Chairman and CEO
MicroStrategy and Best Selling Author of “The Mobile Wave”
Michael Saylor has served as Chief Executive Officer and Chairman of the Board of Directors of the publicly traded company MicroStrategy since founding it in November 1989. With degrees in Aeronautics and Astronautics as well as Science, Technology, and Society from MIT, he is a science historian and a formidable intellectual whom Slate called "mesmerizing."
Saylor is not just a high-tech entrepreneur, but also a serious scholar whose success in business stems from his obsession since college-and really since childhood-with understanding what Thomas Kuhn called the "structure of scientific revolutions."
He has appeared on TV interview shows including 60 Minutes and Charlie Rose, and has been profiled in Newsweek, Time, Slate, The New Yorker, and The Washington Post.
