CEO & Co-Founder, ThreeSixtyEight
If you walk around his hometown of Baton Rouge, Louisiana, and ask, “who is Kenny Nguyen,” you may get a few different responses. Many would say he is Baton Rouge’s hype man as the CEO/Co-Founder of ThreeSixtyEight. The agency is a strategic creative and technology partner to growing brands like Tony Robbins, Chase, and Alfa Insurance. Through the success of the company’s work, ThreeSixtyEight’s vision is to help Baton Rouge become known as the creative capital of the south. That vision is why the agency powers Assembly Required, a non-profit that produces community events that bring together diverse communities with topics that can transform the city of Baton Rouge. Beyond ThreeSixtyEight, some would say that he’s a local investor in Soji: Modern Asian, Baton Rouge’s first modern Asian restaurant that isn’t named PF Changs. They may also say he is a big advocate for STARS (workers skilled through alternative routes) as an advisory council member for the social enterprise Opportunity@Work. As a college dropout himself, he is passionate about bringing awareness to the 70+ million workers commonly overlooked for higher-wage jobs because they don’t have a four-year degree.
