Jonah D. Ansell co-founded, served as CMO and sold his first company, Rivalfish, Inc. an entertainment brand, to National Lampoon at age 25.  Featured in Entrepreneur and PRWeek, Ansell and his co-founders were hailed as “marketing geniuses” by the Chicago Tribune’s Red Eye.  Rivalfish was nominated for a Chicago Innovation Award by the Chicago Sun-Times for the Ansell-directed Fish Fry, an original 22-minute TV pilot. The firm’s online magazine attracted 150,000 unique readers each month, with original content featured online at Sports Illustrated, Deadspin, Yahoo! Sports, ESPN and FHM. Ansell then went on to lead global business development + marketing for an Omnicom social media marketing firm, tripling the company’s revenue and employee size in just under two years. There, he helped land clients such as Microsoft, Hyatt, Subway, Unilever and Nissan, and conceived of a social media measurement index that went on to win the 2011 Iron SABRE Product of the Year. He rejected an offer to become equity partner in the firm to go on and launch his second company, JAMS, a boutique marketing and production company based in Los Angeles and Sacramento. At JAMS, Ansell serves as founder and Chief Marketing Officer (Chief Storyteller) strategically and creatively advising corporations, SMBs and government agencies, to tell stories that sell.  In conjunction with his client work, Ansell develops original projects for film and TV.  Sample highlights from his work at JAMS include creating “A Must Attend Event of New York Fashion Week” (NYTimes) and being invited to Comic-Con as a featured speaker on the “creative process.”
