Sven Krong Résumé

Experience

I have been an innovator in interactive and application technology for over 20 years. Prior to that I worked in Film, Television and Video. At 14 I started working professionally as a production assistant on Sesame Street insert shoots. During NYU film school I worked as a production coordinator on over 75 industrial video in the US and abroad. I then worked on commercials, television programs and theatrical films in a variety of roles.

Always working with top brands, I took my extensive production experience and taught myself interactive programming which combined my visual and audio production skills to create innovative interactive experiences. Early interactive work involved the short lived CD-ROM format, which quickly led to online interactive projects. Since 1995 I have won over 45 industry awards recognizing my talent for incorporating cutting edge technology with savvy marketing.

I have founded and run numerous technology companies, which has leveraged my business acumen with my talent for putting top creative and technical teams together creating consumer experiences and applications that are successful, award winning, and always way ahead of the curve.

As the President and cofounder of Click Active Media Inc., I developed the company from a 2-person start up into a 25-person interactive media agency that garnered over 50 major industry awards. I also handled strategic business development of emerging technologies to constantly expand the core business capabilities of the company.

My roles included all aspects of running an interactive agency. I developed and managed client accounts, created and presented proposals, and oversaw the production and delivery of awarded projects to the creative, technical, and production teams. I ensured projects were produced on time, within budget, and exceeded client expectations.
