Jeff Dachis, the Internet-consulting mogul who helped establish Razorfish in the ’90s, made a name for himself by declaring that “everything that can be digital, will be.” Now, after last speaking at an Ad Fed event in March of 2000, Dachis is back with some retrospect on the immense impact the digital revolution has had on our lives. Don’t miss it!
As founder and CEO of Dachis Group, Jeff’s leadership and vision helped establish the digital services industry more than a decade ago when he co-founded Razorfish, Inc. out of a one-bedroom New York City apartment. Dachis Group is the worlds leading Social Business consultancy helping large organizations become more connected, communicative, participatory, and engaged with their constituents in an increasingly technology driven global economy.
As co-founder, CEO, President and Chairman of Razorfish, Dachis profitably grew the company revenues to over $250 Million, expanded its talent base from 2 to 2,200 employees with offices in nine countries, completed over 25 M&A transactions, led its IPO which raised $55 Million, and catapulted Razorfish’s public valuation to over $5 Billion.
Over the last decade, as the recognized leader in the digital services industry, Razorfish has won numerous performance, design, and professional service awards. Razorfish ultimately was bundled as part of Microsoft’s $6 billion purchase of aQuantive, and more recently was spun off and sold to Publicis for $530 million.
Dachis is also a Senior Partner at Manhattan-based Bond Art + Science, which specializes in information architecture and user experience design for digital media and information services. He serves as an advisor to companies including Bazaarvoice and Waterfall Mobile.
Jeff has also served as Co-Chairman of the Producer’s Guild of America New Media Council East, and has frequently appeared as a lecturer and speaker, and in publications such as the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, Business Week, and Wired Magazine and in television appearances including CNBC, CNN, 20/20 and 60 Minutes.
