Founder & Chief Creative Officer
Jeff Charney is one of the nation's most heralded, disruptive CMO’s as well a provocative sought-out speaker. As CMO of Progressive Insurance, he and his team developed many of the nation's top brand icons including the iconic salesclerk (“Flo”), the ‘we all become our parents’ parenta-life coach, “Dr. Rick” as well as the half salesclerk (Flo) and half NBA star (LeBron James), “Flo-Bron.” Earlier, he was in charge of the iconic —"Aflac Duck” -- currently the nation's longest running marketing icon.
A two-time "CMO of the Year," (from both Ad Age and AdWeek) and international award winner, he left corporate America at the top of his game last year with Progressive to start an "invite only" nationwide marketing collective called MKHSTRY. This new game-changing start-up follows a scarcity model working only with the bravest founders, brands, and individuals to disrupt existing business models to indeed –Make History—similar to that of code cracking companies like, Uber, OpenAI, Spotify, Tesla, Airbnb, etc.
Despite being in high demand, Jeff limits his presentations, which will give this FutureLAND audience an exclusive, behind the scenes look at the inner workings of a company that will truly...MKHSTRY.
His interactive keynote-- “Building a historic brand vs. “15 minutes of fame” --will enable us all to fully understand why “relevance” will always be the most important nine-letter word in marketing. Buckle up!
