help DavidsTea with strategic thinking, marketing communications and savvy visual merchandising tactics that had immediate results at the cash. Most recently Robert helped us develop a profound social marketing platform that encompasses all of our environment efforts and communications. He is highly creative, practical, and a pleasure to work with.”

Kate Roberts

Vice President, Population Services International (PSI) and Founder, YouthAids,
“Rob is a true visionary and a catalyst of global social entrepreneurship. His leadership during the development and creation of the ALDO Fights Aids campaign for YouthAIDS was inspiring and his ability to orchestrate multiple stakeholders and launch the campaign through multiple channels, around the world, all under the most extreme time pressures was uplifting. Robert has made a profound difference in the evolution of cause marketing and his calculated risk taking, leadership and creativity has been a game changer. He continues to work at the cutting edge of brand building and has helped share his experience with students and faculty at major universities across America.”

Inder Bedi

Founder, Creative Director and President MATT&NAT
“Robert has that unique ability to quickly get into the mind and soul of a company, to help define its path and then execute with a brilliant communications strategy and inspiring creative.
The fact that Rob also wants to make the world a better place through his craft tied in well with our ethos and made the process that much more enjoyable.”

Richard Degnan

Zone Vice President of Brand Marketing (North America) THE BODY SHOP
“As well as having an international perspective, Rob is an expert on the nuances of the Canadian retail environment and of the Canadian customer. Because of his strong connections in multiple fields, his ideas were outside the realm of what a brand would traditionally do, which is what I was looking for. Not only was he able to take an idea or opportunity and creatively look at ways that The Body Shop could approach it, but he was also able to offer the tactical and operational support necessary to execute the ideas. In my experience it is easy to find people who can brainstorm ideas that sound sexy and exciting, but it is rare to find someone that can do that with an eye on how it fits in with an overall strategy and how it will be executed and paid for. Rob provides that balance.”

David Cape

President MARCELLE COSMETICS GROUP - President Jewish Federation Montreal (FederationCJA)
"Robert is a savvy marketing executive who approaches problems thoughtfully, and gets discussion focused around solutions that are going to be impactful short-term, and are consistent with branding and long-term direction.  He is able to drive the group beyond the narrow – he gets people focused on critical elements at a high level - with the knowledge that this has to drive implementable actions once key decisions are made".

Oscar Sachs

Founder and CEO Adsplash Media - Sr. Vice President Publisher Relations

"Robert and his team have the rare talent to understand what people need before they know it. As a marketer that is priceless.  From ideation to the delivery stage, Robert is able to mix creativity with a sound and realistic application for the business.
