Jesse Redniss is senior vice president, digital, for USA Network where he spearheads the channel’s Social TV initiatives, technology innovations, monetization strategies and content development for its digital properties. He is also responsible for expanding successful network executions to other NBCU properties with a focus on gaming.

With his vision and leadership, and the help of the USA digital team, Redniss has firmly established the channel as a trailblazer on several fronts: defining SocialTV and demonstrating best practices with the creation of Character Chatter, the network’s proprietary SocialTV messaging platform; creating USA Anywhere, the network’s second screen companion app; applying gaming mechanics site-wide as best exemplified by the award winning Club Psych; expanding the broadcast narrative off-channel via transmedia storytelling like the award winning graphic novel Burn Notice: A New Day; and launching standalone social games, such as the Emmy nominated PSYCH’s HashTag Killer, which won the Shorty Award for Best Social Media Campaign for Television and the Social TV Summit Award for Best Cable Network SocialTV Award.

Under Redniss’ leadership, the digital team has also gained industry recognition through various awards, including the interactive Emmy for two AdAge Media Vanguard Awards, WebMarketing Association for the Broadcast and TV web site of the year, for more than three years running (2007, 2008 and 2009), the 2008 Beacon Award, and two Addy awards. Redniss was named Social TV Marketer of the year by the Social TV Summit and Multichannel News ranked him as one of the 40 under 40 to watch in the digital world.

Before joining USA, Redniss worked at Tangible Media on the Atari and Midway games accounts and several leading advertising agencies specializing in media planning, buying and interactive strategy. He also held positions within the music industry at Volatile Media andSONY 550DMV.

    Jesse and his team were great! I enjoyed hearing about the process of collaboration to get projects like Hashtag Killer up and running. The presentation really got you on the edge of your seat and wanting to participate.

    I thought the content of the presentation and the exchange was outstanding...for I think some of the best experiences are those that run with a flow and perhaps not as exactly planned and jesse and his colloboraters all delivered value that kept you tuned in.....sorry I couldn't stay for the entire meet!
