Event description
All are welcome to join us for this informative virtual talk in which Professor Tedlow discusses the transformation of the American CEO.

About this event

This talk will discuss the transformation of the American CEO from the faceless bureaucrat of the post-World War II era to the symbol of the corporation and indeed of the future. The CEOs of dominant American corporations in the 1950s and 1960s were anonymous. Today, in sharp contrast, everyone knows the names Jobs, Musk, Winfrey, and Bezos among others. Why did this change take place? What does it portend?

About the speaker

Educated at Yale and Columbia, Richard S. Tedlow is the Class of 1949 Professor of Business Administration, Emeritus, at Harvard Business School. For more than three decades, Professor Tedlow taught business history, marketing, and business and government to thousands of MBAs and executives and was among the most highly rated teachers at the School. His books Giants of Enterprise (2001) and Andy Grove (2006) both made Business Week’s list of the top ten business books of the year, and the latter was selected by Barack Obama as one of the ten books he recommends for leaders. Professor Tedlow’s work has been translated into more than a half-dozen languages.

In 2010, Apple asked Professor Tedlow to join the company as a member of the newly created Apple University, the company’s internal executive education arm. In that capacity, he developed and taught classes for Apple executives until his retirement in 2018. It was his experience at Apple that was the inspiration for his most recent book, The Emergence of Charismatic Business Leadership.
