Rhonda Lowry
An intrapreneur and provocateur, Rhonda Lowry moves fluidly between emerging technologies, consumer markets and business opportunities within the Social Web.

Rhonda K. Lowry is vice president, emerging social web technologies, for Turner Broadcasting System Inc. Creating TBS’s social strategies has given Lowry a deep understanding of emerging digital and social web technologies and behavioral trends across the spectrum of social computing — networking, blogs, virtual worlds, gaming, and online collaboration. Lowry says her personal mantra is "Vision, Values, Verve," meaning the ability to visualize the end game, the values to lead ethically and with purpose, and the verve to execute with what she calls “shameless audacity.” She's a collaborator, developer, systems thinker, integrator and executor of new technologies.

Prior to her current role, Lowry was vice president within the new products group and led the development of several key digital business innovations. Lowry developed a CNN iReport presence in the virtual world of Second Life — which was successfully used to establish and transfer community insights and communication skills for the CNN iReport team.
