Career highlights

Starting Digitas in 1996. Hiring people who are better than me (Mark Beeching, Laura Lang, Curt Hecht, Kathy Dyer, and hundreds more.) Living with clients during tough crises. Having the audacity to create VivaKi with Jack Klues.

Favourite TV programme

Meteo on TV5 Monde (I know all of the French weather words, so I feel fluent.)

Newspaper

The Wall Street Journal.

Magazine

Paris Match.

Website

Facebook (my friends are fun).

Favourite recent marketing campaign

Strauchnie – the Mars \"football slacker\" in Australia.

Favourite brand

American Express is always about what they can do for others – I love the service ethic of this brand.

What’s your concession to the recession?

My bonus.

Who would play you in a movie?

Rowan Atkinson.

Party trick

I let my wife do the talking. The more she shares embarrassing stories about me, the more people laugh.

Hobbies

I am still trying to learn the subjunctive tense in French. And I love to make really clever home movies on iMovie, even though I use too many transition effects.

What gadget do you think should be invented?

A honing signal for taxis (this could be a iPhone app instead of a gadget.)

You’ve got one last Tweet before you die. What do you Tweet?

\"Au revoir. (Dying is for mortals.)\"

Lowdown

Kenny has probably been hearing the word Razorfish in his sleep this year. Not only was the VivaKi head honcho instrumental in the deal, but he's also been tasked with integrating the digital giant into his business.

Born

11 October 1961, Michigan USA.
