Former Director of Communications
Harley-Davidson Motor Company
Ken Schmidt sees opening hearts and minds as his life’s work. He is very passionate about teaching people how to build an entirely new corporate culture, rekindle relationships with customers, or reach out to new ones in completely untraditional ways. He loves to share his insights on non-traditional communications and customer relations – now for the benefit of the InnoTown audience.
As the former director of communications for Harley-Davidson Motor Company, he played an active and important role in one of the most celebrated turnarounds in corporate history – and got paid to ride motorcycles. Ken started working for Harley-Davidson in 1985. As a specialist in corporate positioning and media relations, he was asked to work with the then-struggling Harley-Davidson to help restore the company’s image and create demand for its motorcycles. Within a few years, Harley-Davidson became one of the most visible and frequently reported-on companies in the world, while sales of its motorcycles rocketed upward.
A Harley-Davidson motorcycle is more than just a mode of transportation or ordinary product. It has become an American icon that is much loved and recognized around the world. The company doesn’t sleep on their laurels, though; the Harley-Davidson Motor Company is dedicated to continuous innovation.
