Our mission is your mission.

An agency like no other.

Our culture is built around a single goal: to help our clients transform the lives of people with devastating diseases and the physicians who treat them. So at every level, our decisions are driven by what’s best for your brand—and what’s best for the people who work here.

Innovators. Go-Getters. Friends.

Where else can you learn about gene therapy over a burger, connect with incredible people facing rare diseases, and love what you do all at the same time? We’re energized by the difference our work can make. Whether we’re sweating through a 5K, singing Sweet Caroline at a Sox game, or enjoying one of the many selections of free snacks, the people of CB bring the work to life—and life to work.

Meet the team.

Our people bring impactful experience from diverse backgrounds, including clinical strategy, digital strategy, and consumer and pharmaceutical marketing. Meet some of them below.
