Phillip Haid co-founded PUBLIC in 2008, to disrupt the way companies, charities, governments and consumers/citizens think about public engagement and doing “good”. Driven by a passion to prove that profit and purpose must go hand in hand to generate large scale social impact, he set out to build a hybrid company – part marketing agency/part consultancy/part accelerator – that creates social impact through public engagement, fundraising, advocacy and volunteer engagement programs, campaigns and businesses. As CEO, he is responsible for overseeing the strategic and creative growth of the business. Phillip is a columnist for Fast Company and the Financial Post writing on “profit with purpose”. PUBLIC’s clients and partners include: Under Armour, Maple Leaf Foods, Kruger, CIBC, TruLeaf, CoPower, Meridian Credit Union, and the Public Health Agency of Canada.
