Matthew Szulik and the Red Hat vision


The BBC conducted a great interview with Red Hat Chairman Matthew Szulik while he was attending the Ernst & Young World Entrepreneur of the Year awards recentlyszulik (representing the United States as our winner). You can listen to it here.

This interview is a wonderful reminder of the powerful impact of a corporate vision that extends beyond just making money. And a great reminder for me of how lucky I have been to learn about leadership, community, culture, and brand from the 2008 United States Entrepreneur of the Year.

If you are interested in learning more about Matthew Szulik, his vision, and how it evolved, here is a wonderful oral history of his life that was commissioned a few years ago.

  1. Chris, thanks for Matthew’s oral history of his life! Fills in some blanks for me, he is still very much admired and missed from my perspective…
