Tom Bergeron

Editor and Chief Content Officer & Founder, ROI-NJ

Tom Bergeron has served as the emcee for the Association for Corporate Growth NJ's annual conference focusing on companies that have successfully drawn on an innovative culture to drive profitability over time. Not every company is an innovator. It takes a special personality, energy, commitment and confidence to take risks. As the emcee for the morning, Tom will be showcasing five unique CEOs who have each been selected for their unique ability to nurture a culture that supports a bold approach and to create a sustainable business model. In addition, Tom will present ACG NJ's keynote speaker, Rick Taylor, who is the President and CEO of Konica Minolta. Rick is accepting the ACG NJ Lifetime Achievement Award on behalf of the company, sharing the distinctive environment and philosophy that is at the core of Konica Minolta's amazing success story. Tom Bergeron himself is the right choice as emcee because of his own innovative style and approach to business. He will share some of the insights he has gained and the trends and challenges he has observed during his years of involvement in the state's business community. He has been a primary connector between businesses, a driver of change and a leader among his colleagues and across New Jersey.
