About John Cloonan

 

John lives near Woodstock, Georgia with his partner Suzanne, his dog Seamus, and when she’s home from college, his daughter, Annie.

He’s been riding a motorcycle since the 1980s, and very quickly found that his preferences ran more to speed than anything else. He’s got decades of track days and racing under his belt, and recently some sport-touring.

After more than a decade off the racetrack, John realized something – he missed being a motorcycle racer something awful. So for his 50th birthday, he decided his gift to himself was to go racing again. He bought a bike, he made a plan. COVID-19 delayed that plan. But the bike got built and a year of track days happened for practice, and thanks to his sponsors, 2022 was his first racing season… well, in a really long time.

On the business side, he holds an MBA in marketing, and has created growth strategies as a marketing executive and agency owner for everything from startups to multibillion dollar companies.

His early career was dedicated to creating the weirdest possible résumé. He’s been a marketing consultant, agency founder, and marketing executive. He’s developed others as a leader and university professor (oh, and an inline skating instructor). He’s held leadership roles in industries from staffing to behavioral health to capital-C consulting. He’s branded or rebranded over 100 companies. Now the founder and part-owner of Audacity Marketing, he helps his diverse partners create innovative marketing solutions for small-to-medium businesses.
