Peter Panepento is principal at Panepento Strategies, a full-service content, digital, and social strategy firm. His clients include media companies, nonprofits, membership associations, and government agencies. Before starting his own firm, Peter led The Chronicle of Philanthropy's transition into digital journalism and social media -- a transition that included the creation of some of the nonprofit world's richest online communities, the launch of a highly profitable webinar series, and the creation of new digital products such as the How America Gives giving database. He also led the Council on Foundations' effort to create the Philanthropy Exchange, a closed social network that helps foundation leaders collaborate and solve problems and has earned praise from First Lady Michelle Obama for its ability to bring together philanthropy, the government, and nonprofits to coordinate services to military veterans.

Peter is a frequent speaker at conferences and meetings across the United States, talking about how nonprofit groups and companies can build more effective digital and social media strategies. He has been quoted in publications as diverse as The New York Times, Mashable.com, Forbes, Financial Times, and The Washington Post, as well as on radio programs such as NPR's Morning Edition and Public Radio International’s The Takeaway.
