Renny Gleeson
Global Director Interactive Strategies, Weiden & Kennedy

Website | @rgleeson

Renny Gleeson is an entrepreneurial geek. He’s been interactive since he got his TRS-80 RadioShack microcomputer in the ‘70s, and he’s worked all sides of the interactive marketing space-from client, to agency, to publisher. Other work experiences include game design, bistro cook, junk bond sales, the NBA, selling clothing to teenage girls and running agencies.

Since 2007, Renny has led interactive strategy for Wieden + Kennedy, embracing mobility, gaming, software as culture, physical computing and every flavor of “social”. Since no-one knows “what’s next”, he co-founded a constantly evolving technology accelerator/incubator called “PIE” in 2009. PIE has become a brand-backed techno-cultural node in Portland, Oregon, and has housed and/or accelerated nearly thirty companies to date.

In 2010, Renny was appointed to the Wieden+Kennedy global management team, and he works with the W+K global network to operationalize innovation and interactivity.
