Chris Hughes Biography

Best known as one of the co-founders of Facebook, Chris Hughes, along with his fellow Harvard roommates, took the simple concept of a student directory and turned it into a multi-billion dollar global phenomenon, setting the template for today’s social media landscape and transforming the way the world sends, shares and disseminates information. Yet while many others would have been content to sit back and enjoy the massive success of such a revolutionary venture, Hughes has continued in his drive to set the new standards of both communication and the power to influence through new media.

After leaving Facebook, Hughes coordinated the online presidential campaign for Barack Obama in 2008, merging the power of social media with politics and redefining the future of political campaigning. Hughes’ unprecedented success in this arena garnered him the title of “The Kid Who Made Obama President” by Fast Company magazine. Most recently, Hughes purchased the 100-year-old magazine The New Republic, in which he currently serves as publisher and editor-in-chief. Following his trend of disruption among the establishment, Hughes is leading the transition from a magazine into a multi-platform media company at the forefront of political and national affairs coverage.

Hughes’ keen ability to identify areas of opportunity and develop innovative ways to support and monetize those needs makes him an ideal speaker for any organization looking to take advantage of the new rules facing business today. From establishing the elusive “start-up” culture in big business to fostering meaningful disruption that can drive markets, Hughes helps companies of all sizes learn how to exceed and succeed in today’s fast moving global economy.
