Editor of Forbes Magazine is reimagining the rules for business

Prophix Software, a global leader in Corporate Performance Management (CPM) software, announced that Randall Lane, Editor of Forbes Magazine is tapped to deliver the keynote address at the 2017 Prophix User Conference.

Randall Lane is the editor of Forbes Magazine, where he has helped it reach its highest-ever U.S. readership (6.7 million) with new emphases on young innovators and disruptors. These are people reimagining the rules for business and rethinking the potential for entrepreneurs to solve the world’s most intractable problems, whether through their business missions or philanthropy.

Randall Lane understands the entrepreneurial mindset because he’s been an entrepreneur himself. Before returning to Forbes as the editor in 2011, Lane after spent more than a decade co-founding, serving as editor-in-chief and, in the latter case, the CEO of two media startups that in aggregate launched almost a dozen magazines and related web sites, including P.O.V. (Adweek’s “Startup of the Year”), Trader Monthly, and Dealmaker.

Based on these initiatives, Lane created two of the most significant annual events of the past decade: The Forbes 400 Summit on Philanthropy, which gathers the world’s billionaires to tackle global problems, and the Under 30 Summit, which convenes 2,000 Millennial entrepreneurs and game-changers from the Forbes 30 Under 30 lists to help chart a course for business over the next 50 years. His latest book project covers the latter topic: You Only Have to Be Right Once: The Unprecedented Rise of the Instant Tech Billionaire (Penguin).
