Mike Perlis


I'm a media industry CEO with deep experience managing a wide range of content and multimedia brands. I joined Forbes Media as President and CEO in 2010 and spearheaded the transformation of the business into a digitally driven global media and branding company with technology at the center of its strategy. Prior to Forbes, I served ten years as a General Partner at the venture capital firm Softbank, investing in digital startups. When I'm not in my day-to-day role as CEO, I'm an adventurer and outdoorsman, and I relish the opportunity to visit unusual places with the fascinating people I meet through Forbes.

I write about unique events and fascinating people I meet.
