Major League Baseball Advanced Media's Robert A. Bowman -- Bob Bowman serves as the president and CEO of MLB Advanced Media, a position he has held since 2000. Following Baseball Commissioner Allan H. (Bud) Selig's recommendation in January 2000, professional baseball owners voted to centralize their collective Internet and interactive media operations under one roof by building a technology company: MLBAM. Over its first 13 years guided by Bowman and his team, MLBAM's developmental evolution and work in the interactive space has not only made it a model for building a successful and sustainable 21st Century digital media operation, but ultimately may define it as one of the great American business success stories. John Hollar, CEO of the Computer History Museum, will conduct a play-by-play interview with Bowman about the path that led to MLBAM, and how with great leadership and deft political skills he was able to turn a fledgling startup into a multimedia powerhouse.
