Andrew Eklund

Founder and CEO, Ciceron

Andrew is obsessed with bringing the inherent powers of customers and brands together to help everyone flourish. Digital technologies, social networks, and creativity have created a potent human confluence. Andrew works with Ciceron’s clients to become more open, more innovative, and more responsive to the world in which they compete. Andrew’s work is to create environments, teams, and leaders who embrace this emerging way of doing business, then empower them with teams who deliver results every day. Andrew has spoken extensively around the country at industry conferences, including MediaPost Summits, the Governor’s Conference on Tourism in Las Vegas, E-Tourism Summit, MarketingSherpa, MobCon, many MIMA events, and many more.

In February of 2017, Andrew was named one of Minnesota Business’s “Paragons of Leadership,” a distinction given to business executives who make “a positive impact through service, character, and leadership.” In May 2016, Andrew was selected as one of “The (Real) Power 50 of 2016” by the same magazine, and in 2011, he was named as one of the “200 Minnesotans You Should Know” by the Twin Cities Business magazine. Ciceron has been named as one of the “Top 100 Places To Work” on numerous occasions including every year since 2014. In July of 2016 and 2017, Ciceron was also named a Best Place to Work by the Business Journal. Andrew is most proud of these team recognitions. Andrew serves on the boards of MacPhail Center for Music and the Greater Twin Cities Youth Symphonies. He’s also one of the original members of The Big Wu and is debatably the world’s biggest Phish fan.
