Digital leadership with Kevin Ryan, Chairman and founder of Gilt, Business Insider and more

Minter Dialogue Episode #118 —

Kevin Ryan, CEO Gilt GroupeThis interview is with Kevin Ryan, a serial and highly successful entrepreneur. Kevin is the founder and Chairman of GILT, the luxury flash sale members-only site with over 9 million members, as well as the founder of Business Insider and co-founder of MongoDB (open source database software). Previously, Kevin was CEO of DoubleClick which was sold under his stewardship in 2005 for $1.1B (it was then sold on to Google). In this conversation, focusing largely on Gilt, we discuss issues of digital transformation and leadership in the digital age. Among other topics, we discuss the reality of test & learn, getting leadership buy-in and driving change.

Your website … is the biggest, best, most effective and fast focus group in the world.”
