Tony Hsieh, Zappos CEO, Confirmed as Guest Speaker
at SAP Global Partner Summit

We are pleased to announce that Zappos CEO Tony Hsieh will be featured as the guest speaker at SAP Global Partner Summit in Orlando on June 4. Hsieh sold his first company to Microsoft in 1999, at age 24, and has since turned Zappos into the online powerhouse that it is today. Tony is now applying his successful Zappos corporate culture model (recognized multiple times by FORTUNE as one of the top 100 best places to work) to help build the most community-focused large city in the world – in none other than Las Vegas! Join us in the keynote theatre as Tony discusses his new $350 million Downtown Project, which is creating a unique hybrid of corporation, community, and city to drive productivity and innovation.

Tony will precede SAP CEO Bill McDermott, who will close out the day with his insightful perspective on the power of partnership and share his vision to make the world run better and improve people’s lives by helping every customer become a best-run business.
