Grey Matter Marketing is not ordinary.

We don't play it safe. We’re bold and brave. We embrace the tough and uncomfortable.

Because we believe patient care can be better. Today it’s not enough to be different; you have to make a difference. Sameness doesn’t build greatness. We help our clients succeed by doing what matters to improve patient lives and the delivery of healthcare.

The Grey Matter Difference

We get medical device and technology. We are comprised of true industry veterans. We have walked in your shoes and know what keeps you up at night.

We are lean, nimble and scalable. We perform at a level you need without the cost or sluggishness of a big agency. You always get the A-team.

We can serve as a strategic marketing partner, tactical executor, or interim corporate marketing role to address your critical business needs.

The Grey Matter Team

We bring insight, deep functional expertise, and a proven approach to deliver a real impact. 
Our clients expect exceptional results from us and we succeed by helping them do what matters.
