Domo Introduces CEO.com
New, Free Service From Josh James’ Domo Helps Busy Executives Stay Armed with Leadership Lessons from the World’s Most Interesting CEOs
Silicon Slopes, Utah – May 31, 2012 – Today Domo introduces CEO.com™. This new, free service is designed to help busy executives stay up-to date with what’s happening at the leadership level across top industries, as well as stay armed with the latest business strategies and best practices from the world’s most interesting CEOs. CEO.com was founded by Josh James before he launched Domo.
“When I was at BYU, a successful entrepreneur advised my entrepreneurship class to read every business book or magazine that we could get our hands on,” said James. “I thought that was great advice and today, I still devour as many business stories as I can. While experience is often the best teacher— and sometimes the most painful one, you don’t need to experience everything first-hand to learn the lessons. That’s why I started CEO.com.”
CEO.com will showcase dozens of interviews by James of fellow CEOs. “The interview component has been enjoyable. I love learning what makes people tick. I’m looking forward to sharing these feature interviews and the insights and experiences of these inspiring leaders, as well as sharing some of their untold stories you won’t read anywhere else.”
CEO.com’s fresh content also includes infographics, CEO lists and original features. In addition, CEO.com’s editorial team scours hundreds of publications each day to find the best content for and about the world’s most interesting CEOs and deliver it to qualified subscribers in an easy-to-consume newsletter.
“Prior to CEO.com and Domo, all of the companies and products I built were geared for marketing executives,” said James. “This time around, I’m designing products that serve my needs as CEO. The experience of delivering services that I personally rely on every day is exciting and gratifying. I hope my peers will feel the same.”
CEO.com plans to add new services and features for its community over time, including customizable alerts, which readers will be able to set to help them stay on top of breaking news related to topics and leaders they care about. CEO.com can also be followed on Twitter via @ceo_com, @joshjames, @domotalk and on Facebook.
