About the Author
Ryan Holmes is the CEO of Hootsuite, a leading social media management platform.
A serial entrepreneur, Ryan Holmes started his first business in high school, ultimately opening a string of ventures—from a pizza restaurant to a digital media agency—before starting Hootsuite in 2008. As founder and CEO, he has helped grow Hootsuite into one of the most widely-used social relationship platforms in the world, with over 16 million users, including more than 800 of the Fortune 1000 companies.
A supporter of socially conscious ventures, Ryan is proud to have steered Hootsuite to B-Corp status, a distinction awarded to leading for-profit companies with a social and environmental mission. His charity, League of Innovators, offers online and in-person programs for the next generation of entrepreneurs. A future enthusiast (with a love of VR) and the inventor of a low-cost standing desk, he's a hacker at heart—always looking for easier, better, and more efficient ways to solve problems.
