Inspiring lessons on business and life from Frank Savage

Frank Savage's is an unlikely success story. Raised in segregated Washington, DC, by his mother, a hairdresser and entrepreneur with little formal education, Savage's career has taken him around the world as a globetrotting financier. From his first banking job at Citibank to his current position as Chairman Emeritus of Howard University, The Savage Way shares the life and business lessons he learned along the way. This memoir relates the many starts and stops, successes and failures in his long career, from his involvement in the collapse of Enron, to his experience investing in Africa, to his days as a competitive yachtsman—always guided by the wisdom of the mother who taught him to transcend all limits.

  • A powerful memoir of an inspiring business leader
  • Savage is the current Chairman of his alma mater, Howard University, and the CEO of the global financial services company Savage Holdings LLC

A rare and inspiring story of personal and professional challenge and ultimate triumph, The Savage Way is a memoir that offers powerful inspiration and wisdom for tomorrow's business leaders.



Autorentext

FRANK SAVAGE, Chairman Emeritus of Howard University, served as chairman of Howard University from 1997 until 2004 and is credited with spearheading the widely successful Campaign for Howard. He is CEO of Savage Holdings LLC, a global financial services company. Prior to forming Savage Holdings, he was chairman of Alliance Capital Management International, a division of Alliance Capital Management, a $700 billion asset management subsidiary of AXA Equitable Life Insurance Company. Mr. Savage has had a distinguished career in international banking, corporate finance, and global investment management. He serves on the boards of several corporations and nonprofit organizations, including Bloomberg LP and the New York Academy of Medicine, having previously served on the boards of Lockheed Martin, Qualcomm, and the New York Philharmonic. Savage earned a BA from Howard University and an MA from the Johns Hopkins' Paul H. Nitze School of Advanced International Studies. He was awarded an Honorary Doctorate in Humane Letters from Hofstra University and an Honorary Doctorate of Humanities from Howard University. Perhaps the award he is proudest of is the prestigious Lord Nelson Trophy as 2003 overall winner of the annual Antigua Race Week Regatta.



Klappentext

Praise for The Savage Way

"Frank Savage is a great American success story, and the pioneering journey he takes you on in The Savage Way is guided not only by his boundless ambition, but also his high ideals."
MICHAEL R. BLOOMBERG, New York City Mayor and founder of Bloomberg LP

"The Savage Way is an American success story, the kind we don't hear enough about: an African-American man who broke barriers in the rarefied world of international finance. Frank Savage's story provides remarkable insight into the world he made his own, even when no one in it looked like him. It is also the story of the power of a Mother's love and values, which he had no choice but to embrace."
Vernon E. Jordan, Jr., Esq., Senior Counsel, Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld, LLP, Senior Managing Director, Lazard Freres & Co.

"What always struck me about Frank was his obvious dedication to helping ensure that the young Democratic Republic of South Africa succeeds to address all its challenges. . . . I am certain that the younger generations certainly in the U.S. and Africa would do themselves a great favor by reading and learning from The Savage Way."
THABO MBEKI, President of South Africa, 19992008

"One of the qualities I've most admired about Frank is that he has made his big dreams a reality. And he has brought others along with him, opening doors for many people and creating opportunities for minority-owned businesses."
KENNETH I. CHENAULT, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, American Express Company

"Frank Savage could have stopped at writing an excellent and thought-provoking memoir. However, it has never been his way to do just enough. Savage goes further, sharing the valuable lessons of an extraordinary life, expressed through his love of sailing. Savage shows that not all paths to self-discovery and fulfillment are by landsometimes the journey is by sea."
EARL G. GRAVES, Sr., Chairman, founder, and publisher of Black Enterprise
