    The University of Kansas Edwards Campus, in partnership with the KC Tech Council welcomes you to the February edition of the Tech CEO Speaker Series. This six event series is part of the University’s professional development program and will highlight the leadership of those individuals who are currently, or have previously been at the helm of technology companies.
    We are very excited to be holding the next edition of the Tech CEO Speaker Event with Jon Cook, CEO of VML.
    A driving force at VML for 20 years, Jon has served as global CEO since 2011. During Jon’s tenure at VML, the agency has grown from 30 employees in Kansas City, Missouri, to more than 2,500 on six continents. He embodies the agency's primary objective — to be the leading strategic partner for the world’s most forward-thinking brands. Jon helped guide VML to Advertising Age’s 2016 A-List honors, which recognizes the industry’s top 10 agencies. VML serves some of the world's most recognized and respected brands, including Bridgestone, Colgate-Palmolive, Ford, Kellogg, PepsiCo, Wendy’s and many more. Jon was recognized as the Advertising Professional of the Year by the American Advertising Federation (AAF-KC) and serves on the National Advisory Board of the National World War I Museum at Liberty Memorial in Kansas City, Missouri. Jon is a proud graduate of the University of Missouri with a Bachelor of Science in journalism.
