Emerging Leaders CEO Spotlight

Emerging Leaders CEO Spotlight

On Tuesday, June 23rd, 40 Emerging Leaders of Los Angeles County gathered for a night of networking at the United Way of Greater Los Angeles headquarters to learn how an innovative executive advanced in his career by pursuing his passions.

Caitlin Crosby, Founder and CEO of The Giving Keys, hosted the event and interviewed the 2015 CEO Spotlight headliner, Brad Schwartz, President of Pop TV Network. Brad spoke about his start as Lorne Michael’s assistant on SNL before being asked to start MTV Canada from scratch. By taking risks and always aiming to do the extraordinary, at the age of 43, Brad became President of Pop, his sixth network to re-brand or launch.
"Work hard. Impress your boss. Be nice to people. Learn how to follow before wanting to lead. You can't Google how to be a CEO."

-- Brad Schwartz

By the end of the night, there were 68 attendees, who learned about bringing passion into their careers and becoming true leaders in Los Angeles County.

Ben Lewis, Area Sales Manager of the Southern CA District of UPS and Chair of the Emerging Leaders Cabinet, acknowledged this young group of professionals who give a minimum of $1,000 annually to United Way’s Creating Pathways out of Poverty fund.
