he Business Council of Fairfield County is honored to present Mike Perlis as our keynote speaker for our 47th Annual Member Luncheon.
Mike Perlis, CEO & Executive Chairman, Forbes Media LLC is a media industry CEO with deep experience managing a wide range of content and multimedia brands. He started his own media company — “New England Publications,” — at the age of 25 where he employed 40 people. This is where he first honed the concept of “generalist” CEO – a management style that has become his trademark and where the CEO is more like the conductor of an orchestra rather than a musician.
Mike calls himself a “Recovering Venture Capitalist.” He joined Forbes Media in 2010 from SoftBank Capital, where he served as a General Partner for 10 years investing in digital startups like Buzzfeed and Huffington Post and continues to be Special Partner.
