Tuesday, November 18, 2008 at 6:30 PM (EST)
Our speaker, Mark Moses (EO and YPO Orange County) knows about the intensity, focus and commitment it takes to be a successful CEO through good times and bad. A lifelong entrepreneur, Mark started his first company at age 19, built two thriving businesses from the ground up, and sold his latest company after growing it to $1.6 billion in volume. Along the way, Mark received a prestigious Ernst & Young “Entrepreneur Of The Year” award, and his companies were listed in the top 10 on the Inc. 500 fastest growing companies in America, recognized as the #1 fastest growing company in Los Angeles, and awarded the “Blue Chip Enterprise Award for Overcoming Adversity” by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.
What isn’t noted in these accomplishments are the many setbacks and challenges Mark faced along the way. It is these experiences Mark draws upon to bring his valuable message to other business leaders.
