Founder and CEO of Mandalay Entertainment, the visionary multimedia venture spanning movies, TV, sports, and new media, Peter Guber is among the most successful executives and entrepreneurs in the entertainment and communications industries. Films he personally produced or executive produced, including Rain Man, Batman, The Color Purple, Midnight Express, Gorillas in the Mist, The Witches of Eastwick, Missing and Flashdance, have resonated with audiences all over the world, earning over three billion dollars worldwide and garnering more than fifty Academy Award nominations.

Mr. Guber led Sony Pictures as Chairman & CEO, Columbia Pictures as President, Polygram as Chairman & CEO, and Casablanca Record & Filmworks as Co-Owner and Co-Chairman. While at Sony, the company achieved an industry-best domestic box office market-share of 17%, and led all competitors with the highest four-year total of Academy Award nominations ever for a single company.

A passionate, humorous, and tireless motivator and speaker, Peter Guber has dedicated himself to coaching current and future leaders about the importance of telling purposeful stories to propel their business success. He is the sponsor of e2e: A Day of Generosity, an annual conclave in which top business story telling experts and leaders share story telling best practices, brainstorm, and collaborate on bringing the magic of telling purposeful stories to the people of enterprises everywhere.

Mr. Guber has been a full professor at the UCLA School of Theater, Film, and Television for nearly four decades. Among the many courses he launched is "Navigating a Narrative World," bringing in experts such as Deepak Chopra, Pat Riley, Chris Anderson, Bran Ferran, and dozens of other high profile guests to converse with him in front of the graduate students from the schools of business, theater, film and television, law, and public policy about the importance of telling purposeful stories in their disciplines.

Peter Guber is a member of the UCLA Foundation Board of Trustees, as well as the winner of UCLA's prestigious Service Award for his accomplishments in association with the school. He is the Chair of the Founding Board of Advisors for the Center for Managing Enterprises in Media, Entertainment, and Sports (MEMES) at the UCLA Anderson School of Management.

Mr. Guber turned this legacy and experience in front of the camera where he was seen every Sunday morning for six years on American Movie Classics (AMC) cable network, as co-host of the critically acclaimed national TV show, Shootout. AMC moved his talents to prime time with a series of one hour specials in 2009 called StoryMakers. He can currently be seen as co-host of In the House, a weekly, national half-hour news and interview show on Encore and KNBC.

He can also be seen weekly as an entertainment and media analyst on Fox Business News' America's Nightly Scoreboard with David Asman.

In November of 2010, Peter Guber, together with Joe Lacob, Managing Partner of Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers, acquired the Golden State Warriors. He is owner and co-executive chairman of the NBA franchise that services the Bay Area.

A noted author, Mr. Guber co-wrote the best seller, Shootout, published by Penguin Putnam, which was released in hardcover and paperback. In December 2007, he wrote the cover article for the Harvard Business Review titled, "The Four Truths of the Storyteller." He also authored op-ed pieces for The New York Times and the San Francisco Chronicle.
