Speaker Bio
Reonna is the VP / Director of Marketing & Business Development at RPA in Santa Monica, CA. She started her marketing career nearly 20 years ago as an executive assistant at Capitol Records and Fox Television Stations. She later moved to corporate marketing at an executive recruitment firm, where she managed a global talent magazine and worked directly under the Global CMO.

After a decade of success in corporate marketing, Reonna moved into advertising at a time of momentous change in B2B marketing. She joined the new business team at mcgarrybowen, a creative agency in NYC. While there she utilized her B2B corporate experience for agency marketing and contributed to the agency new business wins for Maserati, Pizza Hut, Intel and Burt’s Bee – just to name a few.

By nature, Reonna is a community organizer that gets shit done. She has a natural gift of processing complex problems and ideas into tangible / digestible solutions. With that, in 2018, she cofounded the organization Three’s a Crowd, which is focused on Black creative professionals owning your Blackness within their predominately white career structures. Reonna spearheaded a Three’s a Crowd initiative in June 2020 called, IN FOR 13, that’s focused on actionably stomping out systemic racism in the advertising industry by raising the percentage of Black bodies in senior leadership positions to 13% (reflective of the Black US population) by 2023.
