Located in the Artist Building at 300 Summer Street in Boston's Innovation District, we help clients make smart decisions about digital strategies, and then execute on those plans. Our firm’s principals – David Polcaro and Tim Bourgeois – are two grizzled veterans of the digital industry, and bring more than a decade of experience each to every client engagement.

ECC’s primary offerings include digital strategy, user experience and design, and digital marketing optimization services. Our client experience spans the spectrum of multinational behemoths to bootstrapped start-ups, and our current roster includes the likes of Apperian, Attivio, Fortis College, Paradigm4, Resolution (an Omnicom company), and Signiant.

We like to think our name reflects our core philosophy: we balance East Coast analytical rigor with a focus on moving fast to Catalyze our clients’ businesses. 


What We Want You To Know About Us

We work fast. We work efficiently. We respect principles that we know govern digital business, like "Ready - Fire - Aim". 

We're a small team whose members pride themselves on being multi-disciplined and fast-learners. Having worked for big companies, and managed a mid-sized firm for many years, we know this is our sweet spot: as a Task Force. We may be small, but we have tentacles in every conceivable corner of the digital industry. Our vast reach, in part due to the global community of digital professionals we manage at ChiefDigitalOfficer.net, is one of our competitive advantages. 

Our real expertise lies in our skills as digital strategists, interactive producers, and project managers. We get digital stuff done, and done well.
