Patrick McGovern, Chairman, IDG Corp.

Published on .

Patrick McGovern
What: Chairman
Where: IDG Corp.
Why: McGovern continues to redefine IDG’s business as a Web-centric information company with ancillary activities, such as print publications and events, rather than the other way around. As a keynote speaker at the International Federation of Periodical Press (FIPP) in Beijing in May, McGovern pressed publishers to consider trying out new ideas online, given the relatively low start-up costs.
