Mark Lipton

Mark Lipton emails, “My recent book, Mean Men, launched in early September. It has been creating a stir, given the news of our president and some other entrepreneurial personalities whom I’ve featured (Harvey Weinstein, Lance Armstrong, Dov Charney, Trump, and a host of others).” Such men, the book argues, have built their careers on being mean, and we pay a price as a society. Mark is a graduate professor of management at the New School in New York City. He has long served as an adviser to Fortune 500 corporations, think tanks, philanthropic organizations, not-for-profits, and startups.
