When Lawrence Levy received a call from Steve Jobs in 1994, to see if wanted to run Pixar’s business, his life altered. Over the next twelve years, Levy served as Pixar’s Chief Financial Officer, a member of its Office of the President and later as a member of its board of directors. He transformed Pixar from a money-losing graphics company into an entertainment powerhouse and in turn changed the game of the animation industry.
His rare insight into the merging of creativity and technology allowed him to develop leadership strategies that are now shifting the mindset of executives and creatives globally.
In 2003, together with four co-founders, Lawrence created a non-profit called Juniper Foundation that focuses on bringing Indo-Tibetan meditation practices to contemporary life.
He has crystalized these ideas for realizing our potential as individuals and for creating human-centered organizations that foster creativity, dignity, and excellence.
