Jesse Redniss is executive vice president of data strategy at Turner; and from a larger WarnerMedia purview, general manager of the WarnerMedia Innovation Lab. Since joining Turner in 2016, Redniss has taken on a variety of critical roles, all dedicated to the technological advancement of the company at large.
As general manager of the WarnerMedia Innovation Lab, Redniss oversees future-forward efforts to combine emerging technologies with premium WarnerMedia content, to create new and innovative consumer experiences and businesses. Established in 2019, a key accelerant to the Lab will be technology and infrastructure expertise garnered from across all of AT&T’s businesses. It will meld core competencies in areas spanning the “Internet of Things,” artificial intelligence, machine learning, virtual and mixed reality with WarnerMedia’s world class IP and creative talent, in order to design new experiences for consumers and drive more immersive content engagement. As part of this oversight, he also oversees WarnerMedia Investments, leading the company’s asset allocation within the startup community.
Redniss expanded his responsibilities when the Lab was announced in early 2019, continuing as executive vice president of Turner’s data strategy. With this role, Redniss collaborates with Turner corporate and business units to identify and capture the data required for effective decision-making across all areas of the business. He leads external data partnerships, which ultimately power the company’s data and analytics-driven products and experiences.
Prior to joining Turner, Redniss was at BRaVe Ventures, a strategic advisory and investment firm he co-founded. Following his time working at BRaVe where he consulted for a number of years with media and tech companies, Turner acquired the company and he joined TBS and TNT as chief innovation officer.
Earlier in his career, Redniss was the chief strategy officer at Spredfast. He also spent much of his career at USA Net
