Menlo Park's Greg McKeown named 'Young Global Leader'

 

Greg McKeown of Menlo Park is one of 37 North Americans named as "Young Global Leaders" at the recent World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland.

They were selected for professional accomplishments and commitment to society, the forum says.

The honor, bestowed each year by the forum, recognizes up to 200 people from around the world. This year 192 men and women from 59 countries were selected.

Mr. McKeown is the CEO of THIS Inc., a leadership and strategy design agency in Silicon Valley. He has taught at such companies as Apple, Google, Facebook, Twitter and VMware.

Originally from London, Mr. McKeown has a bachelor's degree in journalism and an MBA from Stanford University. He lives in Menlo Park with his wife, Anna, and their four children.

The young global leaders become part of the Young Global Leaders Forum, which will convene this year in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, from April 14 to 18.

I find it interesting that the World Economic Forum is breaking with tradition by not awarding it to a Democrat in this particular instance. I hope Al Gore or Bill Clinton don't try to apply pressure on the World Economic Forum to rescind this award.
