Fox, Gretchen

I am CEO and Founder at MTO Agency [made to order], a full-service social media agency that brings brands to life online and drives digital sales. I've spent the past 15 years in the Entertainment, Sports and Technology verticals -- and often, the confluence of the three. Prior to launching MTO, I was Vice President of Social Media at Live Nation Entertainment where I built an in-house social agency to service the biggest performing artists in the world and lead the training of over one hundred field marketers across North America. Prior to that, I worked in Silicon Valley tech, where I launched one of the first Social TV technologies in history creating innovative digital experiences for AELTC’s Wimbledon, NBC’s Winter Olympics, IndyCar Race Control properties and more.
