Oliver Brenninkmeyer

CEO / Founder

Oliver Brenninkmeyer

Oliver Brenninkmeyer has flourished as an inventive collaborator, augmenting businesses to their peak performance through exploration and discovery and his own professional story clearly mirrors what he contributes to the enterprises he leads. Originally based in Europe, he cut his teeth learning every facet of retail, consumer product strategy and brand building, before moving to the U.S. in the 1990’s. His dynamic career path brought him to work for iconic companies such as Disney and DreamWorks Animation where he grew into various leadership roles gaining exposure into global market analysis, consumer product positioning, researching and analyzing unfamiliar markets and planning growth strategy.

As a leader and mentor, he appreciates creative, innovative and landscape-changing ideas, working with a collaborative approach in an exploration that ultimately leads to a fully customizable service arrangement, or what he likes to call a “true partnership.” Oliver has a passion for motorcycles and loves the freedom biking gives him to clear his mind while on the road. He’s particularly fond of his custom Harley fat boy a.k.a “The Flying Dutch Man.”
