About John Winsor
VP/Executive Director of Strategy and Innovation, CPB
John Winsor is a leading marketing and product innovation thinker especially known for his work in collaboration, co-creation and crowdsourcing. He is also a respected author of Spark: Be more Innovative through Co-Creation and Beyond the Brand: Why Engaging the Right Customers is Essential to Winning in Business. This fall Winsor will introduce two new books. First, Baked In: The Power of Aligning Marketing and Product Innovation, co-authored by Alex Bogusky, released in September and Flipped: How Bottom-Up Co-creation is Replacing Top-Down Innovation, released in December.
Currently, he is the VP/Executive Director of Strategy and Innovation at Crispin, Porter + Bogusky helping the company become the most awarded advertising agency in the world for the last two years. In 2007, Winsor sold his company, Radar Communications, to CP+B. He founded Radar in 1998 with Nike as its first client. Using strategy and academic-based market intelligence tools, Winsor helped some of the country's most progressive companies learn from key voices in their communities through methods he gleaned from his years as a journalist. Prior to founding Radar, Winsor built a magazine publishing company devoted to sports such as mountain biking, in-line skating, and extreme skiing. In 1990, he acquired the rights to publish a then-struggling magazine, Women's Sports & Fitness. Within three years he turned the magazine around and launched several other highly profitable titles and events including The Gravity Games, selling the business to Conde Nast in 1997.
He also writes a well-known blog, Cultural Radar: http://www.johnwinsor.com
