Gee Ranasinha

Hello, my name is Gee Ranasinha. I am the Founder / CEO of KEXINO and the author of the small business marketing blog Business Value Matters.

Background

My background is in content creation: I founded and ran a successful media production company (advertising photography and TV commercials, mainly) before getting involved in professional image capture systems from companies such as Sinar, Leaf, PhaseOne and Dicomed in the days when professional-quality digital photography was in its infancy.

I then moved into the print and publishing industries, becoming Worldwide Director of Marketing for a software company based in Germany. Clients ranged from printing companies, publishers, in-house corporate marketing departments and government organizations on the one hand, all the way up to companies such as Time Inc., IKEA, Nestlé and WPP.

I was born, raised, and educated in London. Today the place I call home is Strasbourg, North-Eastern France.

Today

I run KEXINO, a different sort of marketing services company aimed at helping small-to-medium sized companies. Read this to learn more about why we think we’re different.

I’ve been writing articles and opinion pieces continuously since 1991 – at a time when the word “blog” didn’t even exist.

Our blog “Business Value Matters” is about making companies aware of the new rules of marketing, communications, sales and customer engagement. It’s about how technology has become the facilitator for businesses of every size to grow their reputation and trust in the minds of their customers.

While KEXINO keeps me very busy, I’m also Adjunct Lecturer on Digital Marketing to final-year MBA students at a university in Strasbourg. It’s hard work (especially setting and marking exams) but I absolutely love it.

Outside of work I’m a husband and father – you can take a look at my personal blog here. I’m a bit of a music and hi-fi nut – my iTunes folder is around 1Tb.

I also love to cook (French and Asian/Fusion, mainly) and play jazz piano (boogie-woogie and blues). I’m not very good at either of them, but it doesn’t seem to stop me!

 

Conference Speaking

Looking for an engaging, passionate, knowledgeable (and humorous) marketing speaker for your next conference, meeting, or workshop?

Thoughts, opinions, and observations in this age of disruption and interruption – totally customized for your audience.

A recent testimonial: “Gee’s ability to capture a room during his presentations is fantastic.”
