Richard Bumgarner 

Business Owner & Chief Creative Officer

Obsession is bad in a roommate. But it’s exactly what you want in the guy leading marketing for your company and brand. Richard has been taking charge (and names) in marketing and advertising for 20+ years. He’s done a little bit of everything for clients in just about any vertical you can think of—and left a trail of strong performance and surpassed expectations, including:


  • 7% of prospect marketing budget driving 20% of new member enrollments, and 3% of customer budget driving 85% of members retained

  • 85% YoY growth in new individual sales and 21% gain in market share

  • $2M marketing spend resulting in $13.5M ROI


In 2012 Richard opened the doors to HERO Marketing—a data-driven marketing agency right in the heart of San Francisco. Unlike most agencies that say they practice “media neutrality” and create “paradigm-shifting work,” Richard and his team like to say, “Our product is desired results and happy clients.”


For Richard, being a HERO means loving what you do and doing your best possible work every day—even in ways that people don’t notice. Whether it’s a scrappy startup or household brand, he sees every client as a valued partner and a big part of HERO’s success. He’s also proud of the fact that each and every one of HERO’s clients is either a former client or a referral.
