Our Founders

Jack Ebert

Founder

Jack Ebert was in the middle of studying abroad in London when the pandemic forced him to travel back to the states and continue pursuing Quinnipiac University 3+1 MBA in a completely remote format. Hailing from Northport, New York, Jack also watched as his hometown community– which is dominated by local shops and boutiques– was suffering shutdown after shutdown. He just wanted to help empower them. At the same time, Jack realized that his internship opportunity was no longer available due to COVID-19. A light-bulb went off, and he realized he could combine the two. Jack conceptualized, launched, and operates the ins and outs of Driven Media Management & Consulting. He has overseen the growth of the Driven team, and the acquisition of clients, and directly works on nearly every client account. He has also since graduated from Quinnipiac University with his MBA and is a trusted agency partner of the university.

Kat Buczek, Co- Founder, Creative Director

Katharina Buczek

Co-Founder

  1. Katharina Buczek co-founded Driven Media in the midst of her junior year at Stony Brook University. After the COVID-19 pandemic shutdown in-person work and schooling, Katharina and millions of other students were thrust into novel online formats. Jack Ebert approached her with the idea of creating a business with a multi-faceted mission  of both empowering small businesses who suffered due to the pandemic and providing unique hands-on internship experience to college students who were left without experiential learning opportunities. Since co-founding Driven Media in 2020 and becoming the company’s Creative Director, Katharina has managed the creation and publication of all internal media, overseen all creative client accounts, and took over the Community Collective– a non-profit that partners with queer artists to give back to instrumental organizations in the LGBTQIA+ community. She also graduated Summa Cum Laude from Stony Brook University with a B.A. in Journalism and has accepted a position as a full-time Staff Reporter at a digital news outlet.
