"I’m proud of Habu's team, technology, and the work we are doing with innovative, data driven brands, as this will shape the future of data collaboration in a privacy first era."

Matt Kilmartin

Matt Kilmartin is passionate about entrepreneurship and developing technology to help brands in their digital transformation... so much so that he has dedicated 20 years of his career working for innovative software and data companies.

Our four founders

Our four founders are veterans in the marketing technology industry: Tom Chavez, Vivek Vaidya, Matt Kilmartin, and Mike Moreau.

Tom Chavez and Vivek Vaidya, are also co-founders of super{set}, which played a tremendous role in launching and growing Habu.

Habu Founders crop

Habu is a great example of the super{set} model in practice; the company would not be this far along if it had followed a conventional venture-backed path.

Matt Kilmartin is the CEO and co-founder of Habu, and Tom and Vivek remain actively involved.

Mike Moreau serves as Habu’s COO and co-founder. Tom, Vivek, Matt, Mike, and several members of the team worked together for a number of years at Krux before it was acquired by Salesforce in 2016.
