Matt Kucharski

President, Padilla


As president of the Minneapolis-based communications agency, Matt Kucharski has planned and implemented strategic communications, brand building, and reputation management for clients across Padilla’s six nationwide offices. In 2020, he led development of Return-to-Work, a strategic process to help organizations operate effectively under Covid-19 restrictions, helping clients pivot their strategic thinking, adjust operations, and respond quickly to internal and external stakeholders.

Under Kucharski’s leadership, Padilla’s diversity and inclusion council launched a revised program last year focused on recruitment and retention. The program also included unconscious-bias training for employees.
