John Wilpers

Senior Director USA
Innovation Media Consulting

After 35 years as a writer, editor, and media executive, John has consulted for the last 12 years with media companies around the world helping them transform from unprofitable, depressed, endangered print-centric operations into profitable, energized, multimedia, multi-platform, 24-7 content- and revenue-generation operations.

John’s recent projects include: a multi-title Norwegian B2B publisher, a pan-Asian consumer magazine group, two prominent American B2B media companies, the leading South African media group, an Italian multi-newspaper group, an Indian multi-magazine publisher, a Czech multimedia publisher, and the University of Virginia.

Since 2010, John has been the author and editor of the annual “Innovations in Media World Report” published for the world association of magazines (FIPP).

Outside of media, John runs an international jazz & blues blog (GlobalRhythms.net). John also created a self-esteem-building soccer program for girls ages 2-6, graduating 5,000 girls since 1996 (hotshotssoccer.org). He is also a long-board surfer, gardener, and was “Mother Ginger” in the “Nutcracker” in Boston for 22 years.
