John E Ward

As a senior marketing leader with over 20 years experience, I’ve had the privilege of leading teams in-house at internationally recognized brands such as American Apparel, Vespa Motorscooters, and SUPRA Footwear as well as enjoying being an early pioneer in digital and e-commerce. In addition to in-house experiences, I have worked at noted communications agencies with clients such as UCLA, University of Oregon, NHL Hockey and Volcom.

SOME NOTED ACCOMPLISHMENTS:
*Organizational*
– Transformed organizations and cultures with new thinking, approaches and processes
– Known as a connector bringing people and related partners together
– Recognized as being comfortable moving from boardroom to board-shop
– Writer on subjects of business culture, integrity and people value
– Built in-house and outsourced teams
– Co-founded my own communications agency
– Co-founded my own retail store

*Brand & Communications*
– Redefined positioning for noted brands
– Negotiated partnership agreements
– Managed P&Ls as well as 7 figure advertising budgets
– Opening up e-commerce businesses in European and Asian markets
– Grew direct businesses from $10 million to over $50 million
– Launched global integrated campaigns

Blend of brand, agency and entrepreneurial background across industries such as fashion, retail, consumer products and higher education bring a unique perspective. These experiences have afforded me unique insight into youth and emerging markets. I have also developed a reputation for identifying opportunities using an ROI focus with brand promotion to grow businesses.
