Jenn Stranzl is an experienced marketing executive with a proven track record as a growth accelerator through digital innovation. Across consumer, media and retail industries in Europe and North America, she has led companies through business turnarounds and fast growth.
As CMO of the financial media & data platform, CoinDesk, she attracted the largest-ever audiences to its Consensus conference, bringing millions in revenue (2023: 15K attendees, 2022: 20.5K attendees).
In 2015-17, as marketing leader at Sears Canada, she led the $3 Bn-revenue retail company through an ambitious digital transformation. Thanks to marketing innovations across products, stores and online platforms, sales rapidly reversed a decade of declining revenues.
During her tenure at The Wall Street Journal Online (2001-8), she designed and rolled out an award-winning marketing strategy that turned the brand into the world’s leading paid news media platform, delivering $50 million in subscription revenues annually. In under two years, paying subscribers jumped from 300,000 to 1 million.
