Jonathan Mildenhall

Jonathan Mildenhall is co-founder and CEO of TwentyFirstCenturyBrand, where he helps high-profile startups and venture-capital firms in their creative and business strategy initiatives. Jonathan was named number 8 in Forbes' list of the world's most influential CMOs. He is the former Chief Marketing Officer of Airbnb and led the Coca-Cola Company’s marketing initiatives from 2007-13 as VP of global advertising and content excellence.

Mildenhall draws from his previous experiences to share strategies on creativity, corporate social responsibility, and branding with audiences around the world. A champion of accelerating diversity in advertising, he also equips audiences with genuine ideas and insights on the role of disruption, creativity, inclusivity, and purposeful branding in sparking positive change and uniting humanity around a movement.

In 2016, Mildenhall was named to the Financial Times’ top 100 Upstanding Leaders’ List, a collection of leading ethnic minority executives in the U.S. and U.K. He was also listed at No. 14 on the 2015 Power List by PR Week and previously made the “pink list” (now the Rainbow List) of the most influential LGBT figures in the U.K. by The Independent. Mildenhall was chair of the Institute of Practitioners in Advertising (IPA) Diversity Community in the mid-2000s, during which time he sought to increase the number of African-American advertising workers in the sector.
