Media and technology entrepreneur Chad Hurley will serve as this year's Park Distinguished Visitor. Hurley, the co-founder and former CEO of YouTube and now co-founder and CEO of AVOS, will speak on Wednesday, Sept. 25 at 7:30 p.m. in Emerson Suites. The event is free and open to the public.
Serving as a website, a brand, and a verb, YouTube is the world’s largest and most popular video sharing site and the third most visited site globally. At the genesis and development of this phenomenon is its cofounder and former CEO, Chad Hurley. Equal parts businessman and Silicon Valley maven, Hurley’s transition from working at PayPal to founding and growing YouTube has truly become the stuff of legend in business, technology, social, and educational circles around the world. In October 2007, Hurley (and his partner) sold YouTube to Google Inc. for $1.6 billion and still serves as the company’s advisor.
