The New York Times, perhaps one of the most iconic newspapers in the world, recently announced a major transition. Arthur O. Sulzberger, Jr., who became publisher of The Times in 1992 announced last month that he would be handing off this role to his son, A. G. Sulzberger effective January 1, 2018. The senior Sulzberger will, however, stay on as chairman of The New York Times Company. As chairman of one of the most storied media companies since Gutenberg invented the printing press, we are thrilled that Arthur O. Sulzberger, Jr. will be a keynote speaker at the 2018 Conscious Capitalism CEO Summit (October 9-11 in Austin, Texas).
What kind of lessons learned will Arthur O. have to share with the Conscious Capitalism community? Here’s a conversation on leadership he had a few years back with Knowledge@Wharton, the business journal for the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania.
