Ryan Gill

CEO, Communo

Ryan Gill is the CEO of Communo, a curated, membership-based community of carefully vetted marketing, creative and digital professionals who give and get work within a sharing economy. He is the co-founder and past president of Cult Collective, an international engagement agency, and co-founder of The Gathering, a world-class annual summit that brings together some of the top CMOs, biggest brands and 1,000 delegates to the mountain resort town of Banff, Alberta. He’s a thought leader on the sharing economy and was a featured speaker at the recent BC AMA Future of Marketing Panel, 2018 SXSW conference and Creative Mornings Vancouver. He’s interviewed regularly about entrepreneurial life, the gig /sharing economy and how the “little guy” can win. Gill has published two books; Community, Inc., a guidebook for creative entrepreneurs, and Fix: Break The Addiction that’s Killing Brands. Ryan got his start in digital marketing and his first company, Suitcase Interactive, was a consistent best digital agency award winner. His tenacity and forward thinking also led him, personally, to being awarded a coveted place on the auspicious 30 under 30 list. Eleven years ago he founded Project Smile, a charitable initiative that sees he and his employees make an annual service trip to over a dozen impoverished communities outside of Mazatlan, Mexico. Most importantly, he’s a husband and father of two little girls.
