In today’s relentlessly evolving media ecology, Peter Kreisky brings invaluable experience and vision.
He has a proven record of being among the first to recognize the serious challenges introduced by digital technologies – and a record of shaping the transformation in thinking that these technologies require.
Focusing today on a select group of advisory clients, from legacy media to creatively disruptive start-ups, Peter brings 30+ years of unique experience in pattern recognition to successfully counseling CEOs and their teams. He offers deep industry expertise, insights and knowledge of the strategies and best practices of leading media companies around the world, together with an extensive network of connections among industry leaders.
He is also a highly-sought commentator on the media industry, quoted frequently in leading publications such as The Economist, Business Week, The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, The Guardian, Digiday and The Financial Times and speaking often at industry conferences and events around the world.
Peter founded the Kreisky Media Consultancy LLC, a highly-respected strategy boutique, in 2002 after ten years at the helm of the Mercer Management Consulting (now Oliver Wyman) Media and Entertainment Practice, which he founded. This was preceded by senior roles at McKinsey & Company and CBS Inc., and more recently at BCG and Time Warner. He has served more than 50 media clients in North America, Europe, South America and Asia across hundreds of assignments.
Peter holds an MBA from Stanford Business School and an M.A. from Cambridge University. He is a Faculty Advisor to Yale School of Management’s Publishing and Digital Media Program.
