Meet the Team:

John Keehler

Partner & Dir. of Strategy & Insights

Considered an industry-leading expert in digital strategy, emerging technology, and social media, John is known for always finding new ways to blur the line between strategy, creative and user experience. With over two decades of experience, he’s been a part of the digital marketing landscape since the early days. Working with Fortune 500 companies and startups alike – his passion for anticipating and embracing digital platforms has helped build and inspire great digital campaigns, growing traffic and revenue for clients.

John joined RUNNER as Partner and Director of Strategy after a lengthy stint as Group Head of Digital Strategy at The Richards Group. During his time at The Richards Group (and beyond), he racked up a roster of clients that would make most strategists jealous, including Chick-fil-A, Travelocity, The Home Depot and Chrysler.

When he’s not leading the charge in helping clients achieve the most optimal results in online engagement, John keeps busy by adding to his equally-impressive list of accomplishments and accolades, which includes making it onto Dallas Business Journal’s “40 Under 40” list of influential young leaders, teaching MBA candidates at Southern Methodist University, mentoring entrepreneurs at Tech Wildcatters – the top B2B startup accelerator in the country, according to Forbes.

Even in his spare time, John doesn’t stray too far from all things digital. He swears that one day he’ll find the time to fully unplug and get in some fly fishing time on his favorite stream… and we almost believe him.
