Skona

Jenny's career in advertising spans over 20 years. As CEO and co-founder of Skona, Jenny has grown the company from a 2-man boutique agency to a flourishing global business focused on creative work that helps build brave brands in the B2B technology sector.

That company culture has directly influenced the range of successful projects that the agency has produced since 2003.

Apart from managing the day-day business of Skona and the offices in San Francisco and Sweden, Jenny is committed to improving the way B2B brands focus on filling the funnel while often forsaking traditional branding.
